'RUN FOR YOUR LIFE'
"THE INHUMAN PREDICAMENT"
When Paul Bryan introduced his table companion to his old friend Ramon de Vega, he stumbled hesitantly over her name: "Ingrid... Svenska."
Ramon recognized her, however. And Paul's use of a code name to serve as an alias probably couldn't fool anybody. Svenska is the native language of Sweden and parts of Finland. And as we learned that Ingrid was a princess in one of Europe's last ruling monarchies, I think it's safe to say that she was a member of Sweden's Royal Family... if only in Toobworld.
Princess Ingrid was probably a cousin, a member of the "kungliga familjen" - part of the extended family not recognized as royal by the government and who does not carry any official duties for the monarchy. Nevertheless, Princess Ingrid had to observe the state rules of protocol which dictated her life.
Princess Ingrid is not the first fictional character in Toobworld related to actual people from the Real World. Megan Russert (Tim Russert), Vera Gorman (Art Carney), and Sherlock Holmes (Horace and Claude Joseph Vernet) are some of the others who hold that distinction.
But she may be the first to have a modern royal connection and not be from an alternate TV dimension.....
