Storyboard Text

  • Harald Hardara was born in 1015 in Ringerike, in Norway
  • When Harald was 15 he was in his first battle at Sticklestad and in that battle his half-brother Olaf was killed
  • When he arrived he set up defences near the River Humber. Harold Godwinson heard word that Harald Hardrada had arrived and so Harold Godwinson marched his way down to Yorkshire to meet Harald Hardrada in the Battle of Stamford Bridge. Harald was brutally killed by Harold Godwinson's men.
  • He fled to Constantinople to work for the Byzantine Empire, where he quickly became commander
  • After he became King of Norway he got married to Tora Torbergsdatter (Elisiv of Kiev)
  • He travelled to England because Edward the Confessor promised him the throne of England and Edward had just died so he went to claim it,  but apparently he promised a lot of people the throne.
