    King Knut, hardly yet of middle age, and the greatest King in the then world, died at Shaftesbury, inas Dahlmann thinks[16],--leaving two legitimate sons and a busy, intriguing widow Norman Emma, widow of Ethelred the Unreadymother of the younger of these two; neither of whom proved to have any talent or any continuance. But the King adhered to the established practice of parliamentarism and decided to appoint Christopher Hornsrud the first Labour Prime Minister. Magnus was triumphantly received as King in Denmark. It is from these sources that the following rough notes of the early Norway Kings are hastily thrown together. In Snorro the story is involved in miracle, rumor, and fable; but the fact itself seems certain, and is very interesting; the great, wild, noble soul of fierce Olaf opening to this wonderful gospel of tidings from beyond the world, tidings which infinitely transcended all else he had ever heard or dreamt of!

    He it was who got Iceland, which had been a Republic for four centuries, united to his kingdom of Norway: a long and intricate operation,--much presided over by our Snorro Sturleson, so often quoted here, who indeed lost his life by assassination from his sons-in-law and out of great wealth sank at once into poverty of zero,--one midnight in his own cellar, in the course of that bad business. Tryggveson had already ships and navies that were the wonder of the North. Translation of famous Anglo-Saxon poem about Scandinavian kings. Gylle started parallel to Magnus's stirrup; ran like a very roe, and was clearly ahead at the goal. Dicit possit eam an, liber vocent accusata vim ei. One of the last scuffles I remember of Olaf's having with his refractory heathens, was at a Thing in Hordaland or Rogaland, far in the North, where the chief opposition hero was one Jaernskaegg "ironbeard" Scottice "Airn-shag," as it were!

    There arose avenging kinsfolk of Magnus, who had no Irish accent in their Norse, and were themselves eager enough to bear rule in their native country. A comb-maker King, evidently meaning several good and solid things; and effecting them too, athwart such an element of Norwegian chaos-come-again. Which entirely disheartened the Thing from fighting at that moment; having now no leader who dared to head them in so dangerous an enterprise. In Frederick III introduced absolute monarchy in Denmark and Norway and introduced new laws in both countries to that effect.

By one of these,--a terribly stronghanded, fighting, violent, and regardless fellow, who also was a Bastard of Magnus Barefoot's, and had been made The early kings of Norway book Priest, but liked it unbearably ill, and had broken loose from it into the wildest courses at home and abroad; so that his current name got to be "Slembi-diakn," Slim or Ill Deacon, under which he is much noised of in Snorro and the Sagas: by this Slim-Deacon, Gylle was put an end to murdered by night, drunk in his sleep ; and poor blind Magnus was brought out, and again set to act as King, or King's Cloak, in hopes Gylle's posterity would never rise to victory more.

Palnatoke is the title of a tragedy by Oehlenschlager, which had its run of immortality in Copenhagen some sixty or seventy years ago. You will be able to unsubscribe at any time. Svein, Eric, and the Swedish king, with their combined fleets, lay in wait behind some cape in a safe little bay of some island, then called Svolde, but not in our time to be found; the Baltic tumults in the fourteenth century having swallowed it, as some think, and leaving us uncertain whether it was in the neighborhood of Rugen Island or in the Sound of Elsinore.

This new sea expedition became an object of attention to all neighbors; especially Queen Sigrid the Proud and Svein Double-Beard, her now king, were attentive to it.

After his death at the age of 17 his mother Margrethe united the three Scandinavian kingdoms in personal union under one crown, in the Kalmar Union.

Thangbrand, I find, lodged with Hall of Sida familiar acquaintance of "Burnt Njal," whose Saga has its admirers among us even now. The Finnmarken " Marches of the Sami "most of which paid tribute to the kings of Norway, are shown in pink.

Now just about the time when Tryggveson, spy, and party had landed in Norway, and were advancing upon Lade, with what support from the public could be got, dissolute old Hakon Jarl had heard of one Gudrun, a Bonder's wife, unparalleled in beauty, who was called in those parts, "Sunbeam of the Grove" so inexpressibly lovely ; and sent off a couple of thralls to bring her to him.

Him all testimony represents to us as a most righteous no less than most religious king. It is counted, by the latest commentators, to have been about A.

Olaf, the skilful captain he was, need not have despaired to defend his Norway against Knut and all the world. He, to sit, for example, in the High Seat alone; King Harald opposite him in a seat not quite so high, though if a stranger King came on a visit, both the Norse Kings were to sit in the High Seat.

The King relies on the advice of the previous prime minister and the President of the Storting in this question. One example of the negative financial situation is that Prince Carl had been promised a Royal Yacht when he accepted the throne, but this was not fulfilled until Take a sample or two of that wonderful conversion process:— At one of his first Things he found the Bonders all assembled in arms; resolute to the death seemingly, against his proposal and him.

Sunbeam of the Grove, when next demanded of her Bonder, has the whole neighborhood assembled in arms round her; rumor of Tryggveson is fast making it the whole country.

He was told of a wonderful Christian hermit living strangely in these sea-solitudes; had the curiosity to seek him out, examine, question, and discourse with him; and, after some reflection, accepted Christian baptism from the venerable man.
