Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

He was a Danish Prince, most likely from the 12th or 13th century. He lived walled up as an anchorite (hermit), in a cell built on to the chancel. There have been various theories as to who Magnus was. The theory that he was the son of King Harold has been discounted.
Translated from Latin:

There enters this cell a warrior of Denmark's Royal race: Magnus his name, mark of mighty lineage. Casting off his mightiness, he takes the lamb's mildness, and to gain everlasting life becomes a lowly anchorite.
