Scandinavia and the World


Iceland is great with kids. :D

The first Europeans to find America was Icelandic Vikings, and they managed to stay alive for some time before they got killed by the Indians and the winters. They called the land they found Vinland.

The original settlers on Greenland didn’t last long either.

@njnothere Canada has Vinland because the colony was located in northern Newfoundland. When the Medieval Warm Period ended and it was too cold, everyone in Vinland and Greenland bounced back to Iceland.

Have you been watching Hetalia? Haha. And yes, given that most Icelanders have Norwegians ancestors, you could look at him like Norways brother.

Aww startled demon is adorable! I wonder if the kids like Iceland's demons? Also, since I remember something about Iceland being Norway's brother... That makes him Kven's uncle, right?

Also "Native Americans" would be more accurate. Pretty sure India is on the other side of the planet :P
