@Bruskork, true, though the Kalmar union was effectively dominated by Denmark. Which was the reason that Sweden began freeing themselves almost immediately after they had joined. Norway probably would have left too, but the plague had decimated the population and simply didn't have the strength. But yes, this is obviously an oversimplification and in the aftermath of the death of Cnut the Great was for a while the strongest Scandinavian power.
