King of Hounds, Hounds of Kings - From the Old Kingdom of Jelling
King of hounds, hounds of kings - from the old kingdom of Jelling. The residents of Pierpoint Irish Wolfhounds.
In the tenth century, the kings Gorm the Old and Harold Bluetooth created a monument that is unique in the Nordic context.
Gorm the Old's rune stone links the royal couple Gorm and Thyra to a kingdom called Denmark. The story continues on Harold Bluetooth's rune stone, which describes a central event in the history of Denmark: the King's acceptance of Christianity on behalf of his whole people. For that reason the stone is often called "Denmark's Certificate of Baptism".
The oldest feature is the remains of a huge ship-shaped stone circle - then came the rune stones and the mounds.
The runestone shows both the midgard serpent and christ on the cross. And this is what you se in the design of this website.
