  • Name: Harald IV GILLE , King of Norway 4
  • Birth: ABT 1095 in Ireland
  • Death: 1136 in Norway 1
  • Event: Ruled 1135-1136 1
  • Note:
    Still another girl, an Irish maid, claimed to have been a concubine of Magnus. Her son, Harald, later became known as Harald Gille and ruled Norway from 1130 to 1136. His paternity has never been conclusively proven; and Magnus certainly never acknowledged him as a son. . . .

    Harald Gille's rule was short and cruel. He killed or blinded as many of Magnus' followers as he could find, first demanding their treasures. He hanged the bishop of Stavanger because the prelate could not pay the twelve gold pieces which Harald Gille demanded of him. To hang a bishop as though he were a common thief was considered one of the most heinous crimes possible.

    Haral Gille, cruel in demanding treasure, was also prodigal in spending it. He entertained lavishly but neglected his subjects and their needs.

    Although Harald Gille as a person did little for Norway, he left important descendants who were destined to rule long and become famous. [Royal Families of Medieval Scandinavia, etc.]

    Note: The Magnus mentioned above was Magnus IV Sigurdsson King of Norway (1130-35), who was blinded, mutilated, castrated & sent to a cloister by Harald.
