The monument to Charles XV

29 Aug

Like I mentioned in an earlier post, Stockholm is full of monuments to our Kings. One of the less known Kings is Charles XV. He was the third regent in the House of Bernadotte and reigned Sweden and Norway (as Charles IV) from 1859 to 1872. He was succeeded by his younger brother Oscar II. This statue, made by Gustaf Malmqvist, can be spotted at Djurgården close to the Biological Museum and Skansen.
