Richeza of Denmark was Queen Consort of Sweden from 1210 to 1216 as the wife of King Eric X. When she arrived at the Swedish court, she expressed her surprise that she was expected to ride and not travel by carriage, as she had been used to in Denmark.

On June 6, 1654, in a public ceremony, Queen Christina abdicated the throne of Sweden. The members of her council removed her regalia. However, Count Per Brahe, who was supposed to remove her crown, could not bring himself to do it. Christina removed the crown herself.

Very interesting!  I wonder how the monarch who succeeded her felt about Per Brahe's presumed intense loyalty to her.  I also wonder if Per Brahe has anything to do with Tycho Brahe, famed astronomer.   Thinking

Off to research more about this, including why she abdicated!  Thanks, Cyril!   Beer

One of the favorite pastimes of King Adolphus Frederick, who reigned 1751 to 1771, was to make snuffboxes.

I wonder who the woman standing in the centre is? It looks like she is wearing the aquamarine kokoshnik, but I am unsure when that tiara was created, nor if the woman in question would have acces to it.

The Aquamarine Kokosnik came from the collection of Princess Margaret of Connaught, who married the future King Gustaf VI Adolf.
