Excerpt from Historical Abstracts: Being Outlines of the History of Some of the Less Known States of Europe

The Scandinavian kingdoms were thus constituted. They were still however remote and barbarous, and they did not attract the attention of Europe. But their inhabitants had already begun to win abroad the fame which was denied to them at home. Their soil too sterile to support them, their ocean so present everywhere as though to tempt them, had been inciting causes of migration. The internal struggles of tribe with tribe, their exclusion from the continent by the arms of Charlemagne, the conquests of Gorm and' Harold within their own peninsula, and the necessity of refuge or the pursuit of independence for the vanquished, had added further motives. There now poured forth successive expeditions which carried the fame of the Northmen to the remotest lands. Every sea was made a high road, every river a path, in their career of conquest. From the shores of Green land to those of Attica their name was spread, and the thrones of England, and of Normandy, of Naples, and of Russia, became the splendid prizes of their arms.
