History

Modern Sweden was established in the 11th century and the country was split between the central and northern regions, which were ruled by Swedes, and the southern regions of Sweden which were ruled by Denmark until the 17th century. During the Middle Ages, Sweden rapidly conquered the Baltic states and established trade relations with Russia. In the 12th century, Sweden converted to Christianity. In the 16th century, Sweden left the Catholic Church and adopted Protestantism. In the 17th century, Sweden conquered large parts of Russia, Finland, Denmark, and Germany, although it lost a great portion of its territory during the Great Northern War in the 18th century. In the 19th century, Sweden established colonies in Africa and the Americas that it later sold off. In the 20th century, Sweden became one of the most progressive countries in Europe. It stayed neutral throughout the second world war.
