14: Kristina of Sweden, part one

Kristina of Sweden, like her distant ancestress Princess Cecilia of Sweden, wasn’t going to let being a Swedish Royal get in the way of her just vibing out and doing wtf she wanted.In part one, we learn about her parents, the non-typical manner in which she was brought up, and the first years of her reign. We also talk a bit about her gender identity and the longstanding rumours that she may have had intersex traits.
