, I found it in the very nice book "Bernadotteporträtt från två sekel" (two centuries of Bernadottian portraits) which I bought in Stockholm this June.

Great, I also bought the same book and in June this year in Stockholm ; ). I'd say the book is quite good, with really nice reproductions.

Thats funny, Sveta! :) It was actually quite cold in Stockholm in June so I had plenty of time for shopping...
As Sveta said the book has a lot of beautiful paintings from the Bernadotte family, beginning with Karl XIV. Johan and ending with King Karl XVI. Gustav and Queen Silvia. Eventhough I have a lot of books on the Swedes I was surprised that a lot of portraits were new to me and the text is very well researched and informative as well.

This is great news for me as a portrait lover ;)

If you have time post some...it would be interesting to see the portraits unknown to us or the portraits of unknown royals like you and Sveta posted here in various threads...

Thank you very much! ;) They are so good that they made m day ;)

I remember reading in the recent Haakon & Maud biography that Haakon's mother Sessan noted about the celebratory dinner at the opening of the Randsfjord Railway in Norway in 1868 that "Uncle August got quite drunk"! :-)

It is said that August's nickname for Teresia was "Lilla Hoppetossan" - this nickname is untranslatable.
Lol, cool! I am sure that the people who translated the name of August's dukedom Dalarna as Dalecarlia would give it a try!
