    Eric was born in 1382 in Rügen­walde (pre­sent Darłowo, Poland). Born Bogusław, Eric was the son of Wartis­law VII, Duke of Pomera­nia, and Maria of Meck­len­burg-Schw­erin. Mar­garet I, who ruled the king­doms of Den­mark, Nor­way, and Swe­den, wanted her realm to be uni­fied and peace­ful and made pro­vi­sions in the event of her death. She chose as her heir and suc­ces­sor Bo­gus­law, the grand­son of her sis­ter In­ge­borg (c. 1365 – c. 1402).In 1389 Bo­gus­law was brought to Den­mark to be raised by Queen Mar­garet. His name was changed to the more Nordic-sound­ing Erik. On 8 Sep­tem­ber 1389, he was hailed as King of Nor­way at the Ting in Trond­heim. He may have been crowned King of Nor­way in Osloin 1392, but this is dis­puted. Eric's fa­ther Wartis­law died be­tween No­vem­ber 1394 and 23 Feb­ru­ary 1395.When Wartis­law died, his thrones were all at­tained by Eric as the heir. In 1396 he was pro­claimed as king in Den­mark and then in Swe­den. On 17 June 1397, he was crowne...

    In 1402, Queen Mar­garet en­tered into ne­go­ti­a­tions with King Henry IV of Eng­land about the pos­si­bil­ity of an al­liance be­tween the King­dom of Eng­land and the Nordic union. The pro­posal was for a dou­ble wed­ding, whereby, King Eric would marry King Henry's daugh­ter, Philippa of Eng­land, and King Henry's son, the Prince of Wales and the fu­ture King Henry V, would marry King Eric's sis­ter, Cather­ine of Pomera­nia(c. 1390–1426). The dou­ble wed­ding did not come off, but King Eric's wed­ding to Philippa of Eng­land was suc­cess­fully ne­go­ti­ated. On 26 Oc­to­ber 1406, he mar­ried the 12-year-old Philippa in Lund. The wed­ding was ac­com­pa­nied by a purely de­fen­sive al­liance with Eng­land. After Philippa's death later in 1430, King Eric re­placed her with her for­mer lady-in-wait­ing, Ce­cilia, who be­came his royal mis­tress and later his mor­ga­naticspouse. The re­la­tion­ship was a pub­lic scan­dal and is men­tioned in the royal coun­cil's of­fi­cial com­plain...

    Dur­ing the early pe­riod of his reign, King Eric made Copen­hagen a royal pos­ses­sion in 1417, thereby as­sur­ing its sta­tus as the cap­i­tal of Den­mark. He also usurped the rights of Copen­hagen Cas­tle from the Bishop of Roskilde, and from then on, the cas­tle was oc­cu­pied by him. From con­tem­po­rary sources, King Eric ap­pears as in­tel­li­gent, vi­sion­ary, en­er­getic, and a firm char­ac­ter. That he was also a charm­ing and well-spo­ken man of the world was shown by his great Eu­ro­pean tour of the 1420s. Neg­a­tively, he seems to have had a hot tem­per, a lack of diplo­matic sense, and an ob­sti­nacy that bor­dered on mul­ish­ness. King Eric was de­scribed by the fu­ture Pope Pius IIas hav­ing "a beau­ti­ful body, red­dish yel­low hair, a ruddy face, and a long nar­row neck … alone, with­out as­sis­tance, and with­out touch­ing the stir­rups, he jumped upon a horse, and all women were drawn to him, es­pe­cially the Em­press, in a feel­ing of long­ing for love". From 14...

    When the Dan­ish no­bil­ity sub­se­quently op­posed his rule and re­fused to rat­ify his choice of Bo­g­is­law IX, Duke of Pomera­nia as the next King of Den­mark, King Eric left Den­mark in re­sponse and took up per­ma­nent res­i­dence at Vis­borg Cas­tle in Got­land, which led to his de­po­si­tion through Coup d'étatby the Na­tional Coun­cils of Den­mark and Swe­den in 1439. In 1440, King Eric was suc­ceeded by his nephew Christo­pher of Bavaria who was cho­sen for the thrones of both Den­mark and Swe­den. Ini­tially the Nor­we­gian Riksråd re­mained loyal to him and wanted him to re­main king of Nor­way. In Sep­tem­ber 1439, Eric had given Sig­urd Jon­s­son the title of drottseteunder which he was to rule Nor­way in the King's name. But with the King iso­lated in Got­land, the Nor­we­gian no­bil­ity also felt com­pelled to de­pose Eric through a Coup d'état in 1440. At the death of King Christo­pher in 1448, the next monarch was Eric's kins­man, Chris­t­ian of Old­en­burg (the so...

