Is the Danish king who gave his name to Bluetooth buried in Poland? | Technology


WIEJKOWO, Poland (AP) — More than 1,000 years after his death in present-day Poland, a European king whose nickname lives on thanks to wireless technology is at the center of an archaeological dispute.

Medieval chronicles say that King Harald “Bluetooth” Gormsson of Denmark acquired his nickname from a tooth, probably dead, that looked bluish. A chronicle from the time also indicates that the Viking king was buried in Roskilde, Denmark, at the end of the 10th century.
