King Canute

Millenium of King Canute
Cnut, commonly known as Canute, was crowned king of England in 1016 and reigned for nearly 20 years
as the most successful ruler of Anglo-Saxon England.
His empire covered England, Denmark, Norway, parts of Sweden and overlordship in Scotland.
At the Holy Roman emperor's coronation in Rome, Canute was at his side.

Knud den Store in Danish, which means Cnut the Great
