Swedish royalty, originally styled Prince Carl, Duke of Östergötland, who was the youngest child and only son of Prince Carl of Sweden and Princess Ingeborg of Denmark. To distinguish himself from his father, he was widely known as Carl Junior. He was the brother of Queen Astrid of Belgium and Crown Princess Märtha of Norway.

On 6 July 1937, Prince Carl married Countess Elsa von Rosen (1904–1991), thus relinquishing his succession rights and his royal titles. She was the daughter of one Count von Rosen and ex-wife of another Count von Rosen. Bernadotte's brother-in-law, King Leopold III of Belgium, conferred upon him the title Prince Bernadotte in the Belgian nobility on the same date, with the right to a comital title for his male-line descendants.

He had one daughter, called Countess Madeleine Berndotte (b. Stockholm, 8 October 1938) and divorced Elsa in 1951. He married Ann Margareta Larsson (1921–1975) at Danderyd, Sweden, on 1 November 1954. They divorced in 1961 without issue. His third and final marriage was held at the Embassy of Sweden in Rabat, Morocco, on 8 June 1978 to Kristine Rivelsrud.

Bernadotte died at age 92 on 27 June 2003 in Málaga, Spain.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Swedish newspapers, e.g. Aftonbladet, 10 January 1911: "En ny svensk prins välsignelse lyckligen förlöst med en prins KL 11,20 f.m." (Translation: A new Swedish prince's blessing, happily delivered of a prince at 11.20 AM).

His Swedish Wikipedia entry gives 10:20 AM: "född klockan 10.20 den 10 januari 1911 i Stockholm." The source is given as Gustaf V och hans tid 1907–1918 by Erik Lindorm (1979), p. 168. [1].
