Denmark Erik V "Klipping" civil war coinage 1259 - 86

£90.00

Eric V "Klipping" (1249-November 22, 1286) was King of Denmark (1259-1286) and son of Christopher I. Until 1264 he ruled under the auspices of his mother Queen
Dowager Margaret Sambiria. Eric Klipping was assassinated on November 22, 1286
The king?s nickname ?Klipping? or ?Glipping? refers to a medieval coin that has become ?clipped? (a "clipped penny") or cut in order to indicate devaluation. A former popular explanation - that Eric blinked more than usual (Danish ?glippe?) ? is now generally rejected.
