Dedicatee: King Carl XIV Johan of Sweden (1764-1844). Carl XIV Johan's original name was Jean-Baptiste-Jules Bernadotte. Despite the run-ins between Carl Johan and the Norwegian parliament (Storting), especially in 1821 and 1836, Carl Johan gradually became very popular in Norway. When he died in 1844, at the age of 81, he was succeeded by his only son, Oscar I.
