                  In 1086, St. Canute, King of Denmark and father of Blessed Charles the Good, was slain in St. Alban's Church, Odense.   
                  Charles was five years old. He was taken to the court of Robert, Count of Flanders, his maternal grandfather.   
                  When Charles grew up, he became a knight and accompanied Robert in a crusade to the Holy Land.   
                  Charles' feast day is March 2nd.

After making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Charles was offered the crown of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. However, he refused.
