Sabaton History:

========= The Royal Guard LYRICS =========

From the frozen north they came
Fought for founding father’s claim
It was then, their tale, began

Trace their roots from 16 strong
By the king where they belong

En tid
Av Krig

Wherever he goes, near or far, they are close
For the King of Sweden they lay down their lives

For the Swedish crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard

Sworn protectors of the throne
Royal doctrine set in stone
For the crown, you shall give your life

By traditions from the past
Swedish soldiers stand steadfast

I frid
Och i strid

And if one should fall, yet another, heeds the call
For king and for country they lay down their lives

För Sverige i tiden
Dit konungen går
De gör vad som synes omöjligt, vad än framtiden spår

Still for the crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard

    First of all, this song depicts the Skirmish at Bender. And unlike what is shown in this video, the Swedish forces were not nobly defending their territory from foreign invaders. In fact, it was the exact opposite. They were occupying a plot of land that was temporarily gifted to them by the Ottoman Empire and decided to overstay their welcome by refusing to leave when peacefully asked to do so. So they were the ones in the wrong here. Here's the longer explanation : King Charles XII also known as Carolus Rex escaped from Russian territory and into the Ottoman Empire after his humiliating defeat at the hands Tsar Peter the Great of Russia, which resulted in the surrender of most of the Swedish Army. The Ottoman Empire welcomed Charles and the remnants of his army warmly and gave him a small plot of land to stay in and also gave him a sizeable allowance. He ended up staying there for 5 years. However during that time, he kept trying meddle in Ottoman politics and constantly tried to provoke the Ottomans into going to war with Russia. The Sultan of the Ottoman Empire eventually got tired of dealing with his plots and at first politely asked him to pack up and go back to Sweden. But Charles refused to leave. And so, the Ottoman Empire had to send in an army to force him out of their territory, leading to the Skirmish at Bender shown in this video, which resulted in the imprisonment and eventual exile of Charles and most of his army back to Sweden.

    Also to the idiot who was calling me a Turk, I am not Turkish and I am not a Muslim. In fact, I've never even been to Turkey or the Middle-East.

    @Doktor Dinkelspiel Regardless of the intent of the video, there were a lot of people in the comments glorifying Swedish monarchy and vilifying the Ottoman Empire. So purely as a history enthusiast, I wanted to make sure they understood the context of the video and what was actually taking place. Regards. :)

    I don't think this is a celebratory video made to commemorate the Skirmish at Bender nor Carolus Rex, but rather Livgardets diehard loyalty to the King of Sweden no matter who he was, where he was or what he was undertaking. Nevertheless, Carolus Rex and his time in the Ottoman Empire is an interesting piece of history, even if it isn't the most flattering read from a swedish point of view. ;)
