The legendary kings of Sweden
Sweden
are the Swedish mythological kings who preceded Eric the Victorious, according to sources such as the Norse Sagas, Beowulf, Rimbert, Adam of Bremen
Adam of Bremen
and Saxo Grammaticus, but who are of disputed historicity because the sources are more or less unreliable, and sometimes contradictory. They are called sagokonungar or sagokungar in Swedish, meaning " Saga

kings" according to the etymology given by SAOB. The first Kings attested in contemporary sources are those mentioned in the Vita Ansgari. However, very little is known about the extent of their rule. The first king attested in more than one source was Eric the Victorious, who lived around 970–995

Early Swedish History
Swedish pre-history ends around 800 CE, when the Viking Age begins and written sources are available. The Viking Age lasted until the mid-11th century, when the Christianization of Scandinavia was largely completed. The period 1050 to 1350 – when the Black Death struck Europe – is considered the Older Middle Ages. The period 1350 to 1523 – when king Gustav Vasa, who led the unification of Sweden, was crowned – is considered the Younger Middle Ages.[a] During this period, Sweden was gradually consolidated as a single nation. Scandinavia was formally Christianized by 1100 AD

Prehistoric Sweden
Human prehistory is the period between the use of the first stone tools c. 3.3 million years ago and the invention of writing systems. The earliest writing systems appeared c. 5,300 years ago, but writing was not used in some human cultures until the 19th century or even later. The end of prehistory therefore came at very different dates in different places, and the term is less often used in discussing societies where prehistory ended relatively recently. Sumer

Canute VI
Canute VI (Danish: Knud Valdemarsøn; 1163 – 12 November 1202) was King of Denmark (1182–1202).[2] Canute VI was the eldest son of King Valdemar I and Sophia of Polotsk. Life[edit] Canute VI was proclaimed King of Denmark, first as co-regent in 1170 and as sole ruler in 1182[3] at the Urnehoved Assembly (Danish: landsting) and subsequently at the other assemblies throughout Denmark. He immediately faced a peasant uprising in Skåne. The peasants refused to pay Bishop Absalon's tithe. They met at the Skåne Assembly and chose Harald Skreng, one of Canute friends to represent them to the king to plead their case. The king refused to hear Skreng out and began to gather an army to teach the peasants their place. Before the king could muster his army, the nobles of Halland and Skåne cobbled together their own army and defeated the peasants in a bloody battle at Dysjebro. Canute arrived with his army and proceeded to teach the peasants a lesson with fire and sword

Ahistoricism
Ahistoricism refers to a lack of concern for history, historical development, or tradition.[1] Charges of ahistoricism are frequently critical, implying that the subject is historically inaccurate or ignorant (for example, an ahistorical attitude). It can also describe a person's failure to frame an argument or issue in a historical context or to disregard historical fact or implication.[2] An example of that would be films including dinosaurs and prehistoric human beings living side by side, but they were, in reality, millions of years apart. The term can mean also desribe a view that history has no relevance or importance in the decision making of modern life.[3] In some academic contexts, ahistoricism is the accepted norm
