Lange Forlag has inspiration from solid geological research, dating back to the 900s! We are very proud of our history!
Our oldest ancestor in a direct line, Gorm the old (also Vurm) was born sometime in the late 800s and died in 958. Gorm was the first official king of Denmark and ruled from 936 to 958. (Gorm’s father was probably Knud I Hardeknut) Gorm ruled the land from Jelling. Gorm married Thyra Danebod from England and was the father of Knud Gormsson (Knud Dana-Ast), Harald Bluetooth, and Gunhild Gormsdotter.
Gorm raised one of the Jelling Stones in honor of his wife.
Written on the stone; “ᚴᚢᚱᛘᛦ ᚴᚢᚾᚢᚴᛦ ᚴ(ᛅᚱ)ᚦᛁ ᚴᚢᛒᛚ ᚦᚢᛋᛁ ᛅ(ᚠᛏ) ᚦᚢᚱᚢᛁ ᚴᚢᚾᚢ ᛋᛁᚾᛅ ᛏᛅᚾᛘᛅᚱᚴᛅᛦ ᛒᚢᛏ” The text on the stone has got two interpretations, partly “King Gorm made this stone after his wife Thyra, Denmark’s protector”, but also “King Gorm, Denmark’s protector, made this stone after his wife Thyra”.
Gorm is described as a cruel man and was highly hostile to all Christians. He planned to completely eradicate Christianity in Denmark. He expelled priests from his lands and also killed many under torture. However, this would change when his son, Harald Bluetooth, took over the kingdom. He introduced Christianity to Denmark, and also raised the second Jelling Stone, to the honor of his parents, celebrating his conquest of Denmark and Norway and his conversion of the Danes to Christianity.
In our family, women have been very strong and sometimes had rather great power. For example, legends say Queen Thyra made sure that Denmark was not invaded by extending the famous wall, Dannevirke. Grandmother, Erna Kirkegaard, did not let the German soldiers take supplies from her home during World War II. She had 9 children to take care of, and her husband Hans Peter Svendsen. But even though she was very strict towards the Germans, she felt sorry for the young boys fighting and therefore gave them food and shelter the family could spare. During the little spare time they had, Erna and Hans Peter practiced amateur theater.
