Christina Queen of Sweden

Maria became hysterical afterward and grieved so much that she kept her husband’s body unburied for 18 months just so she could still see and touch him. She made Christina sleep under a golden casket that held her father’s head. It is amazing to learn that Christina grew up as a normal woman and even became Queen of Sweden.
