Proposal of Danish Campaign Introduction
*From the Viking age towards the end of the 13th century, the kingdom of Denmark consisted of Jutland, north from the River Eider, the islands of Zealand, Funen and Bornholm, along with Skåne,Halland and Blekinge, which is a part of southern Sweden today. The lands between the Eider and the Kongeåen were separated from the kingdom as two vassal duchies of Schleswig and Holstein.
A high point was reached during the reign of Valdemar II, who led the formation of a Danish "Baltic Sea Empire", which by 1221 extended control from Estonia in the east to Norway in the north. In this period several of the "regional" law codes were given; notably the Code of Jutland from 1241, which asserted several modern concepts like right of property; "that the king cannot rule without and beyond the law"; "and that all men are equal to the law". Following the death of Valdemar II in 1241 and to the ascension of Valdemar IV in 1340, the kingdom was in general decline because of internal strife and the rise of the Hanseatic League. The competition between the sons of Valdemar II had the long term result that the southern parts of Jutland were separated from the kingdom of Denmark and became semi-independent vassal duchies/counties.
**Any attempt to expand south would be extremly difficult for any Danish Ruler, The Holy Roman Empire is too mighty a nation to be enemies with and prehaps a “short term” alliance with them should be sought, The Papal States would never forgive an incursion against the Order of The Teutonic Knights and excommunication for europes newest christian empire would definatly not be in the nations intrest. The only viable optiion is too quickly seize lands to the north and control the trade routes north, prehaps then an alliance with France and Poland could be sought to sought to further Denmarks conquest of Europe and become a nation unbelievable power.
In all honesty this is the only way to introduce Denamark, if Sweden is too be a Faction in this mod then this would have to be mentioned also.
