A Union Falling Apart – Lecture at Kalmar Castle

Today marked a special happening: I was lucky enough to get to lecture on the fantastic castle of Kalmar, a medieval fortress turned into a Renaissance palace in the 16th century by two of Gustav Vasa’s sons, Erik XIV and Johan III.

But my lecture was of course about a well-known enemy of Gustav Vasa – Christian II. He was dethroned by Gustav Vasa and deemed a tyrant by him.

And yes, despite being the first month of Spring, it was still a bit chilly when I was posing for this picture.
