Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: unknown, Denmark
Death: Feb. 3, 1014, Denmark

Scandinavian king of the 10th century, born around 960 A.D.
Sweyn I of Denmark, or Sweyn Forkbeard, was King of Denmark and England, as well as parts of Norway. He was a Viking leader and the father of Canute the Great. On his father Harald Bluetooth's death in late 986 or early 987, he became King of Denmark; in 1000, with allegiance of the Trondejarl, Erik of Lade, he was ruler over most of Norway. After a long effort at conquest, and shortly before his death, in 1013 he became King of England. For the last months of his life, he was the Danish sovereign of a North Sea empire, which only his son Cnut was to rival in northern Europe.
