June 17, 1884 – Birth of Prince Wilhelm, Duke of Södermanland, the second of the three sons of King Gustav V of Sweden, at Tullgarn Palace in Södermanland, Sweden Wilhelm was the second son of King Gustaf V of Sweden and his wife Victoria of Baden. On 3 May 1908, in Tsarskoye Selo, Wilhelm married Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia, a daughter of Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich of Russia by his first wife Princess Alexandra of Greece. The bride was a cousin of the reigning Russian tsar, Nicholas II and of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. The couple had only one son: Prince Lennart, Duke of Småland and later Count of Wisborg. The marriage was unhappy. Their son, Lennart, later wrote an autobiography in which he revealed how Maria, like her aunt and namesake the duchess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, felt that she had married beneath herself in marrying a younger son of the king of Sweden, and this caused problems of ego between the couple. Maria insisted that the servants address her by her correct style Your Imperial and Royal Highness, to the chagrin of her husband, who was merely a Royal Highness. Nor was this all. Maria also made her husband feel sexually inadequate. Maria sought a divorce which was granted in 1914, and returned to Russia. Wilhelm had a relationship, which was not publicly known, with Jeanne de Tramcourt which lasted for more than 30 years. Wilhelm was a noted photographer and the author of several books written in Swedish under the nom de plume Prins Wilhelm. He died in is sleep, from a heart attack, in Flen, just 12 days before his 81st birthday. #swedishroyalty

June 17, 1682 – Birth of King Carl XII of Sweden at Tre Kronor Castle which was on the site of the present Royal Palace in Stockholm, Sweden Carl was the only surviving son of Carl XI and Ulrika Eleonora the Elder. Carl was an exceptionally skilled military leader and tactician as well as an able politician, credited with introducing important tax and legal reforms. As for his famous reluctance towards peace efforts, he is quoted by Voltaire as saying upon the outbreak of the war; "I have resolved never to start an unjust war but never to end a legitimate one except by defeating my enemies". With the war consuming more than half his life and nearly all his reign, he never married and fathered no children. He was succeeded by his sister Ulrika Eleonora, who in turn was coerced to hand over all substantial powers to the Riksdag of the Estates and opted to surrender the throne to her husband, who became King Frederick I of Sweden #swedishroyalty

June 16, 1858 – Birth of King Gustav V of Sweden at Drottningholm Palace in Drottningholm, Sweden Gustaf V was the eldest son of Prince Oscar and Sofia of Nassau. On 20 September 1881 he married Princess Victoria of Baden in Karlsruhe, Germany. She was the granddaughter of Sophie, Grand Duchess of Baden, the daughter of deposed Gustav IV Adolf of Vasa Dynasty. Victoria's marriage to Gustaf V united the reigning Bernadotte dynasty with the former royal house of Holstein-Gottorp, and thus was popular throughout Sweden. The couple had three sons. Reigning from the death of his father Oscar II in 1907 until his own death 43 years later, he holds the record of being the oldest monarch of Sweden and the third-longest reigning after Magnus IV and Carl XVI Gustaf. He was also the last Swedish monarch to exercise his royal prerogatives, which largely died with him, although formally abolished only with the remaking of the Swedish constitution in 1974. He was the first Swedish king since the High Middle Ages not to have a coronation and hence never wore a crown, a tradition continuing to date. Following his death at age 92, he was implicated in a homosexual affair in the Haijby affair. His supposed lover – career criminal Kurt Haijby – was imprisoned in 1952 for blackmail of the court in the 1930s. (Homosexuality was a criminal offense in Sweden until 1944, though Gustaf's position would have granted automatic immunity.) An avid hunter and sportsman, he presided over the 1912 Olympic Games and chaired the Swedish Association of Sports from 1897 to 1907. Most notably, he represented Sweden (under the alias of Mr G.) as a competitive tennis player, keeping up competitive tennis until his 80s, when his eyesight deteriorated rapidly. He died from flu complications and was succeeded by his son, Gustaf VI Adolf. #swedishroyalty