    For ten years, Eric lived in Got­land where he fought against the mer­chant trade in the Baltic. From 1449 to 1459, Eric suc­ceeded Bo­g­is­law IX as Duke of Pomera­nia and ruled Pomera­nia-Rügen­walde, a small par­ti­tion of the Duchy of Pomera­nia-Stolp (Pol­ish: Księstwo Słupskie), as "Eric I". He died in 1459 at Darłowo Cas­tle(Ger­man: Rügen­walde Castle), and was buried in the Church of St. Mary's at Darłowoin Pomerania.

    Born Boguslaw, the son of Polish Duke of Pomerania Wartislaw VII and Mary of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Eric's paternal grandparents were Boguslaw V, Duke of Pomerania and his second wife Adelheid of Brunswick-Grubenhagen. His maternal grandparents were Henry III, Duke of Mecklenburg and Ingeborg of Denmark, Duchess of Mecklenburg. Their son Albert was a rival of Olaf Haakonssonin regard to the Danish succession in 1375. Ingeborg was a daughter of Valdemar IV of Denmark and his Queen consort Heilwig of Schleswig. Her maternal grandparents were Eric II, Duke of Schleswig (reigned 1312–1325) and Adelaide of Holstein-Rendsburg.

    Eric was born in 1382 in Rügenwalde (Darłowo). Initially named Boguslaw, he was son to the only surviving granddaughter of Valdemar IV of Denmark and also a descendant of Magnus III of Sweden and Haakon V of Norway. On 2 August 1387, Olav Håkonsson, King of Denmark since he was five years old and King of Norway since the death of his father, died unexpectedly at seventeen years of age. His mother the Dowager Queen of Norway had added the phrase "the true heir of Sweden" to Boguslaw's list of titles at his coronation. Boguslaw's claim to the Swedish throne came through his great-granduncle, Magnus IV of Sweden, who was forced to abdicate by the Swedish nobles. After the abdication, the Swedish nobles, led by Bo Jonsson (Grip), had invited Count Albert of Mecklenburg to take the Swedish throne. However, when Albert attempted to introduce reductionof their large estates, they quickly turned against him. The nobles, including his former supporter Bo Jonsson Grip, Sweden's largest landow...

    In 1402, Queen Margaret entered into negotiations with King Henry IV of England about the possibility of an alliance between the Kingdom of England and the Nordic union. The proposal was for a double wedding, whereby Eric would marry Henry's daughter, Philippa, and Henry's son, the Prince of Wales and future King Henry V, would marry Eric's sister, Katarzyna. The English side wanted these weddings to seal an offensive alliance between the Nordic kingdoms and England, which could have led to the involvement of the Nordic union on the English side in the ongoing Hundred Years' War against the Kingdom of France. Queen Margaret led a consistent foreign policy of not getting entangled in binding alliances and foreign wars. She therefore rejected the English proposals.[citation needed] The double wedding did not come off, but Eric's wedding to Philippa was successfully negotiated. On 26 October 1406, Eric married the 13-year-old Philippa at Lund. The wedding was accompanied by a purely de...

    From contemporary sources, Eric appears as intelligent, visionary, energetic and a firm character. That he was also a charming and well-spoken man of the world was shown by a great European tour of the 1420s. Negatively, he seems to have had a hot temper, a lack of diplomatic sense, and an obstinacy that bordered on mulishness. Almost the whole of Eric’s sole rule was affected by his long-standing conflict with the Counts of Schauenburg and Holstein. He tried to regain South Jutland (Schleswig) which Margaret had been winning but he chose a policy of warfare instead of negotiations. The result was a devastating war that not only ended without conquests but also led to the loss of the South Jutlandic areas that he had already obtained. During this war he showed much energy and steadiness, but also a remarkable lack of adroitness. In 1424, a verdict of the Holy Roman Empire by Sigismund, King of Germany, recognising Eric as the legal ruler of South Jutland, was ignored by the Holstein...

    In 1440, Eric, having been deposed in Denmark and Sweden, was succeeded by his nephew, Christopher of Bavaria, who had been chosen for the thrones. After he had been deposed as king in Sweden and Denmark, the Norwegian Riksrådremained loyal to him, and wanted him to remain king of Norway only. He reputedly refused the offer. Christopher, his successor, died in 1448, long before Eric himself. The next monarch (reigned 1448–81) was Eric's kinsman, Christian I of Denmark, who was the son of Eric's earlier rival, Count Theodoric of Oldenburg. To him Eric handed over Gotland in return for the permission to leave for Pomerania. From 1449–59, Eric succeeded Bogislaw IX, as Duke of Pomerania and ruled Pomerania-Rügenwalde, a small partition of the Duchy of Pomerania-Stolp (Polish: Księstwo Słupskie), as Eric I. He died in 1459 at Darłowo (German:Rügenwalde) Castle and is buried in Church of St. Mary's in Darłowoin Pomerania.
