Swedish composer, Swedish princess by birth, and Grand Duchess of Oldenburg by marriage. She was the daughter of King Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden and Frederica of Baden.
The youngest of four children, Cecilia left Sweden in 1810 with her family after her father was deposed as king of Sweden by the Coup of 1809. She was raised in her mother's home country, the Grand Duchy of Baden (Germany). After her parents were divorced in 1812, she was raised mainly by her grandmother Amalie of Hesse-Darmstadt in Bruchsal.
She married August, Grand Duke of Oldenburg (1783–1853) on 5 May 1831 in Vienna. It was August's third marriage. They had three sons together.
Cecilia died on 27 January 1844 at the age of 36 from puerperal fever, a few days after giving birth to her third child Elimar.
