And about 95% inaccurate.  Trond Noren Isaksen is an historian who has written about CP Martha and the war and Roosevelt.  He was very disappointed by the TV show.

She was highly respected, not only by the Norwegian people, but also by a lot of Norwegian-Americans as well. Both my youngest sister and my youngest daughter were named for her.

That's really neat!  Would you be interested in sharing why she's so respected?  I'm happy to google her...not asking you to be my wikipedia!  Laugh bounce but I'd be really interested in hearing why she resonates so much with you!

I think it was her whole-hearted embrace of Norway and the Norwegian people. Also, Queen Maud had died in 1938, so Martha was the sole female presence in the Norwegian royal family during the dreadful war years other than her daughters, who were children, of course.

That is indeed a lovely legacy and one worth honoring!

For a wedding gift from her in-laws, the Crown Prince and Princess of Denmark, Princess Martha received a very fine Diamond Riviere-Diamond Collet Necklace with thirty-eight solitaire diamonds.
