Richard Bagge, the Swedish-Norwegian Consulate General to Quebec married Lily Alette Schwartz, the daughter of Richard Bagge's predecessor, in 1902 in Quebec, Canada. Richard and Lily travelled west through the Rocky Mountains to Vancouver and Victoria on their honeymoon. In 1905, Richard Bagge was transfered to Hamburg, Germany as Swedish Consulate General and in 1908, he was transfered to Shanghai, China. Richard Bagge died in Shanghai in 1910 from dysentry and Lily and their son Kenty travelled to Sweden, settling in Saltsjöbaden in 1912. Kenty Bagge joined the Swedish diplomatic service and retained his Canadian citizenship until 1963, when he renounced his Canadian citizenship in order to accept the appointment of Swedish Ambassador to Canada in Ottawa, Ontario.
