In newspapers

When I became 30 years old I got interviewed in both local newspappers.

Bernadotte

Both my mothers father and my fathers mother are rumored to descend from the Royal House of Bernadotte. See my family tree. Jean Baptiste Jules Bernadotte was born as a commoner. He started hes carrier as a regular soldier and during Napolean Wars he became Marshal of the Empire (Marshal of France) and Sovereign Prince of Pontecorvo and later became elected as king of Sweden and as Swedish king he conquered Norway. The House of Bernadotte is the only Royal House that was created during Napoleon era that still rules.

My coat of arms was created in 2004 and the image bellow is a scan from the magazine Vapenbilden 60 where it was first published.

The coat of arms was designed by Ronny Andersen, who is the Royal Danish courts armspainter, and Jesper Wasling from Svenska Heraldiska Föreningen.
