The new Swedish Princess Leonore is also now the Duchess of Gotland. Her predecessor was Prince Oscar Carl August Bernadotte, Count of Wisborg (Drottningholm, 15 November 1859 – Stockholm, 4 October 1953), son of King Oscar II and Queen Sofia of Sweden. He married Ebba Munck af Fulkila (Jönköping, 15 March 1858 – Stockholm, 16 October 1946), who was a noblewoman, but not Royal. So he gave up his title and place in the succession line to marry her. They had five children, among them Count Folke Bernadotte af Wisborf, whos wife Estelle is rumoured to be the namesake of Leonore’s cousin Princess Estelle.
