Denmark is located in the north of Europe and is reminiscent of a bridge between Skandinaven and the rest of Europe. Denmark has a long coastline with many fjords and a large number of islands. At the beginning of our era it was populated by Dag tribes, of which it also got its name. From the end of the 8th to the 11th century, the Danes took an active part in the Viking conquests. The United Danish Kingdom was established in the early 10th century. In the 11th century Denmark, Norway and England were temporarily united under King Knud I. In 1397 the Calmar Union was conducted under Margaret the Danish. Under the rule of the Danish kings, Denmark, Sweden (with Finland) and Norway (with Iceland) were united. In 1536 Lutheranism was introduced into the Danish state. In the 18th century, a territorial conflict between Sweden and Denmark flared up. At that time the military success was already on the side of the Swedes, the Danish-Swedish war for the supremacy on the Baltic ended with the defeat of Denmark.
Denmark has two unique units in the 18th century - Musketeers and Grenadiers. Danish 18th century Musketeers are among the best ranged units in the game. They are more expensive, take longer to train and have both a lower rate of fire and melee attack, though. Denmark's Grenadiers are better in both melee and ranged attack, but are also more expensive, take slighly longer to train and take a little longer to reload. Apart from that, it's a standard European country.
Similar to Bavaria and Prussia, Denmark's strength lies in the 18th century, with its strong Musketeers and Grenadiers which excel at ranged combat.
