History of Iceland

This is the history of Iceland as myelination history starts by discovery around 7th or 8th century Celtic monks are believed to be the first to sail to Iceland this makes it one of the last large islands

become inhabited by people however the Celtic step month didn’t last during the middle of the 9th century – which is often traveled to Shetland and Faroe Islands some of the travelers drifted of course and arrived on Iceland when the first Northstar arrived and Iceland is disputed some believe me to be knotted from Norway he referred to the island as no land but you all know a way more creator name was really needed floki builder son was perhaps the first to sail to Iceland on purpose he explored Island and when seeing a large valley of eyes is believed to have coined the name Iceland but too many years later the first settlement of Iceland was established in ratio week by a Norwegian chieftain ratio is roughly translated smoke Bay the smoke is due to geothermal conditions found in Iceland during the following years several other chieftains arrived with the families and slaves and a population rose gradually with the majority emigrating from Norway in the year of 930 the ALF thing was established in Iceland the

other thing was a judiciary and lawmaking body of chieftains the lowest weren’t written down but memorized by the lowest bigger a common law was established in Iceland based on Norwegian guillotine law a nation was formed the Icelandic Commonwealth later during this period our young Norwegian arrived on Iceland together with his father was exiled from Norway the young Norwegian later became known as Erik the Red when he was exiled from Iceland I mean I guess exhaling residen is family he established the first settlement on Greenland Erik the red Sun life Ericson was likely born in Iceland sailed from Greenland to North America this made him the first European to discover America settle that named binlong was established in what is today known as the found land however the segment didn’t last for reasons unknown the Icelandic worship pagan gods such as Odin and Thor even though they worshipped gods to be awesome enough to get portrayed as superheroes in our time Iceland went through a Christmas Asian process and in the year 1000 it was decided that the whole country should be Christian by law the following years are considered rather peaceful and they started to write down their laws during the 11th century Iceland saw a centralization of power where only a handful of families Nobles had the power this eventually led to two opposing families fighting over power in armed battles several chief things became Wessels under Norway this was done since the Norwegian King wanted to increase his influence over Iceland our time the most powerful

chieftains became Wessels and after decades of conflict dice landed chieftains agreed to accept the serenity of Norway and established a union within a region monarchy the Norwegian ruler Iceland came to an end when the Kalmar Union was established the Kalmar union was a personal union that joined the kingdoms of Denmark Sweden and Norway under a single monarch with Denmark as the leader the jr also included all of Norway’s overseas dependencies which included Iceland several bad events affected Iceland when they were under Danish rule earthquakes volcanic eruptions and the Black Death are some examples the Black Death is estimated to have killed two-thirds of the population Iceland became weak and during the early 1400s the Hansa controlled Iceland’s trade during the 16th century the Reformation came to Iceland it was met with resistance in the beginning as the Catholic Church was strong in Iceland but the Reformation

eventually succeeded in 1602 the dance established a trade monopoly with Iceland to Vicens the hands of dominance they spun up early led to poverty in Iceland any combination would sever natural disasters the population experienced several fluctuations another notable event from this period is the pirate raids in 1627 the Barbary pirates conducted several raids on Iceland that captured hundreds of Icelanders into slavery also another event is direction of Loki in 1783 which claimed 9,000 lives 80% cooked livestock and the ensuing starvation led to a quarter of the population dying in the beginning of the 19th century curable ravaged by the Napoleonic Wars Denmark was on a losing side but when a two kingdoms of Denmark Norway was separated by the Treaty of Kiel Denmark kept Iceland



as a dependency some decades later Iceland experienced a mass emigration to the Americas mainly Canada the National romantic ideas from continental Europe also got a foothold on Iceland an independence movement emerged eventually Iceland was recognized as a fully sovereign state the Kingdom of Iceland however they were still in a personal union with Denmark this meant that demircan Dalal the Foreign Affairs Iceland remained neutral throughout the first world war after the war Iceland experienced some prosperity but was then hit by the Great Depression the Spanish Civil War also affected Iceland’s economy as it cut salt which export in half I suppose bacalao for Lent wasn’t the main priority during the war during the Second World War in 1940 Denver CO sakya Pilar Germany and Iceland had to handle Foreign Affairs on their own they claimed neutrality however Great Britain invaded Iceland and occupied it the same year this

occupation lasted throughout the war Great Britain defended their occupation by claiming it was necessary to stop Germany from occupying Iceland in 1944 a referendum led through official independence of Iceland as a Republic of Iceland Iceland had prospered during war and had managed to amass large currency reserves in foreign banks in combination with the Marshall aid from the US Iceland built several facilities necessary to industrialize their economy Iceland became a charter member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO in 1949 with the restoration that they would never take offensive action against another nation from the 1950s to the mid-1970s Iceland experienced a serious militarized interstate disputes with the United Kingdom known as the cod Wars this for a conflict where Cod’s took to arms to fight for the freedom of all fish in the ocean well I kind of wished for that to be true the conflict revolved around Iceland the extension of fishery limits the result was an extension of Iceland’s fishery limits thus making Iceland the victor of the cod Wars in 1994 Iceland became part of the European Economic Area which further diversified the economy into sectors such as finance biotechnology and manufacturing Iceland was it badly by the financial crisis in 2008 in Iceland’s banking system collapse leading to Iceland taking large foreign loans today licensed economy is on the rise it purchased a surge in tourism the population is around 330 thousand and Iceland is one of the world’s most developed nations that was the history of Iceland.
