Re: Prince & Jarl

Laurel wroye  "Maybe it was recinded when his first wife, Princess Florentia
d/o King Magnus of Denmark, died"

Another nit to pick

Henry was never Married to any daughter of King Magnus of Denmark.  Magnus
the Good was King 1042-1047.  He lived (1024-1047) He had two children
Ragnhild (1035-?) who Married to Haakon I 1050 and Brigitta (1047-?).  King
Magnus the Good stands out as being the Danish king who was not Danish. He
was actually a Norwegian king. According to the legend, King Magnus and King
Hardi Canute made the deal that whoever outlived the other should become
king of both kingdoms. Another part of the deal was that a male heir of any
of the two kings should inherit the joint kingdom. King Hardi Canute died in
1042, and King Magnus the Good ruled over both countries for five years.
However, both died without having a male heir, so the grandson of the
previous Danish King Sweyn I Forkbeard, namely Sweyn II Estridsen, became
the new king. The Danish Kings during Henry's life and immediately before
and their children were 1286-1319 Erik Vl Menved (1274-1319) Married to
