King Canute (Danish: Knud) became King of Denmark, Norway and England. In 1016AD he conquered most of England after successfully forcing King Æthelræd II (aka. Ethelred the Unready) in to exile in Normandy. After Æthelræd's brother and successor King Edmund Ironside died, Canute ruled all of England.

Canute died in 1035AD and was succeeded as King of England by his son Harold I (Harold Harefoot).
