What's your opinion on the Swedish Empire?
Was it's decline all for the best?
I'm a swede myself, so I'm biased as fuck, but I would like to hear your opinion
Yes, it's fucking sad how we let russia become the boss over eastern Europe.
The empire didn't last much longer than a century, but at least the military was fucking top-notch
>Was it's decline all for the best?
No, it was a tragedy. That fuckup Charles XII ruined everything by pushing into inner Russia like a mong after caving their shit in at Narva, he should've gone for St. Petersburg and fortified himself there. Choking the Russians out of the Baltic would have changed history, without access to the sea that way they would have remained a backwater of furshits instead of fucking up the entire western world for centuries.

Deluge, fuck you
You could have accepted legitimist Catholic Vasas

St. Petersburg did not exist until 1703 when Peter the Great founded it on occupied Swedish clay.
Also he didn't push into Russia until 1707 but instead decided to rape Polan for 5 years
