    From: Stewart Baldwin (sbald AT auburn.campus.mci.net)
    Subject: Danish kings, 8th & 9th centuries
    Newsgroups: soc.genealogy.medieval
    Date: 1996/11/18

    Godefrid, son of Harald [AB 852], an unsuccessful claimant to the
    Danish throne in 855. He attacked Frisia in 852 [AB], and then
    made peace with Charles the Bald in 853 [AB]. With his kinsman
    Rorik (see below), he went to Denmark in 855 [AB], in an attempt
    to gain power there after the civil war of 854, but their
    attempts were unsuccessful, and they returned to their base in
    Dorestad. It is not clear whether this Godefrid is the same
    person as the Danish Viking of that name who was active in the
    period 882-885, married Gisla (daughter of Lothar II) in 882, was
    granted lands which Rorik had previously held, and was killed in
    885. [See AF 882-5].
