Biography

  • Birth: Svend I Forkbeard King of Denmark was born in 940 in Denmark.
  • Death: He died on February 3, 1013, at age ~73, in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, England.
  • Note: Sweyn I "Forkbeard" (sometimes Svein Haraldsson; in Danish, Svend Tveskg) After recovering his throne (991) following a brief Swedish invasion, Sweyn established Danish control over a part of Norway (1000). After participating in a Norwegian-led raid against England in 994-995, Sweyn embarked on a series of full-scale invasions (1003-1005, 1006-1007, 1009-1012 and 1013) following the St. Brice's Day massacre of England's Danish inhabitants (November 1002). By December 1013 he was England's effective ruler following the flight to Normandy of king Ethelred the Unready. Sweyn died at Gainsborough in Lincolnshire, having ruled England unopposed for only five weeks, and his body was returned to Denmark. He was succeeded as King of Denmark by his elder son, Harold II; the Danish fleet proclaimed his younger son Canute the Great as King of England, but they and he returned to Denmark, with Ethelred being restored. Later, Canute ruled in Denmark, England, Norway and some parts of northern Germany.
    (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Sweyn, generally called Sweyn Splitbeard, from some peculiarity observed about his beard. Nearly all of his time was spent in making expeditions to Norway, Germany and England. He was successful in his expedition to England. The impotent Anglo-Saxon King Ethelred II, called the Unready, held at this time the supreme authority in that kingdom. Sweyn obliged the English King to acknowledge his superiority and to get rid of the Danes by paying a large sum of money called Danegeld. In the beginning of his reign he persecuted Christianity, but before he expired he began to perceive his folly, and he secured the help of Poppo, a German bishop of great piety and eloquence, and persuasion brought about what the King's authority could not effect. Sweyn Splitbeard had two sons, Harold, who by right of primogeniture succeeded his father as King of Denmark, and Canute or Cnud, who at Sweyn's death was living and was elected King of the Danes there. The English, taking advantage of Canute's youth, called Ethelred II back, whereupon Canute repaired to Denmark, where he brought together a numerous host of brave soldiers and leaders and defeated King Ethelred II. The valiant Edmund Ironside, who succeeded Ethelred, was forced to yield half of England to Canute. Canute married Emma, daughter of the Duke of Normandy, widow of Ethelred. His brother Harold was a weak ruler and after 4 years Canute became King of Denmark also.

Mieszko I Prince Of Poland

M, b. circa 930, d. May 25, 992

Parents

Family: Dubravka Princess Of Bohemia (b. circa 931, d. 977)

Biography

  • Birth: Mieszko I Prince Of Poland was born circa 930 in Poznan, Poznan, Poland.
  • Death: He died on May 25, 992 in Poznan, Poznan, Poland.
  • Note: Mieszko was not his actual name, but given at a later time. The early career of Mieszko was dominated by fighting with the tribes of Wieletes and Volinians south of the Baltic Sea, and their ally, the Saxon count Wichman. Mieszko was baptised in 966 (probably under the influence of his Christian first wife or maybe in order to avoid confrontation with the Holy Roman Empire to the west) he built a church dedicated to Saint George at Gniezno. At the time of the reign of Mieszko there was no single place serving as the capital instead he built serveral castles around his country. One the most important was Ostrow Lednicki . It was a ring-fort some 460 feet in diameter. Inside his residence, a fine stone palace, the country's first monumental architecture. He had probably one sister of unknown name, and two brothers: one of them, name unknown, was killed in battle around 964; and the second, named Czcibor, died in the Battle of Cedynia in 972. Mieszko I had pledged allegiance to emperor Otto I the Great, to emperor Otto II and again to emperor Otto III, however there is much dispute from the Polish side over this fact - mainly whether he was vassal from whole Poland, or from part Poland (the disputed fragment is "usque Varta fluvium"). One medieval chronicle also mentions that Mieszko pledged allegiance to margrave Gero, but since the chronicle itself is believed to be abstract of another which does not mention that fact, this is generally accepted nowaday as myth. His reign began around 962 in Greater Poland (Wielkopolska), Cujavia, Masovia and possibly in eastern Pomerania. In the 960s he probably at least partially conquered western Pomerania, and in the 990's he conquered Silesia and Little Poland (Malopolska). Much of his military activity was along the Baltic coast, in territory later called Pomerania. He defeated Count Dietrich of the Northern March at Cedynia in 972, and reached the mouth of the Oder/Odra river in 976. The decisive battle, fought in 979, ensured Mieszko's position as ruler of the area. The following year he celebrated his temporary conquest by dedicating a fortress at Gdansk. Settlements there have existed for millenniums and Pomeranian and Prussian territories overlap at the mouth of the Vistula River. In 981 Mieszko I lost the land known only as Grody Czerwienskie to Vladimir I, prince of Kiev. In 986 he pledged allegiance to the Emperor Otto III, and helped him with wars with the Polabians. Shortly before his death he placed his state under the suzerainty of the Pope in a document usually called the Dagome Iudex.This Dagome Iudex indexes the lands of the Mieszko, referred as "Dagome" in document, and his wife, former nun Oda and her sons by him. From his first marriage he had a son, his successor Boleslaus, and a daughter(s): the wife (as queen Sigrid the Haughty) of Eric the Victorious, king of Sweden and then (as queen Gunhilda) of king Sweyn Forkbeard of Denmark, and mother of king Canute of Denmark and England. Gunhilda and Sigrida may or may not be the same person, since most of sources is generally contradicting themselves on the issues regarding their history. The name for such daughter, "Swiatoslawa", is generally accepted amongst historians as best approximation on her Slavic name. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.)
