The Last Viking

The story of The Last Viking

The city of Bjørgvin was founded around 1070, by the King Olav Kyrre.

He is the son of the Viking King Harald Hardråde, who died at the battle of Stamford Bridge (1066), in an attempt to conquer the English throne.

(After his father’s death, Olav Kyrre became known as the peaceful and silent King, the first King that could read and write both Latin and rune.)

Now Olav Kyrre finds himself surrounded by enemies and need to find a solution to avoid a devastating battle.

William the Conqueror and the Danish King Svein has united their troops and are surrounding Bjørgvin, making an escape difficult.

William the Conqueror, a duke from Normandy and a descendant of the Viking Rollo, is now the King of England. He ascended the English throne easily after a battle against English troops, weary and reduced after the battle at Stamford Bridge- against Olav Kyrre’s father.

William is worried that another attack from the Norwegian Vikings will deprive him of the crown.

The Danish king Svein had a peace treaty with King Harald Hardråde, but no longer finds himself bound by it, now that King Harald Hardråde is dead. Together with William The Conqueror, the Danish King has united their troops and surrounded Bjørgvin.

To avoid a battle and achieve peace, King Olav Kyrre contemplates marrying the Danish King Svein`s daughter Ingerid, and unite the two kingdoms. With the support from the Danish troops William the Conqueror would not dare to challenge the Norwegians.
