    Where Harald is concerned, he inherited the realm of Vestfold an a aggressive aquisition and disposition under the regency of his Uncle 870-880 there abouts
     First he had to fend off rivals (he is a minor king at this time). There are many scores to be paid off against the memory of his father
    Under his Uncles tutelage, Harald establishes himself in Vestfold and makes himself Master of the neighbouring kingdom too. There is a quote here "The blood-red stem had taken root (p53)
     Concerning the name Mophead After he had defeated most of his near rivals, he met a princess called Gyda of Hordaland, she told him that she could not marry petty kingling who did not have a proper kingdom to his name, He swore not cut or comb his hair until he had subdued the whole of Norway. Eventually, he succeeded, and and Gyda was impressed enough to join him (along with the other wives and concubines he had)
     On the meeting Earl Rognvold clipped his hair, unclipped for 10 years says the Saga says, and the nickname became Finehair (They are said to have jet black hair).
     He managed to come to terms with Earl Hakon Grjotgarsson. 
     The Vestfold now under control He set about taking the South West which was owned by a powerful Sea king known as Kjotvi the wealthy. A very important area now bounded bounded between Bergan and Stavanger.bit by bit from his home in Trondelag, he pushed further South beating any operistion he came across his path. The moment came when he had to meet his main rivals fleet at Hafrsfjord (West of Stavanger). The battle one and it is said many a sea king met his death that day, he could truely call himself King of Norway.
     Magnus dates the battle at 890, but most believe 880-890. (So well after the 845 Raids of Ragnar and Horik).
    about any typos, and other things are almost correct but I don't have the keyboard to add omlauts etc.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Hope your sober.. are you a real Priest by any chance.. you do know we kicked the catholic church out after they were using our people like slaves in the 13th century don't you?. you got away that until 1985 in Ireland too until you joined the EU. Check the magdalen sisters.. kidnap, slavery, selling of children all crimes under EU law.... I did laugh when I played this and saw where the so called priest came from .. Clonfert they had a battle against Cork BEFORE the vikings came and took over Ireland, and left all the Cork priests dead.... The idea of him going to getting to Vinland in his coricle gives me fits of laughter. Lets face it, there is real history, then there is "History" as the catholic church would like it to have been. You have a lot yet to learn about REAL history.

    @jarl_siberg Harald Fairhair/Finehair, as depicted in the Icelandic sagas, apparently had no official business/dealings with Anglo-Saxon England. The sagas confine his story primarily to Scandinavia, and as you may have noticed, the story and geographical scope of AC Valhalla does not facilitate the likelihood of interaction with Norwegian royalty. While AC games are not known for being entirely accurate with respect to history, there is still a degree of reasonable probability that is expected in the fictional world experienced through the ‘Animus’, but if the game were to have justified a reason to display a ‘coronation’ of King Harald, I highly doubt anything more than that would have been explored.
