    1520 · The Stockholm Bloodbath
    Age 20
    A mass execution of Swedish nobles by Danish king Christian II is known as the Stockholm Bloodbath. Christian II invaded Sweden in 1519 and took hold of Stockholm in September 1520. Over 80 nobles were executed for heresy on November 8 and 9. The outrage from the executions led to the Swedish removal of support of the Kalmar Union.
    1523 · Swedish War of Liberation
    Age 23
    The Swedish War of Liberation was a civil war led by nobleman Gustav Vasa. As Christian II heard of the rebellion, he confronted Vasa's men, who won the battle at Brunbacks Ferry. Christian II was defeated by the Swedes in Stockholm and a truce was agreed upon. Vasa was given as a hostage as a show of good faith until the treaty was signed. The Danish King did not keep his word and Vasa was held as a prisoner for two years until his escape. A bounty was placed on Vasa's head. Vasa worked to inspire many to join his cause and lived under disguise until the Danes surrendered in 1525.
    1524 · Treaty of Malmo
    Age 24
    The Treaty of Malmo was signed on September 1, 1524, which ended the Swedish War of Liberation and the independence of Sweden was recognized by Denmark and Norway.
