However, Christian also continued pursuing his claim to Norway. The Swedish aristocracy was reluctant to back Charles in a war against Denmark over Norway, and already in 1450, Charles was forced to relinquish the throne of Norway in favour of Christian. * The Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari, Bulgaria, is a Thracian kurgan of ''ca.'' the 3rd century BC. * The Håga Kurgan, located on the outskirts of Uppsala, Sweden, is a large Nordic Bronze Age kurgan from ''ca.'' 1000 BC. * The Pereshchepina Kurgan (Pereshchepina Treasure) is a burial memorial of the Great Bulgaria Khan Kubrat from ''ca.''
