HowtheSwedesConqueredAmericaandtheWorld Photo Sweden is a Nordic country on the Scandinavian Peninsula in Northern Europe. At 450,000 km² (174,000 sq mi), Sweden is the third largest country in the European Union in terms of area, and it has a total population of over 9.2 million. Sweden has a low population density of 20 people per km² (52 per square mile). For a small country, Sweden has always punched above its weight in numerous fields such as music, politics, cinema, science, business and sport. Famous Swedish people went “to conquer” the US and the world. We all know famous Swedes (Bergman, Garbo, Nobel (see picture), Borg, Scheele...) or famous Swedish brands (Saab, Volvo, IKEA, Ericsson....).
Swedish Americans are Americans of Swedish descent, most often related to the large groups of immigrants from Sweden in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. The first known Swedish-Americans were the settlers of New Sweden. A colony established by Queen Christina of Sweden in 1638, it centered around the Delaware Valley. In the 2000 U.S. Census, about four million Americans claimed to have Swedish roots. The true number is thought to be considerably higher, and self-identified Swedish Americans in the U.S. are expected soon to outnumber the nine million Swedes in Sweden. Minnesota remains by a wide margin the state with the most inhabitants of Swedish descent (9.6% of the population as of 2005).
Both countries have had strong relationships since the 18th century. We will have a look at ten Famous Swedish Americans and Swedes. Enjoy!
