From the beginning, he had plans to open his own trading business, but not until 1849, after partnering with LG Rylander. It was a great success and soon became as big as Hirsch's publishing house. In 1856 Lundquist bought his partner and ran the company in his own name. Abraham Lundquist was made king in 1865. Court music dealers.

Historical Description

Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden ,borders to Norway to the west and north and Finland to the east, and is connected to Denmark in the southwest by a bridge-tunnel across the Öresund. Germanic peoples have inhabited Sweden since prehistoric times, emerging into history as the Geats and Swedes and constituting the sea peoples known as the Norsemen. With the Swedish involvement in the Thirty Years War, on the Reformist side, began an expansion of its territories and eventually the Swedish Empire was formed. This became one of the great powers of Europe until the early 18th century. Swedish territories outside the Scandinavian Peninsula were gradually lost during the 18th and 19th centuries, ending with the annexation of present-day Finland by Russia in 1809. The last war in which Sweden was directly involved was in 1814, when Norway was militarily forced into personal union. Since then, Sweden has been at peace, maintaining an official policy of neutrality in foreign affairs.
