A short drama: History made alive

The King of Sweden wants to make Maiden of Finland more civilized
at the time when Finland was a part of Sweden  1100-1800...

The King also wants the Finnish to fight in wars to create Great Sweden in the 17th century.
During 1808-1809 Russia takes Finland from Sweden, giving Finland full autonomy,
but later on the oppression starts....





(photo by Madhuliika)
The Bolsevits revolution 1917 in Russia gives Finland a chance
to declare herself as an independent country....
"We are not Swedes, we will never become Russians, so let us be Finns!"


Sweden accepts the recognition as the eastern border has always caused troubles,
and from now on it will be the problem of the Maiden of Finland...
