No, Kalmar castle is not as important as Bohus in Scandinavian history. Look up in an index of any history book and you'll find that Bohus has more pages than Kalmar

"Look up in an index of any history book and you'll find that Bohus has more pages than Kalmar"
Come on, that's a rather stupid argument. It's says in the Bible that Kalmar is more important :^)
>>
>>53831286
Bohus has never been taken in combat, even though it has been sieged 14 times. It has been one of the most important castles in Norway, Denmark and Sweden.

Kalmar was... conquered once. That's about it. It isn't a very important castle in the grand scheme of things

>>53831403
Kalmar was an important castle (and city) before the annexation of Skåneländerna.
