Martyred prince of the Wends who denied the faith when his father was slain by Christian Saxons. He served in the army of King Canute of Denmark, married Canute's daughter, and became a Christian again. Taking over his former lands, Gotteschalk brought in Saxon monks and built churches. He was murdered by agents of his brother-in-law at Lenzen on the Elbe River. There is considerable doubt concerning Gotteschalk's martyrdom and sanctity.
