Gyrd and Gnupa

Knut I. (Danish Knud, also Knuba, Gnupa or Chnuba, birth and date of death unknown) was, according to Widukind of Corvey 934 King of Denmark, when he was defeated at the Battle of Hedeby of Henry I.. Maybe he was the son of Olaf the Dreisten.

That Knut lived, also occupied by Adam of Bremen, which refers to King Sven Estridsson (1047-1076) convenes. He also mentioned on two memorial stones of his son Sigerich. Sometimes his brother Gurd is referred to as the Danish king, but this seems doubtful.

At the end of the Battle of Hedeby Knut was baptized in order to save the lives of his surviving men.
