    ---------------------------------

    EARLDOM of CAITHNESS (III) 1080?

    NORSE PREDECESSORS of the EARLS of ORKNEY - subject to King of Norway until after 1379

    HAKON Paulsson was Regent of Orkneys and the Sudreys (? also of Caithness) for Sigurd Magnusson, Spring 1099 to (?) Spring 1105, when he went to Norway and was invested by King Sigurd I with the title of Jarl of Orkney. He was thus sole Jarl of Orkney until his first cousin Magnus Erlendsson secured investiture as Jarl of half Orkney from Eystein I Magnusson, co-King of Norway (1103-1122). At first the two cousins ruled together amicably and united against Duffnial, described as their second cousin, who "fell before them" ; but finally they quarrelled and Hakon took Magnus prisoner on Egilsay and put him to death (16 Apr. (?) 1117). Thereafter Hakon was sole Jarl of Orkney until his death (? 1126). The name of his 1st wife is not recorded. By her he had a son Paul the Silent. By his 2nd wife, Helga, dau. of Moddan of Dalr in Caithness, and sister of Jarl Ottar in Thurso, he had Harald I Slettmali (Smooth-spoken) and two daughters. [Complete Peerage, X:Appendix A:17]
