Svend II Estridsen & Gunhild

Name: Sven 2. Estridsen

Birth: ca. 1020

Child of: Estrid

Reign: from 1047

Marriage: Gunhild (divorced after the Church demanded it as Sven and Gunhild were second cousins.)

Palle Lauring's book "Danske konge & Dronninger" mentions two more possible spouses, but it is also likely that these two were just mistresses.

Children: None in the marriage. Several out of wedlock. Palle Lauring mentions at least 15 sons - 5 of whom became kings of Denmark. (Harald Hen, Knud den Hellige, Oluf Hunger, Erik Egode & Niels)

Death: 1074

Throne passed to: Harald III Hen

Notes:




Son of Estrid, sister of Canute the Great.
