St CANATUS
Also known as CANUTE-IV

Patron Saint of Denmark

King of Sweden and relative of the more famous King Canute of 'holding back the tide' fame.

He tried to raise an army to expel the Normans but thing went very wrong. His troops deserted and then he tried to impose a tax on them for doing so whilst he retreated to a church on the Isle of Fyn.

Rebels found him and battered the church down to get at him. A well-thrown spear turned him into a martyr.
