King Gorm The Old
ABOUT THE KING
King Gorm was a Danish Viking, member of the "Grand Army" campaign during which he gained considerable fame. The Viking of non-famous origin, who had risen through his intelligence and military talents, was a pragmatic and prudent man. As a result, he became king and gave inherited power. The nickname "Old" was given to him by modern historians to distinguish from the other king of East Anglia, Guthrum.
