  • ABOUT THE KING

    Erik, also known as Eric the Good. Eric was born in the town of Slangerup in North Zealand (Denmark) - the largest Danish Island.  Erik was well liked by the people and the famines that had plagued Denmark during Olaf Hunger's reign ceased. For many it seemed a sign from God that Erik was the right king for Denmark. Erik was a good speaker, people went out of their way to hear him. After a ting assembly concluded, he went about the neighborhood greeting men, women and children at their homesteads. He had a reputation as a loud man who liked parties and who led a rather dissipated private life. 

    King Erik announced at the Viborg assembly that he had decided to go on pilgrimage to the Holy Land.  

    Erik and a large company traveled through Russia to Constantinople where he was a guest of the emperor. While there, he became ill, but took ship for Cyprus anyway. He died at Paphos, Cyprus in July 1103.
