Visiting a village school one day, King Oscar II of Sweden asked the pupils to name the greatest kings of Sweden. The answers were unanimous: Gustavus Vasa, Gustavus Adolphus, Charles X. Then the teacher leaned over to one little boy and whispered something in his ear.
“And King Oscar,” volunteered the child.
“Really? And what has King Oscar done thats so remarkable?” asked the king.
“I--I--I dont know,” stammered the unhappy child.
“Thats all right,” said the king. “Neither do I.”
