    This is not correct. Roskilde Cathedral contains the toombs and graves from the year 985. But from 1536 all kings and queens have been buried here.

    These kings and queens are burried in Roskilde:

    Harald I Bluetooth, died 985.
    Sweyn Forkbeard, died 1014.
    Sweyn Estridsen, died 1074.
    Margrete I, died 1412.
    Christopher of Bavaria, died 1448.
    Christian I, died 1481.
    Christian III, died 1559.
    Frederik II, died 1588.
    Christian IV, died 1648.
    Frederik III, died 1670.
    Christian V, died 1699.
    Frederik IV, died 1730.
    Christian VI, died 1746.
    Frederik V, died 1766.
    Christian VII, died 1808.
    Frederik VI, died 1839.
    Christian VIII, died 1848
    Frederik VII, died 1863
    Christian IX, died 1906.
    Frederik VIII, died 1912.

    Actually the cathedral does not contain any graves from the 10th century. The graves of Harald 1. and Svend 1 were in the Holy Trinity Church and are lost and missing today.

    The Cathedral are however the home of four graves of Monarchs from before the reformation in 1536, that much is true. But the tradition of Roskilde as final resting place for the Royal Family did not start until Christian 3.

    And in addition to Margrete 1. there are 17 more Danish Queens buried in the cathedral:

    Dorothea (ca. 1430 - 1496)
    Dorothea (1511 - 1571)
    Sophie (1557 - 1631)
    Anne Cathrine (1575 - 1612)
    Sophie Amalie (1628 - 1685)
    Charlotte Amalie (1650 - 1714)
    Louise (1667 - 1721)
    Anna Sophie (1693-1743)
    Sofie Magdalene (1700 - 1770)
    Louise (1724 - 1751)
    Juliane Marie (1729 - 1796)
    Marie Sophie Frederikke (1767 - 1852)
    Caroline Amalie (1796 - 1881)
    Louise (1817 - 1898)
    Louise (1851 - 1926)
    Alexandrine (1879 - 1952)
    Ingrid (1910 - 2000)

    Eric 2. Emune is buried in Ribe and Knud 4. (6.) is buried in Ringsted. The graves of Harald 2. and Oluf 1. are unknown.

    Jens, du ved lige så godt som jeg at vi begge har ret idet Domkirken forblev kongelig gravkirke efter reformationen. Men Harald Blåtand ligger også begravet i den ene søjle i koret. Så derfor har også jeg ret.

    Og dronningerne tog jeg ikke med idet det var logisk for næsten alle. Undtaget er Dronning Caroline Mathilde (Christian VII) som ligger begravet i Celle i Tyskland.
