Re: Prince Bernadotte
It seems likely that future descendants of Prince Carl Philipís sons will be [no title] GIVEN NAME Bernadotte while in Denmark future descendants of for example Princes Joachim and Nikolai will probably be Count/Countess GIVEN NAME de Monpezat. But what, one wonders, will happen in Norway regarding eventual descendants of Prince Sverre Magnus - there is no nobility in Norway and the sovereign cannot grant titles so his eventual descendants will probably be [no title] GIVEN NAME followed by FAMILY NAME but what family name? Glucksburg? Oldenburg? Norge?
One can argue, cf. the 1825 patent, that teh family name of the Norwegian Royal Family is GlŁcksburg, even if the members don't normally use it. So that is one choice for the possible children of Prince Sverre Magnus. The act concerning personal names give so many options, though. They could take the mother's name, for instance, or create a new name, like Skaugum (provided that it is free to use when the time comes).
