Re: Private manís daughter
Prince Oscar a son of Oscar II and Sofia of Nassau married Ebba Munck af Fulkila. She was part of the Swedish nobility and a lady in waiting at court. He did loose his succession rights and his royal title by marrying her. His maternal uncle the grand duke of Luxembourg gave them the official titles of prince and princess Bernadotte and the hereditary title count af Wisborg for their offspring.
So i guess that answers your question at least in the late 19th century. Several princes married commoners but not noble women so we don't really know how the rules might have been stretched or adapted if some of them had opted for women of the Swedish nobility.
You haven't answered my question.
Could a swedish royal (Bertil f.i.) marry a swedish baroness and remain in line to the throne succession or would she be considered a private man's daughter as she was a non-royal ?
Until the second marriage of crown prince Gustav Adolf to lady Louise Mountbatten the line was seen as having to marry a Royal. Lady Louise was technically in line of succession for the crown of the UK and a born princess of Battenberg. The marriages of King Carl Gustav and his uncle Bertil were both to foreign commoners.
Victoria and Carl Philip are the first two Swedish Royals to marry a Swedish commoner and retain their rights of succession under the new rules.
King Carl Gustaf could marry whomever he wanted. The restrictions didn't apply to the King.
