Nordic Brothers


Nordic Brothers

Sweden and Denmark have fought each other for as long as anyone can remember and holds the record for most wars fought between them. Yes, we even beat the two big enemies of Europe, England and France.
So is it any wonder we make fun of each other today? Heck, it’s a miracle we even refer to each other as “Nordic brothers”. :XD:

And what did we fight over? Well, mainly Norway, occasionally Scania, and every now an then Denmark tried to take over Sweden. Fun times, fun times.

I'm pretty sure that in 1658 and 1659 WE were the ones who tried to take over YOU, dude...

Not really. According to the travelling 9th century merchant Wulfstan, Blekinge along with Möre, Öland and Gotland all belonged to the Swedes. Blekinge only became Danish in the 13th century.

Remember when European borders were redrawn every second week or so, because a couple of countries had a quick skirmish? Not happening anymore. Why is that? It was fun.

It's funny how everybody only seems to remember that Scania was part of Denmark once, (both Danes and Swedes) but everybody seem to have forgotten that both Bleking and Halland was once just as Danish as Skåne.

is it because of similar thoughts they fought non-stop about, or had it just become an love-hate tradition? they have so much to fight about, but so much to don't to.

why does it seem it always ended up in the same conclusion?

@00joe01 I'm with you on this! On the surface we may have differences but beneath we're very alike: we care for the same things, have the same standards and ethics and our views on life are very similar. Plus we sort of grew up together, which makes us close siblings, and everyone knows that some siblings fight like mad. All. The. Time. Doesn't mean we don't love each other :D

We have been fighting a few....well..many times but deep down in our hearts we love each other as much as possible. I see this comic as a sign of our öresundic relationship. That we are fighting is just a sign for undead love. Sweden + Denmark = Forever ❤️
