Count Sigvard Bernadotte Of Wisborg

Sigvard Oscar Fredrik Bernadotte, Count of Wisborg (Drottningholm, 7 June 1907 – Stockholm, 4 February 2002) was a Swedish industrial designer.

He was the second son of King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden and his first wife, Princess Margaret of Connaught and was originally known as Prince Sigvard, Duke of Uppland, but lost his royal titles in 1934 when he married a commoner.

From 1994 to 2002, he was the oldest living great-grandchild of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, and having reached the age of 94, he was her longest-lived male descendant until being overtaken by his younger brother Carl Johan on 29 June 2011.

Famous quotes containing the word count:

    It is not worth the while to go round the world to count the cats in Zanzibar. Yet do this even till you can do better, and you may perhaps find some “Symmes’ Hole” by which to get at the inside at last.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
