Fact of the Day: King Carl

Sweden has had many Kings named Carl, though the first King to use the name was Carl VII. His six predecessors actually existed only in myth.

A strange way to track the kings but....guess it worked for them.
Must tell you that as much as I love Jimmy Buffett, I had to google PARROTHEAD to see what bloggers were talking about. Good grief...I am sooo out of it.
