Amazing Swedish History

Swedish history is full of amazing stories. There’s the king who was killed by a pastry, the man who neutered horses with his teeth, the king who berated Adolf Hitler in his office,… Over the next few weeks, SwedishFreak will tell you everything you need to know about Swedish history, plus a lot of weird stuff that you really don’t need to know, but…

Our Swedish history comes in six parts, covering 1,300 years from about 700 AD until now. The first part, published today, tells why Swedish Vikings went berserk, carved their names with runes in the stone balustrade in the great basilica in Istanbul, founded Russia and brought Christianity to Ukraine.

Check out our history page (Culture/History) which presents each of the six episodes, or dive directly into The Viking Age!

Next episode will follow… shortly.
