Carl Gustaf Oscar Fredrik Christian, Prince Bernadotte (10 January 1911 – 27 June 2003), originally Prince Carl, Duke of Östergötland, was the youngest child and only son of Prince Carl of Sweden and Princess Ingeborg of Denmark.
To distinguish himself from his father, he was widely known as Carl Junior.
She was the daughter of one Count von Rosen and ex-wife of another Count von Rosen.
Bernadotte's brother-in-law, King Leopold III of Belgium, conferred upon him the title Prince Bernadotte in the Belgian nobility on the same date, with the right to a comital title for his male-line descendants.
He had one daughter, called Countess Madeleine Berndotte (b.
Stockholm, 8 October 1938) and divorced Elsa in 1951.
He married Ann Margareta Larsson (1921–1975) at Danderyd, Sweden, on 1 November 1954. His third and final marriage was held at the Embassy of Sweden in Rabat, Morocco, on 8 June 1978 to Kristine Rivelsrud.
Bernadotte died at age 92 on 27 June 2003 in Málaga, Spain.
His widow, Princess Kristine Bernadotte, died at their home at Villa Capricornio in Benalmadena, Spain, on 4 November 2014 at the age of 82, without issue.
Carl Bernadotte was at the center of the Huseby scandal that occurred in the late 1950s in Sweden amidst a great deal of publicity.
Bernadotte and other suspects had gained the trust of Florence Stephens, a wealthy elderly heiress of a large estate near Växjö in southern Sweden.
A complex set of criminal transactions led to the ruin of Stephens and brought Bernadotte and the others to court.
Bernadotte was acquitted, in spite of his full confession – it was considered that he had no criminal intent.
