    In the 940s Trygve returned from a viking expedition to the west, after harrying in Ireland and Scotland. King Haakon Haraldson appointed him to defend Vik and to take possession of lands in Denmark that Haakon had received under tribute the pastsummer. King Erik Bloodaxe's sons harried the coast of Vik and won and lost battles with King Trygve, but ousted him eventually, only to have him return in the 960s. In 963 Earl Haakon met in secret with Kings Trygve and Gutroth and they agreed to be mutual friends. He agreed with King Gutroth to go on a viking expedition, but when they met at Veggir just west of Sotaness, while conferring with Gutroth, Gutroth's men fell on him and killed him.
