Sleepyhead said:What's wrong with Jämtland?
Sweden did own it a lot longer then Denmark, and Sweden is a more important EU country than Norway since it never was independent during this timeframe
Jämtland is wrong since the province was Norwegian 1419.
Up until 1536(?) Norway and Denmark were in a personal-union, meaning that there were TWO nations but one king. After 1536 there was ONE nation, so saying that it was a Danish province is wrong upuntil 1536.
Importance can't enter into it either IMHO.
