@JanValentine Denmark's conversion was also pretty peaceful, at least the initiateing moves. The king decided he would be Christian (we have a story about a monk walking over fiery coals or some such) and lo and behold, his followers followed his example to a certain degree. Of course, later on, you get the whole "be Christian or burn at the stake). ...It was easier to control a christian population than one following a plethora of gods.
