King Harald’s Saga records the turbulent life of King Harald Hardradi of Norway, who served and fought in every corner of Europe. It is a portrait of a man who could well have changed the whole course of English history. William the Conqueror defeated King Harold of England at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. But less than three weeks earlier Harold had defeated the giant Harald of Norway at Stamford Bridge, and Harald’s only reward for his claim to the English throne was seven feet of English soil’.
