Poster with the painting King Gustav Vasa of Sweden Addressing Men from Dalarna in Mora (Swedish title: Gustav Vasa speaks to the valley men in Mora). In the painting from Mora from December 1520, Gustav Vasa urges the valley men to rebel against the Danish customer Kristian II who then ruled Sweden.

The Dalkarlars were less keen on rebelling, and Gustav Vasa was then forced to flee to Sälen to escape Kristian II's men who were chasing him. It was some day before the valley men repented and sent a number of men on skis after the fleeing Gustav Vasa to offer their support in Sälen in his rebellion against the Danish king.

Three years later, the Danish king's rule was over and Gustav Vasa was elected Sweden's new King and on Midsummer's Day in 1523, Gustav Vasa, who was elected king at a parliament in Strängnäs, marched into the capital. He is greeted with pomp and circumstance when he rides into the Palace in Stockholm.

The story of Gustav Vasa's escape to Sälen later became the background for the today immensely popular Vasaloppet.
