A confederation of petty republics formed under Swedish suzerainty in 1756 by Sven the Great. It lasted until 1883, when the local governments were abolished and the various national councils were unified into the Swedish Riksdag by Sven IV Gustaf, as a primary impetus for the Great Baltic Wars (1884-1897). The Commonwealth was re-established by Sven V Frederick in 1899, but primarily as a forum for cooperation among the republics, rather than a political entity of its own.
