Eric, son of Steinchetel, in Swedish Erik Stenkilsson, was King of Sweden 1066–67, a son of King Stenkil and a Swedish princess. After the death of King Stenkil, he made war on Eric the Pagan (King of Sweden 1066–67) for the Swedish throne. Both died in the war. The two rivalling Eriks are only known by their first name and from one source (Adam of Bremen). The family connection with Stenkil and the opponent's pagan belief are thus conjectural.

Referring to Erik Stenkilsson as King Eric VII or VIII are later inventions, counting backwards from Eric XIV (1560–68). He and his brother Charles IX (1604–1611) adopted numerals according to a fictitious history of Sweden. The amount of Swedish monarchs named Eric before Eric XIV (at least seven) is unknown, going back into prehistory, and none of them used numerals. It would be speculative to try to affix a mathematically accurate one to this king.
