- ↑ Dansk konge med sæde i Jelling; havde også tilnavnet "Løge", d.v.s. "den
dvaske". Han var gift med Thyra og rejste sten over hende i Jelling, hvor de
begge begravedes i kæmpehøje. Sønnen Harald Blåtand rejste dem den store
Jelling-sten. Det var formentlig også Harald, der lod deres lig flytte ind i en
grav under Jellingkirkens gulv.
