Treaty of Malmö

The Treaty of Malmö (Swedish: Malmö recess), signed on 1 September 1524, ended the Swedish War of Liberation. Denmark-Norway acknowledged the independent status of Sweden, which in turn renounced claims to Scania and Blekinge. [1]

The difficult question of the control of Gotland was deferred to later occasion, to be refereed by a committee of representatives from various Hanseatic League cities. Swedish troops were to continue military occupation of Ranrike until the issue was resolved. By 1532, no agreement had been reached, and Ranrike was returned to Denmark-Norway in exchange for 1,200 guilders. [2]
