The Quiz: Which of the following is NOT a famous Viking king?
Ethelred the Unready
Cnut the Great
Explanation : Strong leadership was a key element of Viking success. Harald Bluetooth began his reign ca. 958 CE, and was notable for uniting Denmark and Norway; for this reason his name was used a millennium later to describe the wireless technology which “unites” cell phones. Sven Forkbeard was Bluetooth’s son, and the first Viking king of England, and Cnut was king of England, Denmark, and Norway.
Correct Answer: Ethelred the Unready
