During its pre-national history, Finland was variously dominated by Sweden and then Russia, with stronger influences by Russia occurring in the early 20th century. This Russification caused pushback within Finland, with Russia's internal turmoil (in the form of the Bolshevik Revolution) providing Finland with the opportunity to declare her freedom at the end of 1917.
