I have read in Wikipedia and other sources that when Harald was quite young, he served with the elite Varangian Guard in the service of the Emperor in Constantinople. He became a noted warrior and rich.
Unfortunately, he was in prison for a short time due to " some financial irregularity " as what it is called today.
