The archbishop of Bremen-Hamburg Unni came to the danish royal town Jelling to receive permission to christian mission in Denmark.
Gorm the old rejected him with a tough attitude, but his son Harald Bluetooth treated Unni friendly and allowed him to preach on the Danish islands.

Gorm the old was probably born between 908 and 918 and probably a son of the founder of the Jelling dynasty Knud 1. Hardeknud Svendsen, which after 900 took control over West Denmark.
Henry the Fowler died on 2 July 936 in the palladium in Memleben, by then all German peoples were united in a single kingdom. He was buried at Quedlinburg Abbey, established by his wife Matilda in his honor.
The son of Hardeknud, Gorm the old killed Gnupa and the queen Tyre with the nickname reinforced Dannevirke. The son of Gnupa,Sigtryg was driven out of Denmark.
