Forkbeard Sweyn

Sweyn Forkbeard ( d 1014 ). King of Denmark ( 985 - 1014 ). Invaded England in 994 with Olaf Tryggvasson of Norway. He invaded again in response to the St Brice's day massacre and finally in 1013, where he was made king of Danelaw. He managed to capture London and was therefore the effective king of all England. He died a year later only to be replaced by the exiled Aethelred II. See kings.
