political character

in many National and International vintage racing events with great success. In September 2001, the Swedish king Carl XVI Gustaf was visiting Varberg when he suddenly got pied by a 16-year old boy. Such an attack could possibly have counted as high treason under Swedish law, which would have warranted a long prison sentence. However, the perpetrator was merely convicted for assault as it could not be proven that his motive was of political character. He was therefore sentenced to no more than hefty day-fines (day-fine). Two other boys, who had helped to prepare the attack by making the cake, were also fined. http: www.aftonbladet.se nyheter article10246204.ab During a visit to Varberg Varberg, Halland A 16-year old boy The band is mostly known for their energetic live performances. They have done numerous festival gigs and have also toured together with The Soundtrack of Our Lives. Lead singer Simon Ohlsson is usually very wild and erratic on stage and several performances have gone awry. For example, early in the band's career, a gig in Varberg ended with Simon being dragged away by police who thought he was on drugs (it is said that he had only had one beer); and at Rookiefestivalen 2004 he jumped out into the sparse crowd and was thrown out from the venue by a security guard, while the rest of the band kept playing. - '''41 (Swedish national road 41)''' Varberg Borås align "right" 83 km - birth_date WikiPedia:Varberg Dmoz:Regional Europe Sweden Halland County Localities Varberg

historical building

Opposition to Magnus' rule in Norway led to a settlement between the king and the Norwegian nobility at Varberg on 15 August 1343. In violation of the Norwegian laws on royal inheritance, Magnus' younger son Haakon (Haakon VI of Norway) would become king of Norway, with Magnus as regent during his minority. Later the same year, it was declared that Magnus' older son, Eric (Eric XII of Sweden) would become king of Sweden on Magnus' death. Thus, the union between Norway and Sweden would be severed. This occurred when Haakon came of age in 1355.
