A Flatpack History of Sweden

46. Gone With the Wind

November 28, 2021

King Magnus III is dead and his young son Birger is too young to steer the Kingdom through choppy waters. Instead it is up to Marsk Torgil Knutsson to lead Sweden for the time being as head of the Regency Council. The 1200s end with Swedish attention turning to the east and a series of campaigns against old enemy Novgorod are launched. Back home, King Birger gets married to a Danish princess, setting up a marriage alliance that will affect the political layout of Scandinavia for many years to come.
