King Oscar II

King Oscar II in a Norwegian uniformA century and a year ago today, Oscar II, King of Sweden and formerly King of Norway, passed on from this world.

King Oscar II abdicated the throne of St. Olav on October 26, 1905. He heroically never accepted the ambitions of the Norwegian politicos to have all the power for themselves.

May His Late Majesty continue to rest in peace.
