How powerful has Denmark been in the historical terms compared to other Germanic countries?

Are Danes considered Norse? I hear them referred to in that way alot but I thought Norse meant Norwegian?

Also, it seems that when speaking of Vikings, the Danes are mentioned as much as the Norwegians? Why is that? I was under the impression that there were many Danish Vikings?

Alot of questions I know, but i'm just curious. Any answer i get will be appreciated.
Denmark was the cradle of the Teutonic/Germanic peoples. This is greater than just the Danish Vikings.
