Stockholm

article , and in older texts often as the '''Royal Caroline Institute''') is a medical university (Medical school) in Solna (Solna Municipality) within the Stockholm urban area, Sweden, and one of Europe's largest medical universities. It was founded in 1810 on Kungsholmen on the west side of Stockholm; the main campus was relocated decades later to Solna, just outside Stockholm (Stockholm Municipality). A second campus was established more recently in Flemingsberg, Huddinge (Huddinge Municipality) south of Stockholm. Södertörn University was established in 1996 by the Parliament of Sweden, because the number of students in the Stockholm area, particularly at Stockholm University, was deemed as too high. 1910s In 1917 Revolutionary fervour engulfed Sweden. Riots took place in many cities. In Västervik a workers council took control of day-to-day affairs. In Stockholm soldiers marched together with workers on May Day. In the upper-class neighbourhood of Stockholm, Östermalm, residents formed paramilitary structures to defend themselves from a possible armed revolution. 13th century The greatest medieval statesman of Sweden, and one of the principal architects of its rise as a nation, was Birger Jarl the Regent, who practically ruled the land from 1248 to 1266. He is today revered as the founder of Stockholm and as the creator of national legislations. His wise reforms prepared the way for the abolition of serfdom. The increased respect — and power — which later royals owe to Birger Jarl was still further extended by his son, King Magnus Ladulås (Magnus III of Sweden) (1275–90). Both these rulers, by the institution of separate and almost independent duchies, attempted to introduce into Sweden a feudal system similar to that already established elsewhere in Europe; the danger of thus weakening the realm by partition was averted, though not without violent and tragic complications by the opponents, the Folkung party. (Unfortunately, the term ''Folkung'' also later referred to Earl Birger's descendants, forming the royal Folkunge of Bjelbo dynasty.) Finally, in 1319, the severed portions of Sweden were once more reunited. Commons:Category:Stockholm Wikipedia:Stockholm Dmoz:Europe Sweden Stockholm County Localities Stockholm
