    >No major cities

    That's pretty much why it's not popular. Japan gets the spotlight because it was already a decently urbanized society which kind of mirrored the developed parts of Europe in many ways. Cities like Kyoto and Edo were proper big cities, and the overall infrastructure of the country was reasonably impressive

    I mean its also pretty funny how well after several decades of the king dying he still had alleged brothers and bastard children popping up who were in the 20s or 30s. It goes to levels of Dmitry ivanovich impersonation. (Although only one of those became king)

          It has a cool name in norwegian, but what are we supposed to call it in english, we already have a hundred years war, norway wasn't an empire at the time. The only name I can imagine is "The war where 10,000 random pretenders came out of the floorboards every 10 minutes"

          How about the Branch-Blood wars? As the branches of family trees fought, and they had the blood of kings. Ties in nicely to the Birch legs too.

        >Some contemporary accounts show people viewed the civil war era as notably different from what had gone before. Theodoricus the Monk, who wrote a history of Norway in Latin c. 1180, decided to end with the death of King Sigurd the Crusader in 1130 as he considered it "... utterly unfitting to record for posterity the crimes, killings, perjuries, parricides, desecration of holy places, the contempt for God, the plundering no less of the clergy than of the whole people, the abductions of women and other abominations which it would take long to enumerate"

        >The English historian William of Newburgh, writing c. 1200, writes of Norway that
        "... for more than a century back, although the succession of kings there had been rapid, yet none of them had ended his days by age or sickness, but all had perished by the sword, leaving the dignity of empire to their assassins as their lawful successors; so that, indeed, the expression, "Hast thou killed, and also taken possession?" [cf. 1 Kings 21:19] may seem to apply to all who reigned there for so long a space of time."

      In school, after we learn about the Black plague we skip to the Romanticism of the 18th century. So while I like Norwegian history, even our own history teachers think it's boring for about 500 years

        Might be just a pride thing.
        After all, god knowns how long of "We were a danish colonial possesion" probably isn't very exciting.
        On the other hand its probably a strategic omission. I have a romanian friend who had a history class that curiously skipped every part of romanian history when they were a beyilik, only talked about when they were killing turks.

        Norwegian schools only teach 1800s parliamentary history about sverdrup and then a little bit about the postwar AP era. We had literally nothing about anything pre 1800.
