A Flatpack History of Sweden

27. The Sons of Olof Skötkonung

February 21, 2021

We start this episode in 1022 as Anund Jakob ascends the throne of Sweden, becoming King after his father, Olof Skötkonung. We look at his reign and how he was followed by his half-brother Emund. There is as always more war among the Scandinavian nations, religious turmoil and an intriguing historical dilemma surrounding some coins minted in Sigtuna! 

(Had to briefly take down the episode as we noticed some bad editing at the end, if you got that copy, enjoy the rare outtakes!)
