About Magnus I Nilsson Nilssøn af Danmark (Estridsøn), kung av Sverige

Magnus Nilsson, Mogens Nielsen, or Magnus the Strong (born c. 1106 – died June 4, 1134 in the battle of Fotevik), was a Scandinavian ruler and Danish duke who reigned c. 1125-c.1130 in southern parts of Sweden ("Gothenland").

His father was king Niels I of Denmark and mother Margaret Fredkulla, the second or eldest daughter of Inge I of Sweden.

Magnus was married with Rikissa, daughter of Boleslaw III of Poland.

He claimed the throne of Sweden, when his mother's first cousin Inge II died in 1125, as he was the eldest grandson of Inge I. The Geats (Götes) accepted him king, but the Swedes vetoed him (even according to the Westrogothic law, it was the Swedes who had the right to elect and depose a king). According to Saxo Grammaticus was the legally elected king Ragnvald Knaphövde murdered by Magnus' supporters who then won the realm ("imperium"). Magnus is however not mentioned as king in the law of Västergötland or any other list of regents and he was probably ousted from Sweden, by Sverker I of Sweden.

In 1130 Magnus I of Gothenland backed Boleslaw III of Poland in conquering Rügen. Polish forces delivered by Danish fleet compelled Ranis to recognize Polish rule over the island.[1]

Later he took part in the Danish civil wars, trying to help his father king Niels and to establish himself as heir and future king there, and he died in 1134 during the battle of Fotevik in Scania where his father was decisively defeated. His father died later the same year.

Magnus' widow Rikissa returned to east where she was married to Valadar of Miensk, a Rurikid ruler of Viking origins. Rikissa later returned to Sweden and married thirdly king Sverker I, Magnus' rival and defeater.

Magnus' son, Canute V contested the Danish throne with his cousin, Svend III.

His legitimate descent went extinct with the murder of Knud V in 1157. Knud's illegitimate son Valdemar, archbishop of Bremen, bishop of Schleswig, died in 1236, after which there are no records of any surviving descent from king Magnus.

Gravvården för denne kung Magnus i Vreta är fel och får anses vara en kenotaf - hans riktiga gravplats är okänd.

Magnus Nilsson, senare kallad Magnus den starke (enligt Snorre Sturlasson), föddes 1107 som prins av Danmark, son till kung Nils och hans svenskfödda drottning Margareta, och gifte sig med Rikissa av Polen, dotter till Boleslav III.

Efter Inge den yngres död valdes Magnus till kung av Sverige i Västergötland cirka 1125, men valet accepterades inte av svearna. Han lönnmördade sin rival Knut Lavard den 7 januari 1131 och kröntes till kung av den tysk-romerske kejsaren 15 april 1134. Knappt två månader senare, den 4 juni 1134, stupade han emellertid i slaget vid Foteviken mot Erik Emune vid Fotevik i Skåne.

Det finns ett felplacerat gravmonument tillägnat kung Magnus i Vreta klosterkyrka som antagligen har tillkommit genom att Rasmus Ludvigsson förväxlade uppgifterna från fragment av en äldre gravsten med att Magnus Henriksson har sin grav någonstans i kyrkan eller ruinerna, samt att det sannolikt är riddaren Magnus Bengtsson (Folkungaätten) eller dennes sonson och namne som egentligen har sin familjegrav i koret där monumentet står-[1][2]

Magnus I of Sweden

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

King Magnus III of Sweden, in Swedish "Magnus Ladulås (Barnlock)", was at times in error called "Magnus I".

Magnus I of Sweden, son of Nicholas (Swedish: Magnus Nilsson ; Danish: Magnus Nielsen[1]), later called Magnus the Strong (born about 1106, died June 4, 1134 in the Battle of Fotevik), was a Danish duke who ruled Gothenland in southern Sweden from 1125 to 1130. His status as ruler of Sweden was disputed in his own time, but today he is recognized as one of the Swedish monarchs.[2][3]

Magnus was the son of King Niels I of Denmark and Margaret Fredkulla, the second or eldest daughter of King Inge the Elder of Sweden.

[edit]Kingship

When Margaret's first cousin King Inge the Younger died in 1125, Magnus claimed the throne as the eldest grandson of Inge the Elder. Magnus was recognized by the Geats (Göterna) of Gothenland, but according to the Westrogothic law, had to be accepted also by the Swea, another tribe to the north of the Geats. The Swea, however, had selected Ragnvald Knaphövde. According to Saxo Grammaticus, Ragnvald had shown disrespect towards the Geats by not taking a Geat hostage. As retaliation, Ragnvald was murdered by Magnus's supporters not long after.

Magnus married Rikissa, daughter of Boleslaw III of Poland around 1127. In 1130, Magnus backed Boleslaw III in conquering Rügen. The Polish forces together with a Danish fleet compelled the Rani to recognize Polish rule over the island.[4] Magnus is not mentioned as King in the law of Västergötland and was probably ousted from Sweden by his successor Sverker I of Sweden around 1130.

In 1131, Magnus had his cousin and potential rival for the Danish throne, Canute Lavard, murdered, in order to position himself as heir presumptive to his father King Niels.[1] Though he was eventually backed by Niels, Magnus found himself in a civil war against Lavard's half-brother Eric Emune.[1] He died on June 4, 1134 during the Battle of Fotevik in Scania, where his father was also decisively defeated. Niels died later the same year.

[edit]Legacy

After Magnus's death, his widow Rikissa returned to the east where she married Volodar of Minsk, a Rurikid ruler of Viking origins. She later returned to Sweden and thirdly married the man who defeated Magnus, King Sverker I.

Magnus's son, Canute V, contested the Danish throne with his second cousin, Svend III. When Canute died in 1157, Magnus's legitimate descent went extinct. Canute's elder son Niels, born by his wife Helena of Sweden, died in 1180. Canute's illegitimate posthumous son, Valdemar, bishop of Schleswig and Prince-Archbishop of Bremen, died in 1236 as the last descendant of king Magnus.
