King Gustav V of Sweden, or Gustaf V (1858 - 1950), Swedish monarch from 1907 to 1950. He married Princess Victoria of Baden on September 20, 1881. She was the granddaughter of Sofia of Sweden, and her marriage to Gustav V united the reigning Bernadotte dynasty with the former royal house of Vasa.
During a series of scandals in the 1950s known as the Haijby affair, which was in turn a continuation of the Kejne affair, it came to public knowledge that the king was, and had always been bisexual. This is said to have "made virtually no difference to his marriage."
