Sweden hasn't always had the shape it has today. Ever since the foundation of the country, its borders have changed and been adjusted, time and time again. War, settlers and diplomacy have lead to new areas being added and others disappearing. Many provinces that we today regard as natural parts of Sweden, have belonged to the country for shorter periods of time than many ones that no longer are.
This video presents Sweden's territorial extent from c. 1150 until today, 2016, with each border change explained and put into context.
Remember that this is a popular science video, and that some simplifications have been necessary regarding years and circumstances. For the time before the Kalmar Union such simplifications are also unavoidable, since exact sources are often lacking.
