Entrance exhibition in Kulturhuset: 10 Swedish Queens

Kulturhuset, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

In a selection by the historian Karin Tegenborg Falkdalen, two queens per century have been selected partly to highlight them from the shadows and to show their influence during the time they worked.

The queens represent a broad period from the 16th century when Margareta Leijonhufvud, Gustav Vasa's second wife, was queen when Sweden became a hereditary kingdom in 1544 to queen to Queen Louise who four hundred years later was called Sweden's first democratic queen. Several of the queens' relationships (mothers-in-law-daughters-in-law) have also had a political dimension. Among others Hedvig Eleonora of Holstein-Gottorp and Ulrika Eleonora of Denmark, as well as Lovisa Ulrika of Prussia and Sofia Magdalena of Denmark. Two of the queens are especially known for their cultural interest, (Hedvig Eleonora and Lovisa Ulrika) which they also used to strengthen the monarchy, but several queens have been politically committed toexample Queen Victoria. Three of the queens have served as role models for future queens, Margareta Leijonhufvud, Ulrika Eleonora the Elder and Josefina during the 19th century, have all formed a kind of "queen school".

The exhibition takes place in Kulturhuset's entrance: 8 October - 8 November
