Technically Canada never actually ever became a sovereign nation. In 1867 when the British North American was first passed it allowed the creation of the dominion of Can…ada, not the nation of Canada. The dominion allowed Canada to govern herself internally but she still remained a part of the British Empire, much in the same way as Australia and New Zealand did at that time. When Britain went to war in 1914 Canada automatically had to go to war as Britain still controlled all the foreign policy of the state. It was only the passing of the Statute of Westminster in 1931 that removed this control. With the enshrining of the Charter of Rights & Freedoms in Canadian Law in 1982, its was only then that Canada became a defacto sovereign state. However in the dejure interpretation (that is legal interpretation) of sovereignty, the Dominion of Canada with the Queen of Canada as its head of state is still part of the British Empire.

Egypt became de jure independent from the United Kingdom in 1923. However, the King of Egypt was more or less a British puppet. British troops finally departed from Egypt in 1…945 and the King Farouk was overthrown in a military coup d'etat in 1954, often called the Officer's Coup. This was when Egypt became truly independent under Gamal Abdel Nasser.
Inital unification The Viking Age was characterized by expansion and emigration by Viking seafarers. According to tradition, Harald Fairhair (Harald Hårfagre) unified them i…nto one in 872 AD after the Battle of Hafrsfjord in Stavanger, thus becoming the first king of a united Norway. (The date of 872 may be somewhat arbitrary. In fact, the actual date may be just prior to 900 AD). The Kalmar Union (Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish: Kalmarunionen) is a historiographical term meaning a series of personal unions (1397-1523) that united the three kingdoms of Denmark, Norway (with Iceland, Greenland, Faroe Islands, Shetland, and Orkney), and Sweden (including a part of modern day Finland) under a single monarch, though intermittently and with a population less than 3,000,000. Denmark-Norway (Danish and Norwegian: Danmark-Norge, German: Dänemark-Norwegen) is the historiographical name for a former political entity consisting of the kingdoms of Denmark and Norway, including the originally Norwegian dependencies of Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Following the strife surrounding the break-up of its predecessor, the Kalmar Union, the two kingdoms entered into another personal union in 1536 which lasted until 1814. The corresponding adjective and demonym is Dano-Norwegian. Union with Sweden (19th century) After Denmark-Norway was attacked by the United Kingdom, at the Battle of Copenhagen it entered into an alliance with Napoleon, with the war leading to dire conditions and mass starvation in 1812. As the Danish kingdom found itself on the losing side in 1814, it was forced, under terms of the Treaty of Kiel, to cede Norway to the king of Sweden, while the old Danish-Norwegian provinces of Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands remained with the Danish crown. Norway took this opportunity to declare independence, adopted a constitution based on American and French models, and elected the crown prince of Denmark-Norway Christian Frederik as king on 17 May 1814. This is the famous Syttende Mai (Seventeenth of May) holiday celebrated by Norwegians and Norwegian-Americans alike. Syttende Mai is also called Norwegian Constitution Day. However, the decision to link Norway with Sweden caused the Norwegian-Swedish War to break out between Sweden and Norway, but as Sweden's military was not strong enough to defeat the Norwegian forces outright and Norway's treasury was not large enough to support a protracted war, and as British and Russian navies blockaded the Norwegian coast, both Norway and Sweden were forced to negotiate a settlement. Accordingly, on November 4, 1814, Norway was forced into entering the union with Sweden. Independence Christian Michelsen, a shipping magnate and statesman, Prime Minister of Norway from 1905 to 1907, played a central role in the peaceful separation of Norway from Sweden on 7 June 1905. After a national referendum confirmed the people's preference for a monarchy over a republic, the Norwegian government offered the throne of Norway to the Danish Prince Carl, and Parliament unanimously elected him king, the first king of a fully independent Norway in 586 years.

Turkey as we know it today, did not come into being until The Treaty of Lausanne (1923) established the present boundaries of Turkey, except for the disputed region of Alexand…retta. Turkey was able to exercise full sovereign rights over its entire territory, except the Dardanelles, which was demilitarized. Turkey was formally proclaimed a republic in Oct 1923, with Kemal (Ataturk) as its first president; he was reelected in 1927, 1931, and 1935. The caliphate was abolished in 1924, and in the same year a constitution was formed that provided for a parliament elected by universal manhood suffrage (extended to women in 1934), and for a cabinet responsible to parliament. However, Kemal governed as a virtual dictator, and his Republican People's party was the only legal party, except for brief periods. During the 14 years of Kemal's rule, Turkey underwent a great transformation, which changed the religious, social, and cultural bases of Turkish society as well as its political and economic structure.

When the war officially ended in 1783, Britain recognized the United States as a sovereign nation.
This is a bit of a difficult question because Switzerland pre-dates the concept of independent sovereign states. The Swiss Confederation was founded in 1291. At that time it… was an agreement for mutual self-defence between 4 small mountain cantons (states) within the German Empire who wanted to defend themselves from takeover by more powerful states and feudal rulers within the empire. Over the next few centuries Switzerland grew as new territories joined. It gradually became effectively a group of independent countries, but legally they were all parts of the German Empire. In 1648, at a peace treaty after the 30 years war, the German Empire finally recognised that the members of the Swiss Confederation were not part of the empire. This continued until Napoleon invaded. He annexed parts of Switzerland and turned the rest into a client state. The previous situation (many independent cantons) was re-instated in 1815. It was only in 1848 that the members of the Swiss confederation agreed to form a federal state and have a permanent federal government. This is when Switzerland became one country. So take your pick, Switzerland was founded in 1291, or 1648, or 1848!
