Denmark Country History

Denmark is a small country the history of Denmark is a bit of a convoluted one. Denmark is a constitutional monarchy and the oldest kingdom in Europe. Thousands years ago the people lived in the area of present-day Denmark. But probably there had to leave, because of the ice-cap that spread over the land during the period of the Weichsel glaciations in Denmark. From the 4th to the 1st century BC the climate in Denmark and southern Scandinavia became cooler and wetter, limiting agriculture and setting the stage for local groups to migrate southward into Germania. Denmark has religious freedom however and several other Protestant denominations and other religions exist. Denmark was a great power based on the Jutland Peninsula the Island of Zealand and the southern part of what is now Sweden during the period of 9th-11th centuries. This is the Viking period. The reign of the Vikings was short, but an important chapter in the history of Denmark. As the dark ages moved along, the people of Europe grew better skilled at defend themselves, and the Vikings continued a crippling war against England. On this time Charlemagne's Christian empire had expanded to the southern border of the Danes, and Frankish source provide the earliest historical evidence of the Danes. During this period the Danes were based on the Jutland Peninsula, the island of Zealand, and the southern part of present-day Sweden. In the early 12th century Denmark became the seat of an independent church province of Scandinavia. The king of Denmark had difficulty maintaining control of the kingdom in the face of opposition from the nobility and from the Church. By the late 13th century, royal power had waned, and the nobility forced the king to grant a charter, considered Denmark's first constitution. The middle ages saw a period of close cooperation between the Crown and the Roman Catholic Church. The renaissance was kind to the culture of Denmark, marked mainly by an architectural boom throughout the islands, as castles and cathedrals sprouted up all across the countryside. The Danish liberal movement gained momentum in the 1830s and in 1849 Denmark became a constitutional monarchy. After the war with Prussia and Austria in 1864 Denmark was forced to cede Schleswig-Holstein to Prussia and adopt a policy of neutrality. Denmark remained neutral during World War I. Despite its declaration of neutrality at the beginning of World War II it was invaded by the Germans in 1940 and occupied until it was liberated by the Allied forces in May 1945. Denmark became a charter member of the United Nations and was one of the original signers of the North Atlantic Treaty. In 1973 Denmark joined the European Economic Community.
