Harald Fairhair and his Ancestors
Sir Henry Hoyle Howorth (1 July 1842 – 15 July 1923), Vice President in Viking Society for Northern Research, was a British Conservative politician, barrister and amateur historian and geologist. He says in the book:
“I PROPOSE in the following pages to describe the reign of the greatest of the Norwegian kings, who probably shares with the famous Emperor Otho the First, the reputation of being the most heroic figure in the European history of the 10th Century-namely, Harald Halfdaneson, known from the profusion and beauty of his locks, as Fairhair, the founder of the kingdom of Norway.”
Being two Papers read before the Viking Society, London, on May 4th and November 2nd, 1918. This is PART I.
