Prince and Duke. Religious personality. Bernadotte Dynasty. Duke of Gothland. Son of King Oscar II and Queen Sofia. Prince also of Norway (until 1888). Married below royalty in 1888 and was then called Prince Oscar Bernadotte in Sweden. Also granted that title in the nobility of Luxembourg, plus the title of Count of Wisborg, by his uncle, Grand Duke Adolph in 1892. In Sweden, the special name Bernadotte af Wisborg also was approved by that country's king and developed among certain descendants. For the rest of his lifetime, he was not considered Swedish royalty, but after death he is so, as per standard historical practice (see for example Edward VIII of England).
