1611-1718 (stormaktstiden) began when King Gustav II Adolf became king 1611 and ended when Charles XII died 1718.

As it sounds, Sweden was a superpower during the seventeenth century. We were well placed, as Denmark had a crisis and other countries as well. So the Swedish king took the opportunity and a war began which later became the Thirty Years War.

Now Sweden became a powerful country. We took over more and more parts of countries around the Baltic Sea.


But Denmark attack over the Baltic Sea when the worst winter in 100 years! Charles X who fought in Poland turns and march across the ice behind the Danish troops and attacks on the ice.



But every age has an end. And it comes when Charles XII dies. He died when he inspected a shooting moat input a war in norway.
