Biggest Cities of Denmark (North Sea Empire) in 1035 on a Map

With the help of a map, can you name the most populous cities within the North Sea Empire with an estimated population of over 2,000 in 1035 AD?
Population figures are (mostly) based off this dataset by Dr. E. Buringh, La population des villes européennes, 800-1850 by Paul Bairoch and 4000 Years of Urban Growth: An Historical Census by Tertius Chandler.
One of these historical cities is considered semi-legendary.
