Persson-PersdotterEdit

The title should be changed to Persdotter, not Persson; until the mid 19th century, this name variation wasnot fixed, as it is now, but women was named Persdotter, wich means Daughter of Per, nad men Persson, wich means Son of Per. But perhaps just the name Brita Karth is best! --85.226.235.231 (talk) 14:37, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

That is true. I hope it will be changed. --85.226.235.160 (talk) 12:30, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

A mythEdit

Brita Karth probably never existed and definitely had no children with prince Gustav. This story was made up in the 18th century by baron Adolf Ludvig Stierneld who tried to prove that he himsdelf was a decendant of the house of Vasa. Serious historians refuted the story about Brita already in the late 19th century and it is given absolutely no credability in modern works. The article - if kept - should be reworked accordingly. /FredrikT (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 19:45, 8 July 2009 (UTC).

The article is now rewritten according to what present-day historians think. /FredrikT (talk) 18:07, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
