Wiekowo, Poland (AP) — More than 1,000 years after his death in what is now Poland, the European king’s nickname lives on through wireless technology and is at the center of archaeological controversy.

According to medieval chronicles, King Harald “Bluetooth” Gormson of Denmark got his nickname thanks to his bluish, presumably dead teeth. Records of the time show that the Viking King was buried in Roskilde, Denmark in the late 10th century.
