Count Carl Johan was born October 31, 1916. Several years ago, I had the honor of being invited to lunch by the Count and his wife Gunila. A charming couple.
Count Carl Johan was the last surviving great-grandchild of Queen Victoria. He was the uncle of both King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.
