The capsizing of the Vasa.

The capsizing of the Vasa.

The Royal Warship Vasa capsized on her maiden voyage in August 1628 and never once fired her guns at the enemy. Raised in 1961 the Vasa is the only well preserved 17th century warship in the world. She has her own museum in Stockholm, Sweden.
I start of by telling about the sons of the 16th century King Gustav Vasa . Gustav Vasa created the modern nation-state Sweden. There is also the story of Gustav II Adolf, grandson of Gustav Vasa.
