  • Notes 
    • Called "the Grenlander" but not from Greenland. Supposedly murdered by foster sister Sigrid Storrada. "Recent scholarship has questioned the historicity of Harald." [Wikipedia]

      Todd A. Farmerie, 26 Apr 2016, post to soc.genealogy.medieval:

      In Norway, probably no earlier than the father of St. Olaf (these genealogies appear to have been reworked to make the warlords who succeeded to Norway be descendants of Harald Fairhair).
