Scholarly Info
Description Even the king of the Danes (Swein 5), although separated by the immense distance of the intervening ocean, with ambassadors exhausted by their long travels on land and sea, entreated Edward 15's peace and love, chose him as a father, submitted himself in all things to him as a son, and by the order of the English king affirmed this agreement by oath and confirmed it with hostages.
Primary Source Info


The king was probably Magnus 1 of Norway but Barlow, fn.37 asserts that the author was most likely referring to Swein 5.
