Tylöskog is a deep and extensive forest between the agricultural plains of the counties of Närke and Östergötland in southeast Sweden. Together with Tiveden to its west and Kolmården to its east, it famously constituted the wartorn frontier between the Swedes in Svealand and the Geats in Götaland during the formation of the Swedish nation in the 13th century. The name is derived from Tylö, a small locality in the forest (the suffix skog meaning forest in Swedish).
