@Nisse_Hult Um... Have you read the Saga's? I don't know about Sweden, but over here there were blood-feuds, and lots of them. I'm honestly flabbergasted that there are any of us left, out ancestors fought that much. Men killed each other over the smallest slight; cheating in a horse fight, sitting in the wrong place at a feast, pure pride, you name it. Anything that was considered offensive might lead to a blood-feud.
Sure when assembled people tried, and succeeded in settling these feuds, but they still happened, and because these assembly's were only held once a year they could go on for a while, specially if they weren't willing to settle.
