Surnames: Magnusson, Jonsson,
And if they were poisoned and not dead of plague, and what happened to their son, little Erik. And what role Bo Gryps Jonsson played in the escape of the small boy.

Yes, I said he escaped. If you want to know more, post a reply.

Thanks,
Vicki

I dont believe Erik escaped, he blamed his mother Blanche of Namur of poisoning him. If he had escaped why didnt he claim the throne?

Actually, Blanche was his grandmother. He was only 3 when Blanche killed his family, and he was spirited away by the Cistercian monks. The monks raised him in a world of peace and security. If you asked me to return to a scheming, murdering bunch of infighting "royals" and give up the only life he really remembered...leave the warm and beautiful northern Italy countryside for a land of strangers whose language he had probably forgotten, I'm thinking he didn't think it was worth it. As it was, he married a wealthy heiress, inherited a silk and agricultural estate, why leave? I wouldn't leave that for some promise of a bloody battle between people I never even knew in a foreign land, even if it was mine by right. If he wasn't raised to be greedy and power hungry, what more could a man ask for?

So did he have any family? Are their descendants of him alive ?

Surnames: magnussen, salvoni,
I encourage you to visit www.salvoni.us where you will see many of us listed. Salvoni is a very unusual name. You will also see a copy of the transcript of the letter that explains (in English and in ancient Italian) this story.

We are still trying to find official records, and my "cousin" is leaving for Italy this week to pursue this quest. He's from Lombardy and so is a native and knows his way around. He didn't find the letter in his grandfather's things until after he had moved to Canada.

If all this proves to be true, it would expose the dark side of the royals of that era, but you can find it out there today anyway if you look hard enough. My cousin is Salvoni by birth from a long line of Salvoni's that are supposed to go back to this original Magnussen. If DNA could prove a tie to the Magnussen line, I doubt if anyone would want that to be proven from their side so finding a volunteer descendant would be unlikely. Being female, all I can do is help with the web site and hope the truth is someday shown.
