    Read "King Harald's Saga" by Snorri Sturluson available from Rakuten Kobo. This compelling Icelandic history describes the life of King Harald Hardradi, from his battles across Europe and Russia 5/5.   King Harald coolly replied, that it is an old custom for the wisest to give way; and returned to his ship. From such circumstances it was found difficult to preserve good understanding between the kings. King Magnus's men said he was in the right; but others, less wise, thought there was some slight put upon Harald in the business.

    HARALD III HARDRADI, KING OF NORWAY, by Magnús Magnússon King Harald's Saga; Harald Hardradi of Norway, from Snorri Sturluson's Heimskringla. Translated with an Introduction by Magnus Magnusson and Hermann Palsson. Heimskringla is a massive medieval history book, recounting the lives of the kings of Norway from the days when the Aesir dwelt among men to AD. It was written c. AD in Iceland, purportedly by the most famous medieval Icelandic author, Snorri Sturluson.. In Asia, east of the Black Sea, lies the city of Asgard, home of the Aesir people and ruled by Odin, a near-invincible warlord.

      Two hundred years later, in the 13 th century, when Snorri Sturluson recorded “King Olaf’s saga”, the “Long Serpent’s” oaken bones were still visible beside Trondheim Fjord, a reminder of the greatness of the Viking mariner and the boldness of the Viking warrior.”. The window display in a book shop celebrates King Harald V of Norway's birthday on Feb. 23, , in Oslo. King Harald V of Norway was 70 on Wednesday and royals from all over Europe gathered in.
