Queen Victoria of Sweden, who has been an invalid for many years, is "seriously ill" at her villa in Rome, the AP reports.
Her husband, King Gustav V, is with her. An official bulletin was released today stating that the Queen has "persistent coughing which caused fatigue. Unsatisfactory heart functioning and a weakening of strength that aroused uneasiness." Victoria, 68, "passed a relatively calm night."
