Description : Excerpt from Historical Abstracts: Being Outlines of the History of Some of the Less Known States of Europe The early history of the Scandinavian people is that of scattered and contending tribes, among whom the stronger gradually absorb the weaker and thus extend both their dominions and their name. The Danes, the Swedes, and the Norwegians are found alike inhabiting the most northern of the two peninsulas; the tendency of migration however was southward; the Danes went forth from Scania, the first cradle of their race, upon the northern shore of the Sound, they over-ran the neighbouring isles and also Jutland, they carried their settlements into Sleswig as far as the banks of the Eider. The Swedes descended from beyond the Lake Malar, they united by conquest or by compact with the Goths, and in time the King of Upsala exchanged his title for that of King of the two people. And if the Norwegians proved more stationary it was because they were shut in by natural barriers and by neighbours whose strength was from the first superior to their own. Until the ninth century it is the history of tribes and not of nations. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
