How old? by humon How old? by humon
I’ve drawn Denmark as younger than Sweden and Norway a few times, but that had to do with the age of the landmass. This shows how old the Nordics are as countries.

Denmark’s birth is from when it became a united country instead of tribes fighting each other, Sweden is from King Gustav Vasa's crowning and Norway, Finland and Iceland are from when they became fully independent from all other countries.

Norway is a bit tricky though, because he could also be said to be around the same age as Denmark. But this is how it's usually done.

Well, in actuality Norway was unified as a country in the late 800's by Harald Fairhair, but then we were taken over by Denmark and later Sweden. Still think it's weird to consider the actual country to have been founded in 1905 when it's over a 1000 years older than that, though.

You have to watch Hetalia. It might jade your view on how they look- but it's pretty good at personifying the nations.

Sweden's first boarder definition with another country was with Denmark in the 11th century. So Sweden is atleast as old as denmark. It was done between king Emund den gamle and king Sven Estridsson.

i will always count norway from the 11th century, as norway was a country united under a king at that time but it fell under danish and swedish autority for some time, its the same thing with other countries that also fell under sovereign nations, just because they became colonized much later they can trace the country back to before the colonization?

I have actually heard from another Dane that there are actually no English people... Well there are, but they are all in relations with Denmark...
The Dane told me that the Vikings went to England and wiped out every English person they saw, and some of them moved to Wales, because they Feared the Vikings... Meaning that the only Englishmen are from Wales, while those in England are in family with Denmark... :)
Of course, it could be he was just saying something, and I lack research... -_-'
