      As far as I remember from my university studies  (I have a degree in Modern Languages and we covered Germanic Philology), Denmark ruled over Norway imposing its language; once Norway became independent it created its own language. I do not remember if Sweden was part of the Danish kingdom. I will be pleased to have confirmation about this by any Norwegian, Danish or Swedish member of the list (or any other who might know for sure).
