    Swedish Royal Jewels Missing After Daring Theft (by Somali the Princess Took into Her Home)

    http://www.thelocal.se/41442/20120614/

    A 19-year-old man has admitted to the theft of over 850,000 kronor ($120,675) worth of royal jewels that were taken from Princess Christina’s apartment near the Royal Palace over the past two months.

    The thief, a 19-year-old friend of the family, confessed to the theft soon after, wrote the Aftonbladet newspaper.

    It is alleged that he sold the majority of the jewels for 9,000 kronor to two marijuana dealers.

    He also reportedly threw a tiara worth 350,000 kronor off a Stockholm bridge into the water below.

    The jewellery belonged to Princess Christina, the 68-year-old youngest sister of Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf.

    The collection contained treasures inherited from her mother, Princess Sibylla, and Gustav VI Adolf, the previous king of Sweden.

    It is alleged that the contents also included golden rings and bracelets, as well as gifts from the ex-emperor of Ethiopia - Haile Selassie.

    The discovery of the missing treasure was made by Tord Magnuson, the husband of the princess.

    When Magnuson confronted the teenager, the 19-year-old confessed to the crime immediately, wrote the paper.

    The 19-year-old also told how he stole the 350,000 kronor tiara back in mid-May during a party at the palace, and then threw it into the water off the Riksbron Bridge in Stockholm.

    Divers on Wednesday searched for the sunken jewels to no avail, with Aftonbladet reporting that only wallets, false teeth and one eel have been found so far.

    The 19-year-old, who came to Sweden as a refugee in 2010, had lived with the royal couple, and Magnuson had acted as his mentor.

    The two became close friends, with Princess Christina even referring to the man as “the child of the house”.

    It is alleged that he stole the key to the safe back in April and planned to blame the housecleaner for the thefts.

    Charges of aggravated theft have been filed against the man.

    The 19-year-old has given descriptions to police of the two men who bought the jewels, but neither has been identified as yet.
    What breathtaking stupidity on the part of the princess to think she could keep a pet Somali without it coming back to haunt her.

    Just can't trust them. This 19-year-old refugee massively abused the generosity of the Swedish aristocrats who took him in. And for what? To buy cannabis! I wonder where this jewel-stealing, cannabis-smoking refugee came from.

    Well, yes. You'd think that with all the crime committed in Sweden by foreign immigrants and refugees they would learn not to trust them. But, alas, it seems not with some indigenous Swedish people.

    But how "swedish" is Princess Christina? Citizen yes, but how much of her ancestry is actually swedish? The present swedish royal family seems historically to have had an aversion to marrying swedes.

    The Law and Justice have only seldom anything to do with one another. At the most they wave at each other when they pass one another on the street.
    Niemals vergessen. Niemals vergeben.

    a tangent to the OP, but perhaps an interesting one...

    Prior to the end of the German Empire, the legacy of the many sovereign principalities meant that Germany's noble families supplied many of the suitable marriage partner candidates for the next generation of European royalty.

    How "British" or "English" are the royal family of the UK? If counting from an Ancestry.COM type perspective, then hardly at all; they are German, as it is with most royals & former royals.

    The legacy of maintaining the record of the purebrededness of Europe's highest nobility, tracked in Germany, was considered a threat to Soviet interests, and so was a primary target for Soviet restructuring of Europe & Germany:
