When did gunpowder weapons become common in Denmark (DK)?

It is difficult to say with any certainty, but a number of small hand cannons have been found in Scandinavia, dating from the later half of the 14th century and the early 15th century. By then, it must have been a relatively common weapon in Denmark.

Question in the Native Language: 
Hvornår blev krudtvåben almindelige i Danmark (DK)?

Det er vanskeligt at sige nøjagtigt, men der er fundet et antal små håndkanoner fra sidste halvdel af det 14. og begyndelsen af det 15. århundrede i Skandinavien. Krudtvåben må altså have været relativt almindelige på det tidspunkt.
