Torpa Castle, Ancestors and Dogs

I showed Torpa Castle to a new aquintance yesterday and took a picture by the portrait of my ancestor, Gustav Vasa.

He lived in the 16th century and was the first king of a unified Sweden. He was a noble man who fought our Danish rule and took the power. Since he wasn't of royal blood he had a hell of a time finding a suitable wife. Finally a German princess, Katarina af Sachsen-Lauenburg took the bait. Their first and only son, Erik, is then next in line and then and so forth ....

When at home again I was met by love of the purest form by my furball.

But I certainly need some beauty sleep .....
