A State of Aggression? Swedish Peasant Elites and the Art of Bargaining During the Nordic Seven Years’ War (1563–70)
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of History.
2016 (English)In: Aggressive and Violent Peasant Elites in the Nordic Countries, C. 1500-1700 / [ed] Ulla Koskinen, Springer, 2016, 145-170 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter addresses the violent mentality of peasant elites in the Swedish Realm during the mid-sixteenth century. The purpose is to discuss how the belligerent politics of the Swedish kings was inflicted on peasant communities, and why this expansionist strategy came to foster a mentality of masculine honour and aggressive behaviour among the leading strata of peasant society. I will present a case study of the army campaigns against Norway in 1564–65 (which were ultimately futile) to demonstrate how the war policy came to rely on an extended bargaining process between royal officials and peasant elites, which in turn encouraged violent ideals of masculine honour as a means to achieve recognition.
