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?

Denmark has never ruled over either Finland or Sweden. Yes we all were a part of the Kalmarunion...but that does not mean that Denmark ever ruled over Sweden.... I don't know why so many Danish people believe that. The Kalmarunion was a union, that would be just as idiotic as saying that North Dakota is ruling Texas, and California because they are in the same union (united states).

Hello, must remember that Sweden and Finland has long common history, because Finland was nearly 700-hundred years (1100 - 1809) east part of Swedish Kingdom.
In that period Sweden/Finland had common army.The Swedish army created Finnish-speaking and Swedish-speaking units. For example in thirty years war, The Hakkapeliittas were a unit of Finnish cavalry men serving under Sweden. They earned a reputation as brave and brutal warriors along with their famous cry: Hakkaa paalle or hack them down. A cry which brought fear and their name. The men were equipped and trained the same way as Swedish-speaking units and had roughly the same level of respect and prestige - although at times the Finnish soldiers were considred hardier and more suited to difficult tasks. Several of Sweden's enemies considered the Finnish-speakers as semi-barbarion and vicous, even demonic in battle. For example my hometown, there is statue "hakkapeliittas homecoming" (all links under ). So, i can say, that Finland still remember our (Sweden/Finland) common warhistory.

Nice to see that Sweden and Finland are united again. As you can see "under" there are plans to join some parts f both countrys army.
So, this comics can also show what is possible going to happen in the future. :)

Hey now, You forgot England!.. or at least part of him. The Daneslaw was of major importance to the establishment of a unified england. It was perhaps even more important than the later Norman invasions. We may think of "english" kings going back to Alfred the great but it was truely Canute, a dane, Who did most to unite the 7 other kingdoms that claimed to be england.

Oh look! Sweden and Finland united to fight against a threat bigger than their resentment for each other. Kinda cool.
