The Swedish Germanic in pictures of great historical
Ihab Salim-independent journalist-Sandviken-Sweden:
Swedes are a Scandinavian people, mostly inhabiting Sweden and the other Nordic countries, with descendants living in a number of countries.
Until the 9th century, the Scandinavian people lived in small Germanic kingdoms and chiefdoms known as petty kingdoms.
The Germanic tribe of the Swedes lived in Svealand, bordering the Geats to the south.
The ancient Germanic tribe of the Suiones,sometimes called Svear in academic works,were at the roots of Swedish statehood and contemporary with the Geats and the Daner in Scandinavia.
The roman bureaucrat and historian, Jordanes mentions in his work "Scandza" that these tribes are "the tallest of all men".
He later mentions other Scandinavian tribes as being of the same height.
According to recent genetic analysis, both mtDNA and Y chromosome polymorphisms showed a noticeable genetic affinity between Swedes and central Europeans,especially Germans (conclusions also valid for Norwegians).
For the global genetic make-up of the Swedish people and other peoples.
Another detailed nuclear genetic study has also implied that Swedes largely share genetics with Finns.
Sweden has become by the sweat of the people,where the consolidation of Sweden was a long process, and later, as Sweden's borders fluctuated over the centuries, so did the use of the Swedish language as well as Swedish self-identification.
Today,as yesterday,Sweden is the Kingdom of Humanity and the people of peace.
