The Kingdom of Sweden so far remains neutral to both the Muscovites and the Poles, but it keeps its cold eye on their northern lands. No one has any doubt that it shall draw its hands around the throat of whichever nation loses the coming war. The Swedes have an impressive army, dreaded by all of Northern Europe.
Jaques de Clermont

The Kingdom of Sweden is a nation in Mount&Blade: With Fire & Sword, located on the northwestern edge of the map of Eastern Europe.

It is ruled by King Carl Gustaf, and the claimant to the throne is Former Queen Christina. It is at the North-West area of the map.

The Kingdom of Sweden is one of two nations without a main questline, the other being the Crimean Khanate.

Tactics[]

Strengths[]

  • Excellent musketeers.
  • Reliable infantry capable in going toe-to-toe with other infantry and cavalry.
  • Superb dragoons and heavy cavalry.
  • Strongest militia units in the game.

Weaknesses[]

  • Lacking in light infantry.
  • Poor light cavalry.

Sweden is known for its heavy infantry, cavalry, and skilled musketeers. These aspects combined, Sweden is one of the most powerful factions. Crimean and Cossack Hetmanate cavalry can easily deal with Swedish shock infantry, but Swedish miquelet muskets, if in proper numbers, can prevent this. Polish Winged Hussars are perhaps Sweden's most challenging opponent. These hussars can ride through musket ranks and heavy infantry ranks. Swedish cavalry is capable of preventing this, but they are expensive to maintain and do not have the shooting skill of Cossack cavaliers, except the top-ranking Swedish Reiter, who is also equipped with the Good Broadsword, the most powerful one handed weapon in the game, although it's plagued with having the slowest speed of a sword in the game. When the horsemen are not shooting at enemies, they can ride through the ranks wielding said weapon, which has been noted to split groups up effectively. All in all, Sweden is a very general faction able in most all situations.

Trivia[]

  • Out of all of the nations in Eastern Europe, the Kingdom of Sweden is the only one that exists in modern times as it does in With Fire & Sword, with only slight differences: its territories in Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania are no longer Sweden's, and Finland is independent.
  • The Kingdom of Sweden was not fully shown in With Fire & Sword, because Sweden itself wasn't featured, and not all of Finland was shown either.
  • Ratsherr, a title shared by several Swedish vassals, is German for councilor, which would mean that these vassals were members of the Privy Council of Sweden, key advisors (and occasional co-rulers) to the Swedish monarch. The title in Swedish would be "Rådsherre".
  • In the game's code, the Kingdom of Sweden is referred to as nord; the Kingdom of Nords being similar in that it is based around the Nordic countries/Scandinavia.
  • In the audio files for the battle cries, there is a clip where a dying Swedish soldier is heard speaking German. This clip is swed_man_death_2.ogg. Whether this represents the regionality of individual soldiers (such as the German Pikeman) or that the Swedish faction in the game is actually a simplified version of the politics on the western side of the map (such as Swedish vassals using German titles, and the inclusion of the Prussian region as Swedish), or simply an oversight, is unknown.
