Historical Context in Hamlet

Im looking for historical context in hamlet and no im not just coming here for free answers iv done my fair share of research.

I know that plot of Hamlet is based on stories of a Danish prince, Amleth
The vikings comnig to Denmark
Limited Monarchy when Eric Klipping was crowned king of Denmark at 11
How chivalry was used
How he borrowed ideas from the Thomas Kyd The Spanish tragedy
The constant fight for the throne in england

Im looking for either events that were current while Shakespeare was writing hamlet or previous events world wide or danish history that may have influenced him.

Thanks ST,
