The world oversaw a Swedish attempt to claim independence destroyed by the forces of the Kalmar Union and her allies during 1470-71. This has set back any Swedish nationalism by far, and this begins to stir up trouble in parts of Europe, fearing another great power arising as the Kalmar Union unites as one nation. Would Europe ever be the same again, with new troubles to come?


This timeline is basically about the Swedish attempt to gain independence in the Danish-Swedish war of 1470-71. This ultimately fails, and Denmark begins to strengthen the union, making it into a political one in 1559. This begins to change most of the history of Europe, compared to our timeline, and they will set off in a grand adventure, such as a Scandinavian America to the first group of Scandinavians to land on the Moon.
