Harald 998. [Parents]

MISC: According to the medieval historian, Snorri Sturluson, Harald Grenske (Greenlander) was king of Westford in Norway, and went on a couple of viking expeditons to the Baltic.

OCCUPATION: Made under-king of Vingulmar, Vestfold, and Agdir abt 960 by Harald, "Bluetooth", King of Denmark

DEATH: Murdered abt 995 by foster sister Sigrid Storrada, "the Haughty"


Harald was fostered by Hroi, the White, a king's steward in Greenland. After his father's death, he first fled to the Uppland District and next to Sweden to see about joining a Viking expedition with Skoglar Tosti.


The following was contained in a post-em by Curt Hofemann,

aka: Haraldr Grenske Guðrøðarson of Vestfold

Apparently it's "Grenlander" not Greenlander: [Note: I am sure that Curt is correct in this, but Ancestral Roots, Turton, and other sources seem to Anglicize his name to "Greenlander".]

Harald Grenske (Grenske is a derivation for Grenland, which is a district in southern Telemark County) [Ref: Medieval Scandanavia:]

Harald Grenlander (or Grenske), a subking in Grenland. Grenland is in southern Telemark County, around the cities of Porsgrund and Skien. [Ref: Hevard Moe 17 Jan1996 msg to Gen-Medieval]

Harald was a local king in Vestfold, but what he liked best was to go on Viking journeys to the East. He was also unfaithful to his wife Åsta. While he was staying in Sweden, he made a proposal of marriage to Sigrid Storråde. She refused. But when he kept on insisting, she saw to it that he was burnt to death in his room. When this happened Åsta was pregnant with Olav. [Ref: Saint Olav - King of Norway:]

Following is from Brian Stewart at citing: Heimskringla, Saga of Harald Grafeld and of Earl Hakon son of Sigurd:

0960: was made Underking of several Norwegian regions by Harald "Bluetooth" of Denmark summer 0963: fled to the Uplands, and with him his foster-brother Hrane Vidforle (the Far-travelled), and a few people sent to be fostered to Grenland to a lenderman called Hroe the White hunted by Eirik's sons (Harald Grafell, etc;) and was urged to to leave the country, and he therefore went eastward into Svithjod, and sought shipmates, that he might enter into company with those who went out a cruising to gather property, becoming in this way a remarkably able man

0965-0966: spent two years in the Upplands
0967-0972: spent five years in the abode of Skoglar-Toste, with whom he cruised in the summers


469893977. Estrid (Asta\Asted) GUDBRANDSDOTTIR is printed as #58736789.
