Geocache Description:

Monumentet i Kvidinge

Platsen där monumentet står var under 17- och 1800 talet övningsfält för Norra Skåne Kavalleriregemente.Övningsfältet kallades Kvidinge Hed och här var ibland upp till 15000 soldater samlade för övningar.
Monumentet restes till minne av kronprins Karl-August, som 1810 vid inspektion av trupperna, föll av sin häst och dog (troligtvis på grund av hjärtsvikt). Efter denna händelse börjar Bernadotternas era i Sverige.

The Monument is situated on the training area for the "Norra Skånes Kavalleriregemente". The training area was called Kvidinge Hed and sometimes 15000 soldiers were assembled for exercises and maneuvres.
It was erected in memory of Crown Prince Karl-August who fell of his horse and died during a Troop Review in 1810. He probably succumbed to a heart failure. He was succeeded by the still reigning Bernadottes.
