Carl Bildt

Carl Bildt is a swedish politician.

Currently Carl Bildt is serving as the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Sweden.

Background

  • Ethnicity: Belongs to an old Norwegian-Danish-Swedish noble family traditionally domiciled in Bohus county.

  • Carl Bildt was born in Halmstad, Halland, in an old noble family of Norwegian-Danish-Swedish origin.

    Many members of the Bildt family had chosen politics as a career, and some of them had important

    positions in Swedish government. For example, Carl’s great-great-grandfather, Baron Gillis Bildt, served as Prime Minister a century ago, he was a diplomat and had the title of Marshal of the Kingdom of Sweden.

  • Education

    • While studying at Stockholm University, Bildt was against the occupation of the Student Union Building in 1968 and was one of the co-founders of Borgerliga Studenter – Opposition '68 later the same year, and served as chairman of the FMSF Confederation of Swedish Conservative and Liberal Students, a centre-right student organisation, in the early 1970s.

    Career

    • Carl Bildt has had a successful political career, holding different political posts in different periods of his

      life. On the 6th of October, 2006, Carl Bildt was appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs in the newly formed government led

      by Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. This move was somewhat surprising as Bildt had already served as both Prime Minister and the Moderate Party leader,besides previously there were some conflicts between Bildt and Reinfeldt.
