About Princess Ragnhild, Mrs. Lorentzen

  • Princess Ragnhild, Mrs Lorentzen (Ragnhild Alexandra; 9 June 1930 – 16 September 2012), was the eldest child of King Olav V of Norway and Princess Märtha of Sweden.
  • She was the older sister of King Harald V and Princess Astrid.
  • She was the first royal to have been born in Norway since the middle ages.
  • In 1953 she married the industrialist Erling Lorentzen, a member of the Lorentzen family of shipping magnates.
  • In the same year they moved to Brazil, where her husband was an industrialist and a main owner of Aracruz Celulose.
  • She lived in Brazil until her death 59 years later. Although she was the King's eldest child, she was never in the line of succession to the Norwegian throne, owing to Norway's law of agnatic succession.
  • She was, however, 17th in the line of succession to the British throne at the time of her birth and remained one of the first hundred people in that line of succession for her entire life.
