A Brief History of Danish
Danish started to develop from Old East Norse during the 9th century AD. The early forms of Danish are collectively known as Old Danish, and can be divided into Runic Danish/Swedish (800-1100 AD), Early Middle Danish (1100-1350) and Late Middle Danish (1350-1525).
Runic Danish/Swedish was written with the Runic alphabet and spoken in Denmark and Sweden. It started to become various languages from about 1100. Vernacular Danish started to appear in texts from the early 13th century, written with the Latin alphabet.
Danish became the language of administration during the 14th century, and absorbed many words from Low German during this time. In the 16th century Danish replaced Latin as the language of religion
In the 17th century Danish absorbed many French loanwords, and from the 19th century onwards, many English words have been taken into Danish.

Written Danish
Runic Danish (800-1100 AD) was written with a version of the Runic alphabet known as Younger Futhark. From the 11th century, the Latin alphabet was adopted, although in some areas runes remained in use.
The first written work of Danish literature was Gesta Danorum (History of the Danes) written in Latin in about 1200 by Saxo Grammaticus. This recounts the history of Denmark up to 1186 and includes Danish versions (in a somewhat Christianized form) of Scandinavian myths and sagas, including the earliest version of the Hamlet story.
The first book to be printed in Danish was Rimkrøniken (the Rhyming Chronicle), a history of Danish kings in rhymed verse published in 1495, probably by the Cisterican monastry in Sorø.
Danish began to be used a literary languge during the 16th century. In 1514 Christian Pedersen published a Danish version of Gesta Danorum, which was highly influential on subsequent Danish literature. Pedersen also published the first Danish translation of the New Testament in 1531, and a full translation of the Bible in 1550. The orthography used became the basis for standard written Danish.
