Countess Palatine of Kleeburg Christina Magdalena (circa 1660)


Swedish-German nobility, as the daughter of Johann Casimir, Count Palatine of Kleeburg and Princess Catherine of Sweden (a granddaughter of Gustav I of Sweden, making Christina a link between the house of Vasa and the later houses of Holstein-Gottorp and Bernadotte). Christina Magdalena was a sister of King Carl X Gustav of Sweden, and grew up in Sweden.

On 30 November 1642 [OS] she married Friedrich VI, Margrave of Baden-Durlach. All Swedish kings from Adolf Fredrik to Karl XIII descend from Christina Magdalena. The eight children of Friedrich and Christina included two ancestors of Swedish royal lines.

She died on 4 August 1662 [OS], aged 46, in Carlsburg Castle.
