  • Notes 
    • Harald Harefoot was Regent and King of England, and the son of Canute and ?lgifu. He assumed regency at the death of Canute in the stead of his half-brother, Hardacanute, who was then King of Denmark and the legitimate heir to the throne of England. In 1037, Harald was elected king and ruled until he died in 1040, just when his half-brother was preparing to invade England to claim his rightful crown.
