Abstract

On January 21, 1889, King Oscar II turned 60. On the same day the king announced the winner of the mathematics prize that had been established in his name. All treatises had been submitted anonymously, supplied with a title and an envelope containing the author’s name. The envelopes were now opened with great ceremony. The winner was Henri Poincaré.
