I do maps and stuff, but mainly maps. My primary cartographic interest is historical - both factual and counterfactual.

Dano-Swedish War 1519: Winter Campaign
A follow up to my previous map, detailing the further advances of Christian II's invasion of Sweden in my alternate history timeline. Do check it out if AH is your thing :)

ATL: Dano-Swedish War of 1518/1519
A map of an alternate Dano-Swedish war during the last part of the Kalmar Union. It was made for my counterfactual story about Christian II of Denmark, which you can find here: www.alternatehistory.com/forum…

In 1517 a feud erupted between the Lord Steward of Sweden, Sten Sture the Younger and the archbishop of Uppsala, Gustav Trolle. At the turn of the year, Trolle had been murdered by enraged peasants after the first attempt of Christian II to rescue him had been thwarted. By the winter of 1518, Christian II had raised a considerable army and began his campaign against the Swedes.

I'm very happy with this map, since I learned so much about Illustrator in the process of making it. Furthermore, it's a combination of information gathered for several other previous maps such as the fief/hundred distribution of Denmark in 1513 and my latest map of Sweden in the late middle ages. The Norwegian internal borders aren't that precise, since the earliest source was from 1570. 

As always, thoughts and criticisms are welcome.

The Baltic, 1517
Another historical map, showing the Baltic in the year 1517.

By 1517 Sweden had faced several years of political turmoil between those in favour and those against a continuation of the Scandinavian dynastic union. One of those in favour of maintaining the Kalmar Union was the archbishop of Uppsala, Gustav Trolle. The Lord Steward (riksföreståndare) of Sweden , Sten Sture the Younger persecuted him forcefully and besieged the episcopal castle of Almarestäket. As a result, the archbishop called upon the executor of the temporal authority, Christian II of Denmark, to defend the Catholic church. In a badly planned campaign, Christian II launched a naval expedition against the Swedish capital of Stockholm with the intent of breaking through to Almarestäket and liberate Trolle. 

The Danish army, however, was defeated at the village of Vädla outside of Stockholm and Gustav Trolle subsequently had to surrender and go into captivity. 

It would, however, not be the last attack on Sweden undertaken by Christian II.

Southern Sweden in the Late Middle Ages
A rework of my earlier map of medieval Sweden, but based on another more stout source. I am really happy with this map - the combination of different settlement types, roads and provincial (län) borders really frame the piece, IMHO. I'm also very satisfied with the use of a single colour to denote the extent of the Swedish realm. In my last map of Sweden, I used various shades of blue to distinguish the provinces, which, in my own opinion, gave the map a "confused" look. 

Note: Eriksgatan was the traditional route of royal acclamation undertaken by medieval Swedish kings.

Scotland in the Early 16th Century
A map for my ongoing Nordic counterfactual history.

This is my first topographical map, so there are bound to be some mistakes here and there. My apologises to those with a close relationship with a 1:1 correct representation of the highlands, but it was a hassle to match the various maps together. 

Done in illustrator, coat of arms taken from wappenwiki. 

Thoughts, comments and criticism are most welcome! 


Between Rose and Thistle

After the death of James IV at Flodden, his wife Margaret Tudor is appointed regent of his young sons James and Alexander. However, Margaret enrages the pro-French faction by favouring an alliance with her brother Henry VIII. When she married Archibald Douglas, the 6th Earl of Angus in secret, she forfeited her position as regent (her late husband's will stipulating that she only keep the position as long as she remain a widow). 

Consequently, Margaret is deposed by the Scottish privy council. In her place John Stewart, duke of Albany and cousin of James IV, is recalled from France to serve as Governor and Protector of the Realm. In the ensuing power struggle, Margaret flees south to the court of Henry VIII with her oldest son James in tow. However, her second son the infant Alexander, Duke of Ross, is captured by forces loyal to Albany.

With Margaret and James in London, the privy council declares James V deposed and hails the duke of Ross as Alexander IV, with Albany as his regent. 

Fearful of an English army coming North to restore James V to the Scottish throne, John Stewart goes through with the historically correct plans of restoring the Orkney and Shetland Isles to Danish control in exchange for monetary and possibly military support. Christian II of Denmark, recently wed to Isabella of Austria-Burgundy and annoyed by English incursions on Iceland, is happy to oblige.

Hello, I'm in a DA group about the history of India, and I see you are familiar with that with the excellent maps you've made. I  was wondering if you would be interested in volunteering to create one of your high-quality maps depicting the Maurya Empire at the height of its power.

Hi there! So for taking so long to reply, it's been a busy couple of weeks for me. I might do a Mauryan Empire map at some point, but I'm going to have my hands full in the immediate future, so any maps I might or might not do will be rather smallish in scale :)
