William CAREY.William married Mary BOLEYN BULLYN.

Mary BOLEYN BULLYN [Parents] was born in 1504 in Of Chilton Folist, Wiltshire, England. She died on 19 Jul 1534. She married William CAREY.

In 1997 Anthony Hoskins published an interesting and well written paper in Genealogists’ Magazine 25 (1997): 345–352, in which he advanced the theory that King Henry VIII may have been the father of
Mary Boleyn’s two Carey children. These children have traditionally been assigned as the product of Mary Boleyn's lawful marriage to William Carey, Esquire, which marriage took place in 1520. The chief
piece of evidence cited by Hoskins to support this theory consists of a salacious piece of second hand gossip uttered by John Hale, vicar of Isleworth, to the Council in April 1535. Hale was summarily executed two weeks later at Tyburn for denying the king’s supremacy, not for his accusation of bastardy against the king. While Hoskins terms his argument “a powerful case,” he failed to present any serious evidence that supports his “ineluctable conclusion” that the Careys “must have been the king’s children.”

While it is true that the king by his own admission had an affair at some point with Mary Boleyn, there appears to be no surviving evidence to indicate exactly when their liaison occurred [see Jasper Ridley, Henry VIII (1985): 152 who plainly states “Here again there is no record of when the affair with Mary Boleyn began;” also Alison Weir, The Six Wives of Henry VIII (2000): 133 (“… the affair was conducted discreetely, and for this reason it is impossible to pinpoint when it began or ended.”)]. More importantly, there is no indication in any known contemporary record which suggests that either the king or his successors at any time acknowledged the two Carey children as the king’s issue. For example, when Queen Elizabeth I (the daughter of King Henry VIII) mentioned Mary Boleyn’s son, Henry Carey, in a letter dated 1579, she referred to him as “our cousin of Hunsdon,” not as her brother [see Boyd, Cal. of the State Papers rel. to Scotland & Mary, Queen of Scots 5 (1907): 358–360]. Mary Boleyn’s other child, Katherine Carey, Lady Knollys, was similarly styled “kinswoman and good servant” [not sister] of Queen Elizabeth I in a letter written in 1569 by Nicholas White [see Strickland, Letters of Mary, Queen of Scots 2 (1848): 385–390].

For what it is worth, the liaison between Mary Boleyn and King Henry
VIII has been widely dated by one recent historian, Eric Ives, as
either the 1510s or early 1520s [see Eric Ives, The Life & Death of
Anne Boleyn (2004): 15]. In slim support of the latter date, there
exists the transcript of contemporary letter written in 1533 by Dr.
Pedro Ortiz, the Spanish theologian who was sent to Rome to defend the
interests of King Henry VIII’s first wife, Queen Katherine of Aragón.
Dr Ortiz wrote the Empress that King Henry VIII had previously
requested a dispensation from his Holiness to marry Anne Boleyn due to
the “affinity between them on account of his having committed adultery
with her sister.” [see Friedmann, Anne Boleyn: A Chapter of English
History, 1527–1536 2 (1884): 325, citing British Museum, Add. MSS.
28,585, fol. 217]. While the meaning of the word, adultery, as used
by Dr. Ortiz would have been carnal knowledge with a married woman,
the dispensation requested back in 1528 would not have involved the
marital status of Mary Boleyn at all; rather, the dispensation would
simply have stated that a potential affinity existed in the 1st degree
due to the king’s carnal knowledge of two sisters, one being his
former mistress, the other being his intended second wife. Indeed, as
Friedmann notes, up to this time canon law had been in force; and, in
that law, no difference was made between legitimate and illegitimate
intercourse [Friedmann, ibid., 326]. While the wording of Dr. Ortiz’s
letter suggests that that he had knowledge that Mary Boleyn was
married when the affair with King Henry VIII occurred, Dr. Ortiz being
a foreigner in the employ of the Emperor mitigates the usefulness of
this piece of evidence in dating Mary Boleyn’s affair with the king.
In fact, the historian James Farge has noted that the letters of Dr.
Ortiz “often became nothing more than the recounting of gossip” [see
James Farge, Biographical Reg. of Paris Doctors of Theology, 1500–1536
(Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies, Subsidia Mediaeval 10)
(1980): 352].

Thus, the argument that King Henry VIII fathered Mary Boleyn's two
Carey children remains at best a dubious theory whose merits lack
sufficient evidence to reach any satisfactory conclusion.

Further facts: Victoria became a crown princess on January 1st, 1980, after the law changed. Family and friends use to call her 'Ojja', that is how her brother Carl Philip called her when he was too small to say 'Victoria'. Victoria is dyslectic.

Crown Princess Victoria, Victoria Ingrid Alice Désirée of Sweden, Duchess of Västergötland, is the first born child and heir of King Carl XVI Gustav of Sweden. She was born as a Royal Princess on July 14, 1977, however constitutional reform created her Crown Princess and heiress apparent to the Swedish throne on January 1, 1980.

The old principle of agnatic primogeniture, which meant that the throne was inherited by the eldest male child of the preceding monarch, was replaced by the principle of full cognatic primogeniture. This meant that the throne would be inherited by the eldest child without regard to sex, and Sweden was the first country to adopt it. King Carl XVI Gustav himself, born in 1946, had been the fifth child with four older sisters.
  M ii Prince Carl Philip OF SWEDEN was born on 13 May 1979 in Stockholm, Sweden.
  F iii Princess Madeleine OF SWEDEN was born on 10 Jun 1982 in Drottingholm Palace.
