The Norse Files - Episode 3 - Skúli Bárðarson

September 23, 2022

The conflict between Earl Skúli Bárðarson and King Hákon Hákonarson continues. Opportunities appear for the king to consolidate his authority in the North Atlantic, if he manages to contain the earl's ambitions. We follow Hákonar saga Hákonarsonar (the Saga of King Hákon Hákonarson), composed by the Icelandic poet and lawman Sturla Þórðarson, to tell the story of the consolidation of King Hákon Hákonarson and his final clash with his father-in-law and only competitor to the throne of Norway.
