They grow up so fast


They grow up so fast

If only Norway and Sweden had known how much trouble Denmark was going to be when he grew up...

Because Denmark is made of sand from Norway, that means we have no natural resources. That is the main reason why Denmark went crazy and was so obsessed with taking over the other Nordic countries.

And you have to be impressed. Look up Scandinavia on a map. Can you even imagine that the tiny little Denmark ended up ruling over Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Greenland, The Faroe Islands and even part of Germany?

@Tudpool_ Knud den Store (Cnut the Great) ruled the North Sea Empire from 1016-1035, and in this empire was countries such as Denmark, Norway, parts of Sweden and, finally, England.

@Andersen3004 No they had settlers there after a while but it was mainly just going there to pillage. I don't think it was ever rules by denmark.

History is obviously not you strong point :P Denmark has "ruled" over Sweden exactly once. In the 11th century when Canute The Great was king over "Denmark, England, Norway and SOME of the Swedes." Thats it. And modern historians are also suggesting that those Swedes were Vikings from Östergötland who had served in Canutes bodyguard "Tingaliden" and then voluntarily acknowledged Canute as their king. All phear the glorious Danish Empire :P

@Svamlet well danes have been used to bee "on the run" in most of our wars, and i admit sweden has been close to winning it all, for all these swedish officers i think denmark/norway has Peter Tordenskjold, sweden was VERY agressive and when they got too far the dutch british or prussian interfered, they simply no want no superpower in the baltic sea :P that sadly goes for denmark too :( but that makes for lots o awesome history books we can read nowadays ^^ and if it werent for dem british i wonder how the maps of scandinavia would look like today ;)

Alright, more power to you. Although i wager you looked a whole lot less "awesome" when you were set on the run by Swedish Warriors like Karl Knutsson Bonde, Gustav Vasa and Engelbrekt Engelbrektsson =)
