This city had for a long time been the sole intermediary in the trade between western Europe and Russia and the East. It had thus become the wealthiest city in the North. The city boasted of magnificent churches and numerous massive residences and within their strong city walls the people felt secure. But a stronger came and with him came disaster. Waldemar triumphed and the Danes entered the city. The three largest ale casks were set up in the market place to be filled with gold and silver by the people of Visby. After having placed Danish bailiffs in the island Waldemar sailed home. But one of the ships on which he had placed the booty is said to have perished in the waves. - Carl Grimberg.
