Prince Gustaf, Duke of Uppland

Prince Gustaf of Sweden and Norway, Duke of Uppland (18 June 1827, Haga Palace, Stockholm – 24 September 1852, Kristiania, Norway) was the second son of Oscar I of Sweden and Josephine of Leuchtenberg.

Prince Gustaf was a trained musician and composer. In Sweden, he is remembered for having written a couple of well-known songs. His The Student Song (Studentsången) is traditionally sung at the graduation festivities for gymnasium students, and his Spring Song (Vårsång) is often performed by men's chorus on Walpurgis night.

From 1844 until his death in 1852, Gustaf was second-in-line to the Swedish and Norwegian thrones, during most of his father's reign.
