A Short History of the Danish Conquest

by Eleanor Parker

In 1016, England was conquered by the Danish king Cnut, after a long and violent conflict which ended in England becoming part of Cnut's Scandinavian empire. Compared with the Norman Conquest, fifty years later, the Danish Conquest has always been somewhat overlooked, but it had long-lasting political and cultural consequences for England. This essay will explore the events leading up to the conquest of 1016 and reflect on its aftermath and legacy.
