Two royal crowns belonging to King Charles IX of Sweden and his wife Christina of Holstein-Gottorp, as well as a royal orb, have been from Strängnäs Cathedral yesterday afternoon. The two crowns were actually burial crowns and were interred with the King and Queen until they were exhumed and put on display. King Charles IX reigned from 1604 until his death in 1611. His wife survived him until 1625. They had three surviving children together, including King Gustav II Adolf of Sweden.
SVT police spokesperson Thomas Agnevik said: “I have talked to a person at the county administrative board that says that it is not possible to put an economic value on this, these are invaluable objects of national interest”.
