Re: King Carl XV of Sweden and Norway
I know what you mean... And his father, Oscar I, suffered from that decease as well.
Thanks Robert. From what Iíve read about him it wouldnít surprise me if the second cause of death you mentioned was the true cause of his death.
Iíve read that King Carl XV of Sweden and Norway died at the age of 46 but I cannot find any information on how he died. Can anyone tell me? Thanks!
Officially, he died of intestinal tuberculosis , but it is possible that the real cause of death was intestinal syphilis.
