Victoria of Baden

Victoria of Baden (August 7, 1862 - April 4, 1930) was the daughter of Grand Duke Frederick I of Baden, and his wife, Louise of Prussia, who was, in her turn, the daughter of Kaiser Wilhelm I of Germany. Victoria was also great-granddaughter (by her paternal grandmother) of King Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden.

Victoria was the most prominent of the queens of Sweden.

She was born at the castle in Karlsruhe in Germany, and married, on September 20, 1881, to Prince Gustav Bernadotte of Sweden, who became King Gustav V of Sweden.
