1000 Eric, from Old Norse, 'ever ruling'
2000 Feast Day of Eric, from Old Norse, 'ever ruling'. Eric IX became King of Sweden in 1150. He was a very pious, good, Christian man and systematically set about ensuring that not only his own subjects but also the neighbouring heathen Finns became Christians too. He codified Swedish law, and built the first Swedish cathedral in Uppsala. He also defended his country against Finnish attack. Unfortunately, he was murdered in 1161 by a band of Danes, abetted by some of his own treacherous countrymen.
