Interesting question I must say. How and what should I say? For beauty is in the eye of the beholder, with this, all women are beautiful. Some times it is her hair, her walk, her manner of speaking and of course her looks. But, all in all, all women are beautiful.
But of course, we are speaking about Nordic women of the viking times. I would enjoy to hear your impressions of them, but they are dead now and it is not good to speak to the dead.
Of Nordic women of the present times, they are as of most European areas, varied as with the men. Not all are blond, not all are not blond. Most are plain speaking, they like you or they do not.
The Viking spirit though, is very strong in Denmark and Norway, the Swedish will speak for them selves.
The following url provides a much better information on the Viking ladies and their role in society.
I deliberately waited for Karl's reaction and now I can react too. I again completely agree with Karl. For me as a North-West-European coming from a country, South-West of Scandinavia I can say that Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish and Icelandic girls and women have something special, because they are Nordic women. You have both very beautiful blond, blue eyed Scandinavian women and girls and Brunettes. The Danish girls I knew from Copenhagen were beautiful Brunettes, but I saw beautiful and nice blond, blue eyed Danish women/girls in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Arnhem, La Gomera at the Canary Islands and in Danish cinema and tv series too. They are special for me because they are different than Dutch, Belgian, German or British women and girls. Sometimes due to their Nordic origin they are more blond than our blond girls, light blond, pale skin and deep blue or magic green eyes. You also have the Sami people (also known as the Sámi or the Saami) are a Finno-Ugric people inhabiting Sápmi, which today encompasses large parts of Norway and Sweden, northern parts of Finland, and the Murmansk Oblast of Russia.
You have a lot of beautiful blond, brunette, black hair, but also Asian, coloured, Black (African and Caribbean), Middle eastern, Slavic and Southern-European women in Western-Europe John and Karl. The Scandinavian blondes are close to the German, Dutch, Belgian, Luxemburgian, Northern-French and English (British) blond girls and women. But slightly more nordic. I can say that I have positive experience with Scandinavian women and girls from Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Once on a long plane flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town (via Johannesburg) I sat next to a Norwegian woman, and due to a 13 hours conversation with her I learned a lot about the Norwegian people, culture, history, country and mentality. She told me the Norwegians have a great oral singing tradition. Norwegians like to sing and our proud of their Nordic Scandinavian culture, and they are close to the Swedes and Danes.
I have to say that for me these Danish girls look similar to Dutch girls I saw and see in Arnhem, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, Nijmegen, Den Bosch, Eindhoven, Breda, Tilburg, Groningen, Amersfoort, Haarlem, Castricum, Vlissingen, Middelburg and Eindhoven. Very, very similar, from Yellow blond, to high white (platinum) blondes. Both Dutch and Danish girls are very tall (long) and have deep blue eyes. I think you also have Frisian and Scandinavian and Low Saxon influences in the Holland and Zeeland regions of my Netherlands, due to the Viking raids in the middle ages and the migration of the Saxons and the Angles to the British isles during the Middle ages.
The same story as with the Danish and Dutch girls. Fact is that thousands of Dutch farmers and others immigrated to Norway during the decades after the Second World War.
Björk Guðmundsdóttir (/bjɜːrk/; Icelandic: [ˈpjœr̥k] (About this sound listen); born 21 November 1965) is an Icelandic singer, songwriter, composer, actress, record producer, and DJ. Over her four-decade career, she has developed an eclectic musical style that draws on a range of influences and genres spanning electronic, pop, experimental, classical, trip hop, IDM, and avant-garde music, while collaborating with a range of artists and exploring a variety of multimedia projects.
Born and raised in Reykjavík, she began her music career at age 11 and first gained international recognition as the lead singer of the alternative rock band the Sugarcubes, whose 1987 single "Birthday" was a hit on US and UK indie stations and a favorite among music critics. After the band’s breakup, Björk embarked on a solo career in 1993 with the pop albums Debut and Post (1995). Initially being branded as a "pixie" by press, she boldly changed her artistic direction with the 1997 album Homogenic, adopting a much darker sound and image. Her follow up albums, Vespertine (2001) and Medúlla (2004), were much more toned down in nature, described by Björk herself as more “introverted”.
Several of Björk's albums have reached the top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart, the most recent being Vulnicura (2015). Björk has had 31 singles reach the top 40 on pop charts around the world, with 22 top 40 hits in the UK, including the top 10 hits "It's Oh So Quiet", "Army of Me", and "Hyperballad". She is reported to have sold between 20 and 40 million records worldwide as of 2015. She has won the 2010 Polar Music Prize from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music in recognition of her "deeply personal music and lyrics, her precise arrangements and her unique voice." Björk was included in Time Magazine's 2015 list of the 100 most influential people in the world. She was ranked both sixtieth and eighty-first in Rolling Stone's 100 greatest singers and songwriters lists respectively. Björk also won five BRIT Awards, and has been nominated for 14 Grammy Awards.
Outside her music career, she starred in the 2000 Lars von Trier film Dancer in The Dark. She won the Best Actress Award at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, and was nominated for an Academy Award for her soundtrack contribution, "I've Seen It All". Her 2011 album Biophillia was marketed as an interactive app album with its own education program. Björk has also been an advocate for environmental causes in her home country Iceland. A full-scale retrospective exhibition dedicated to Björk was held at the New York Museum of Modern Art in 2015.
Björk was born on 21 November 1965 in Reykjavík, where she grew up. Björk's mother is activist Hildur Rúna Hauksdóttir, who protested against the development of Iceland's Kárahnjúkar Hydropower Plant. Björk's father is Guðmundur Gunnarsson, a union leader and electrician. They divorced when Björk was born and she moved with her mother to a commune. Her stepfather is Sævar Árnason, a former guitarist in a band called Pops. At six, Björk enrolled at Reykjavík school Barnamúsíkskóli, where she studied classical piano and flute. After a school recital in which Björk sang Tina Charles' 1976 hit "I Love to Love", her teachers sent a recording of her singing the song to the RÚV radio station – then, Iceland's only radio station. The recording was nationally broadcast and, after hearing it, a representative of the Fálkinn record label offered Björk a recording contract. Her self-titled début, Björk, was recorded and released in Iceland in December 1977 when she was 11 years old.
I like this former Danish prime minster and love her Danish English accent, which I find very charming. The same counts for Sidse Babett Knudsen's Danish English accent. I dislike Dutch english accent, but love the Danish english accent, German English accent, French English accent and charming slavic English accents.
