352 – Chaos


It was November 11 of 1035 and King Cnut was dead. He was buried at Winchester Cathedral.

Cnut, and likely the Court, seemed to anticipate his death. Possibly because he had been ill for some time. But the ruling classes of Europe were still completely unprepared for the chaos that followed.
