Re: Swedish Dukedoms
No they don´t. In the days of king Gustav Vasa 16-17th centuries) and his sons the royal dukes had incomes from ther duchies. When king Gustaf III reinvented royal dukedoms for his brothers (1770ies) they were just honorific titles and have remaind as such.
In Sweden, do various members of the royal family receive an appanage from their respective dukedoms/duchies, e.g., CP Victoria, Duchess of Västergötland, etc.?
