The Norse Wars refer to a series of large scale conflicts and skirmishes involving the nation of the United Norse Crown. Commonly divided between two separate conflicts, the Norse Wars include the UNC invasion of Northern Germany and a separate war between states of Russia. In Germany the war is commonly called the Norse-German War, or alternatively the Norse War of Aggression and the North German War. In Russia the conflict is commonly known as the Second Great Northern War, among other names.

The Norse Wars began in 1413 with the Norse invasion of Northern Germany via the state of Lüneburg. Albert II of Germany, Holy Roman Emperor and Archduke of Austria responded by declaring war on the United Norse Crown, and asking all his allies to follow. The war in Northern Germany would bring about the effective end of Norse influence in Lower Saxony for several decades to come after, being the climax of a generation long struggle to achieve superior hegemony in the region. With the United Norse Crown rapidly expanding into Germany, the emperor was fearful of further foreign invasion of the empire, prompting support from many north German states and allies. On the other hand the emperor was combated by old enemies in Germany and supporters of the Norse, who wished to diminish Austrian power in the empire.

Entrenched in a costly war in Germany, the United Norse Crown would concurrently become involved in a war against the states of Russia and the Baltic Sea, who hoped to free themselves from trade dependence on the Norse crown, and open up access to the North Sea from the Baltic, a strait controlled and patrolled by the Norse.

In 1415, with neither side gaining any real significant advantages over the other, the belligerents of the war met in the city of Danzig to discuss peace. The ensuing Treaty of Danzig would be signed officially ending the war.
