    Name Meaning

    from Old Norse Knútr ‘knot’, originally a byname given to a short, squat man. King Knut ( d. 1035 ) ruled over Denmark, Norway, and England in the 11th century; he is known in English as Canute. His great-nephew Knut ( d. 1086 ) was another king of Denmark; he was murdered by opponents of the laws enforcing payment of tithes to the Church and was canonized as a martyr. His nephew, also Knut ( d. 1131 ), was Duke of Schleswig and is also venerated as a martyr, although for what reason is not clear.
