Terra Scania

Terra Scania, or Skåneland, once constituted the eastern part of the Danish kingdom. In the Treaty of Roskilde (1658) it was permanently ceded to Sweden. It is made up of the Swedish provinces of Scania, Hallandia and Blechingia. Geographically located in the south of Sweden, usually considered as a part of Götaland and bordering to the provinces of Westrogothia and Smalandia.

By the Treaty of Roskilde the Kingdom of Denmark-Norway also ceded the province of Bahusia to Sweden. Bahusia was a part of Norway and not a part of Terra Scania.
