Canute the Great, illustration from a medieval manuscript
  • Summer: The Dane Knut the Great , who asserts his claim to power after his father Sven Gabelbart, who died the previous year, invades England with an invading army and fights King denthelred, who has returned from exile .
  • Autumn: Olav II. Haraldsson becomes King of Norway . In a personal encounter in Fjaler , he prevails against Håkon Eiriksson , the viceroy of Sven Gabelbart, who died last year . The meeting is described differently in the sources. The Skalde Sigvat Tordsson describes the meeting as a friendly discussion about the future role of Olav and Håkon in Norway. Snorri Sturluson, on the other hand, describes in his Heimskringla that the first encounter was quite hostile and ended with Håkon's temporary capture. He was only released against the promise to leave the country and not to return. Håkon then went to England and was mentioned there in many English documents.
