Knut, or Canute, is one of the greats in English history.The Danish who became King of England, after a long period of Viking attacks and settlement, from his reign might have definitively changed the rule of Scandinavia in England by the twentieth century.The stretching of its authority throughout the North Sea to become the King of Denmark and Norway, and close ties with Ireland, and a suzerainty of Scotland, this formidable figure created a Viking Empire at least as plausible as the Anglo-Norman Empire, which would materialize in 1066.Ryan Lavelle’s illuminating book Lavelle cuts through the myths and misconceptions of exploring this fascinating and powerful man in detailKnut is the most popularly known now for the history of the king who attempted to command the waves, relegated to a small role in medieval history, but as this biography shows, he was a conqueror, a political actor, right maker and the empire builder on the largest scale, the one whose reign, says a lot about the conditional nature of history
