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

    MAGNUS III, Jarl of Orkney and Earl of Caithness 1256 to 1273. He was at Bergen when King Hakon IV (1217 to 1263) started in May 1263 on his expedition to the Western Isles and was given a good longship; but he was left behind in Orkney when the King started south for the raid in the Firth of Clyde which ended after the engagement at Largs 2 Oct. 1263. The King returned to Orkney on 29 Oct., took to his bed and died at Kirkwall, 16 Dec. 1263. Jarl Magnus III seems to have returned to Norway, perhaps with the body of King Hakon IV, as King Magnus VI sent "one of his best fighting captains, the Baron Ogmund Kraekidanz," to Orkney ‘with power to guard the land" in 1264. Nothing further is recorded about Jarl Magnus III Gibbonsson except that he entered into a contract of privileges with King Magnus VI and the date of his death in 1273. He left two sons, Magnus and John. [Complete Peerage, X:Appendix A:29]
