Why did the Kalmar Union and Denmark-Norway Collapse?

Why did the Kalmar Union and Denmark-Norway Collapse?

Despite each having their own cultures and people, and now being entirely independent of each other, the three Nordic nations, in particular, have a curiously intertwined history. But why exactly did they end up united? What happened to the Kalmar Union that would eventually be succeeded by Denmark-Norway? And why would Denmark-Norway eventually collapse?…

  1. Norwegians still wish see the entirety of their country free and to be reunited with the rest of their countrymen and lands, that they love very much ๐Ÿ™‚

    (Jemtland, Herjedalen, Idre, Serna, Bรฅhuslen, Hjaltland/Shetland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands) ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Norway pause Denmark pause and Sweden I say this very slowly because of pause dumb (or drunk) people. Norway pause Denmark pause and Sweden see how I repeat that? are pause also called pause (so you can think of the correct geographic name and convince yourself that you arren't pause that dumb or drunk) pause answer Scandinavia.

  3. Gustav Vasa put his foot down and that was it! The collapse of the Kalmar Union was followed by a very long period of peace! Sweden and Denmark never went to war against each other again for many many many years in something many would call Pax Danskjรคvlar. It would be nearly a century before war broke out again. Not really a whole century, it was more like many many decades! It was 19 years of peace before war broke out again. 19 years is almost two decades? And two decades is almost like "many decades" if you lie about it?
    That war was the war that ended all wars forever between Sweden and Denmark!
    It's true if you don't count the other 10+ wars we had with the danes after the first one. Soo much peace!

  4. "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago and the next best time is now" I consider this to be best motivational quote I've heard in a very long time. But motivational quotes are useless if you don't practice what you preach*

  5. Interestingly, Denmark did NOT hand over "all of Norway" to Sweden, since Iceland, Faroe Islands and Greenland technically were part of Norway. Hence why Greenland and Faroe Islands are still Danish.

  6. The video mentions it, but as a Swede I feel like it understates the effects of what we call Stockholms Bloodbath had, where who we call Christian Tyrant executed our nobles. Many of them liked. It is thought of as an irreparable overstep and for us it more than anything else turned the Danes into villains

  7. Only Denmark, Norway and Sweden are scandinavian and the northern part of Finland is in the region. Us, the finns like to call ourselves nordic not scandinavian.

  8. I can't help but notice that you refer to Denmark, Norway, and Sweden as the 3 "Nordic" Nations and you refer to Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland you called them the "Scandinavian" countries, When in fact these descriptions should be reversed as Finland is not Scandinavian.
