Gustav II Adolf responsible for the Vasa ship fiasco!

Gustav II Adolf is responsible for one of the biggest fiasco. He was responsible for the Vasa ship capsizing.

He was so mad that he forced them to build two floors but the builder wanted to
have 1. But again dared to say to the king, so when the ship was clearly launched the
and drove off on its maiden voyage. The sails were hoisted and the Vasa heeled over. they
open gun slots took in water. Wasa became so heavy that when it got a little
