Skipper Clement led the peasants' uprising known as "Grevens Fejde" in 1534. It spread from Northern Jutland and ended in 1536 when the last 2 rebel strongholds Copenhagen and Malmø finally surrendered after a long painful siege. Clement was then executed. He was probably a naval officer for king Christian II but turned privateer still supporting his king after the nobility removed the king and elected his uncle Frederik as king. For us Northern Jutlanders Clement still is a hero and martyr.
