Saxo Grammaticus

Author Code: NSGX

Born: Mid. 12th Cent - Zealand, Denmark (?)

Died: Early 13th Cent. - Denmark (?)

Very little is known concerning Saxo's life other than he is purported to have originated in Zealand in Denmark from a family of warriors and was probably a clerk in the service of the Archbishop Absalon. He was called Grammaticus because of his eloquence in written Latin. His major work, Gesta Danorum (or The History of Denmark), which was written at the suggestion of Absalon, consists of 16 books and presents a 2000-year chronicle of Danish history. The first nine books have been translated into English and chart the lives of 60 legendary Danish kings. The remaining seven books deal with the historical period beginning with Harold Bluetooth and ending with Knud the Sixth in 1202.
