How Big Was Denmark in the Viking Age?

The Viking Age was born in Denmark, with many of the raids in England, Northern France and Spain originating in the warbands of Danish petty kings. However when we talk about “Denmark” during this time, it’s worth noting that we don’t mean the same thing as that which we mean today. Instead, Denmark was considerably larger than the boundaries of the modern country, including Schleswig to the south, and a stretch of coastline across the Øresund including the modern Swedish regions of Skåne, Halland and further north the Norwegian regions around the Vik known as Viken.
