“Emma was the son of the Duke of Normandy.” No, she was the daughter.

Thank you for pointing out that unfortunate typo! It has been corrected.

In section entitled ‘Queen Mother and Regent’, Emma was regent from 1040 to 1042, not 1840 to 1842.

“With Harold Harefoote’s death in 1040, Harthacanute, who had lost his Norwegian and Swedish lands but who had made his Danish realm secure, became King of England. Again, Stafford surmises that from 1840 until 1842, Emma may have enjoyed regency-like authority…”
