Geoffroy

European - A king of Denmark. Father of Ogier by his first wife. Father of Guyon by his second wife. He failed to make the obligatory obeisance to the Emperor and, when Charlemagne threatened war, he sent Ogier to the court as hostage for his future good behaviour. When his kingdom was invaded, he sought help from Charlemagne who sent an army, led by Ogier, which soon repelled the attacking forces. He died a natural death, not living long enough to celebrate the victory. Also commonly called Geoffroy, Godfrey or Godfrey.
