QUESTIONABLE PARENTAGE

Biography

The second sub-period starts with the reign of King Harald I and the first three or four generations of his alleged descendants. The reign of King Harald is reported both in the Sagas and the Historia as improbably long and his descendants as improbably numerous. For example, according to the Historia Norwegie he reigned for 73 years and had sixteen sons. His seven successor kings of Norway, up to and including Harald III "Hardråde" King of Norway whose succession is dated to 1047, are recorded as sons of King Harald I or his second to fourth generation direct descendants in three different male lines. Little information is recorded in the sources about the ancestors of these successor kings other than their names. While the existence of the different kings can be corroborated, mainly from English primary sources, the suspicion persists that their actual family relationships to each other were much less certain than the Icelandic and Norwegian primary source documentation leads us to believe. The families of these kings who ruled before 1047 are set out in Chapter 1.B of this document, marked “Doubtful Lineage”. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/NORWAY.htm Harald Hardrada was born in 1015. Harald Hardrada Sigurdsson ... He passed away in 1066. [3]
