Marriage with Brita - yearEdit

There is a problem here and in article Brita Persdotter Karth:

  • if he is in Moscow in 1599 for marriage with Ksenia Godunova, he should be unmarried at this time
  • russian sources - and Conrad Bussow - called her "he took in Moscow his lover, some Ekaterina, with her husband German inkeeper Christopher Kather from Danzig, and prince's illegitimate children" - so Gustav was with her, but not by law. Also here is a note, that tsar Boris Godunov separated Gustav with his daugher's rival, and send him in exile alone.
  • he couldn't married with Brita in Kashin in 1594, because he's in Kashin only after Vasili IV of Russia's coronation - 1606. In 1594 he was still in Europe. So if they get married - only in Russia after 1599, and if in Kashin - only after 1606, when all his living conditions were moderated, but not in Uglich and Yaroslavl.

Yes indeed, there is problem, but this is simply due to the fact that Brita Persdotter Karth is a myth created by wishful thinking (and perhaps even forged documents) in the 18th century. See my posting at Talk:Brita Persdotter Karth.
I have begun correcting the articles on Gustav and Brita in the Swedish version of Wikipedia and will try to fix the English ones as well in due time. /FredrikT (talk) 06:41, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
