Before Norway conquered Jämtland in the 12th century, Jämtland was actually an independent nation. It stayed in Norwegian until the Treaty of Brömsebro in 1645 when the province was ceded to Sweden. This is still the land of the Jamts and it has around 115.000 inhabitants. These inhabitants live in a land equal to the size of Moldova or Belgium.
