Lennart Bernadotte (1939)


Swedish-German landscaper, filmmaker and photographer, he was a grandson of King Gustaf V of Sweden, and the first Swede in history to have his royal titles removed due to his own actions.

Bernadotte was born at the Royal Palace in Stockholm, to Prince Wilhelm, Duke of Södermanland, and Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia. At birth Bernadotte was a Swedish prince and was titled Duke of Småland. In 1932, he married Karin Nissvandt, a morganatic marriage, and thereafter ceased to be referred to by his royal titles. Thus, he became the first Swede in history to have his royal titles removed due to his own actions and was called Mr. Bernadotte as a result. Nineteen years after he lost his Swedish royal titles, he was given titles of nobility in Luxembourg.

Lennart Bernadotte published two memoirs, Käre prins, godnatt (1977) and Mainau min medelpunkt (1995). He married twice and had nine children. He died on 21 December 2004 at age 95 in Schloss Mainau, Lake Constance, Germany.
