Excerpt: Cnut the Great (Old Norse: Knutr inn riki; c. 985 or 995 - 12 November 1035), also known as Canute, was a king of Denmark, England, Norway and parts of Sweden. After the death of his heirs within a decade of his own and the Norman conquest of England in 1066, his legacy was largely lost to history. Cnut was of Danish and Polish descent. His father was Sweyn Forkbeard, King of Denmark (which gave Cnut the patronym Sweynsson). Cnut's mother was the daughter of Mieszko I, the first ruler of Poland; her name may have been Swietoslawa (see: Sigrid Storråda), but the Oxford DNB article on Cnut states that her name is unknown.

His accession to the Danish throne in 1018 brought the crowns of England and Denmark together. Cnut held this power-base together by uniting Danes and Englishmen under cultural bonds of wealth and custom, rather than sheer brutality.

He had coins struck which called him king there, but there is no narrative record of his occupation. The kingship of England of course lent the Danes an important link to the maritime zone between Great Britain and Ireland, where Cnut like his father before him had a strong interest and wielded much influence among the Gall-Ghaedhil. Cnut's possession of England's archdioceses and the continental diocese of Denmark - with a claim laid upon it by the Holy Roman Empire's Hamburg-Bremen archdiocese - was a source of great leverage within the Church, gaining notable concessions from the Pope, such as one on the price of the pallium of his bishops. Cnut also gained concessions on the tolls his people had to pay on the way to Rome from other magnates of medieval Christendom, at the coronation of the Holy Roman Emperor.
