About Eric V Klipping, King of Denmark

Erik "Klipping" of Denmark (Estridsøn), King of Denmark, (NB, the only Danish king that was named Estridsen was Svend Estridsen,, and yes, it doesn't exist any dynasty called that either, yet, some curators goes bananas if anyone deletes this totally misguiding suffix Estridsøn in this profile. It doesn't belong here in this profile at all and it does more harm than good, as someone actually might come to believe that his mother's name was Estrid).


Predecessor: Christopher I Successor: Eric VI "Menved"
