German Princess. She was not genuinely a member of Swedish royalty but her grave is prominent among them in the main Pantheon of Sweden. She was an unmarried maternal aunt of King Gustav II Adolph of Sweden and sister of Dowager Queen Christina, Oldenburg Dynasty. She lived in Sweden from as early as 1618, and at the time of her death. Princess Agnes was a hunchback and probably spent most or all of her life in Nyköping, Stockholm and other Swedish locations, after her sister became Duchess and later Queen there.
