Background

The union was formed in 1397 when representatives from Denmark, Sweden and Norway met in the castle Kalmar on the southeast coast of Sweden. It was decided that the three realms would be forever united under one king. When the three respective kings died, instead of their successors a new single king would be put in place who held control over all three. General governance of the nations are still handled by three separate legislatures, who all answer to the King.
