The fourth of the sons of Svein Estridsson who became a king of Denmark.
Founded the archiepiscopal in Lund in today's Sweden (then in Denmark.).
I was just wondering, why did this Danish King die on Cyprus?
A link to Salomonsens konversationslexikon on Erik Ejegod (in Danish unfortunately)
A link to the Danish biographical entry on Queen Bodil: http://runeberg.org/dbl/2/0460.html (also in Danish)
My Danish is sadly not very good ;). But a pelgrimage rather than one of the crusades that I expected. Why didnīt the throne pass to his son Knut?
