Svend Tveskæg ledte et oprør mod sin far, Harald Blåtand, der blev dræbt af et pileskud.

Jomsvikingerne tog Svend Tveskæg til fange, og måtte løskøbes for en stor mængde guld.

Kong Svend forsøgte at frigøre den danske kirke fra Bremens overhøjhed, og blev derfor lagt for had af tyske gejstlige historikere.

Det meste af sin regeringstid bruger Svend Tveskæg på at udplyndre England, og han ender med at erobre hele England. De første togter til England foregår i samarbejde med den norske høvding Olav Tryggveson. Siden bliver de uvenner, og danskerne og svenskerne indgår i en alliance mod Norge, og i år 1000, i slaget ved Svold falder Olav, og Svend Tveskæg bliver overherre i Norge.


He was feudal overlord of the district of Crawford, which was held of him by his powerful vassal William de Lindsay.1 In 1188/89 he settled in Perthshire, when he granted lands in Gowrie to the monks of Scone.

The name Sweyn may be a british version of the Norwegian / Swedish i.e. Norse name Svein which means boy or young man. Thor-aldus is a combined name with Norse roots, based on the god-name Thor i.e. thunder after which also thursday has its name.

Notes ◦also known as Swane of Swinton. Thought by some to be the namegiver to Swinton (Swane's town).
