The horrific death of a saint revealed: King Erik of Sweden was taunted and cut repeatedly as he left mass before his head was chopped off outside a church in 1160
Saint's legend speaks of king who died in battle outside the church
Enemy swarmed him, until he lay half dead on the ground, then taunted him, before finally cutting off his head
New analysis of the royal skeleton shows claims are generally true
