Hardeknud, Harthacnut or Canute III was the son of Cnut (the Great) and Emma of Normandy. He became king of Denmark in 1032 and also became king of England in 1040. There are various coin types both in his name and in the name of his father. Many are based on the English style of penny, but others have a style of their own which make them very appealing. Please view the other Harthacnut page for those minted in Britain.
