Life of a Monarch - #LoM #CK3
Because of his relationship to Canute the Great, Svend was a pretender to the throne of Denmark from his early years. When king Harthacanute died in 1042, he claimed the Danish throne, but lost to Norway's King Magnus I, who made Svend a jarl instead http://pbs.twimg.com/media/EjkuXoSXgAAjPLN.jpg
