6th of June marked the end of the Swedish War of Liberation, in 1523. Gustav Wasa was elected king that day. Generally conceived as the day Sweden became an independent nation.

Same date, but in 1809, the Swedish monarch lost allot of its power. Earlier that year east Sweden (Finland) was formally conquered by Imperial Russia.... connection? Yes!

Finally, in 1974, 6th of June, the Instrument of Government of 1809 was replaced with the Instrument of Government of 1974 changing some stuff making the monarch completely powerless. The monarchs aren't even allowed to vote.

This is why noone cares about D-day in Sweden today.

(had to get this out of my mind)

I respect and understand you, I gave you thumbs up. Who doesn't like to live in a independent country ?!

But you didn't use any tanks, hehe  :trollface:
