Executed in wood, it is located on the grounds of her abbey at Vadstena in ¨ stergo¨tland and is thought to depict her as O an older woman. ) 30 CULTURE AND CUSTOMS OF SWEDEN The Protestant Reformation reached Sweden in the 1520s, largely through young clergy who had studied in Wittenberg and preached the new ideas in urban churches. Their work, however, took place in a cauldron of political turmoil surrounding Sweden’s leaving the union with Denmark and establishing a new monarchy.

In 2009, it enjoyed enormous notoriety because of a legal case as well as success at the polls in the election for the EU parliament. Another is the Cheaper Beer Party, whose goal is rather obvious. A few of these groups are openly critical of democracy, modernity, the industrial society, the country’s growing multiethnic population, and the like.

Furniture was added to its product line in 1947, and the company moved to showroom-based marketing in the 1950s.
