Canute of Jutland
Canute Of Jutland (or SLESWICK), Saint and Martyr (called Lavard), nephew of the foregoing, and king of the Obotrites, or people of Hsolstein, was murdered by his cousin Magnus Jan. 7, 1131. The festival of his translation is celebrated on July 10. It would be hard to give any sufficient reason why either of these two princes has been reckoned among the martyrs of the Church, their deaths having clearly occurred from political causes.
