Region: Sweden, Denmark?

Notes:  This Swedish tune has been variously described as having been written in celebration of the amalgamation (?) of Sweden and Denmark in 1814 (?), see following comment.  Searches for “1814 tune” on Google yield only the entirely different “In 1814 we took a little trip / Along with Col. Jackson down the mighty Mississip.”

David Kaynor writes, “The latest information I have about “1814” is that it’s in a Swedish tune collection published in 1814 and is referred to simply as a slängpolska from Södermanland.”
