The grave of King Sven and his supposed mother

One of the most fabled cases of false maternity has been solved by mitochondrial DNA analysis. Sven II Estridsen (1020-1074 AD), the last Viking king of Denmark and ancestor of all subsequent Danish kings, was buried in Roskilde Cathedral. Here lie the bodies of other Danish kings. According to legend, Sven's mother was buried in a pillar opposite the chapel. Analysis of mitochondrial DNA proves that this person was not Sven's mother.
Sven Estridsson belonged to haplogroup H in the maternal line.
