Morkinskinna names “Magnus nicknamed…berfœttr and…Styrjaldar (Battle-Age) Magnus” as son of King Olav annd his concubine “Thóra, the daughter of Árni lági”. Snorre names Magnus as son of King Olav and Thora, commenting that he was brought up at the king's court. He succeeded his first cousin in 1095 as MAGNUS III "Berrføtt/Barfod/Barfot/Barefoot" King of Norway. Morkinskinna records that Magnus expelled “Sveinn, the son of Haraldr flettir (Despoiler)” from Trondheim, forcing him to flee to Denmark where he remained “until he became reconciled with King Eysteinn Magnusson”. Saxo Grammaticus records that King Magnus attacked the Hallanders but was surprised, when barefoot, by an unexpected charge made by them, hence his nickname. He invaded Orkney in 1098, captured joint Jarls Paul I and Erlend II, and declared his son as kiing of Orkney and the Isles. He also captured the Isle of Man and Anglesey, forced the flight of Hugh Earl of Chester and killed Hugh Earl of Shrewsbury. Florence of Worcester records that "rex Norreganorum Magnus filius regis Olavi filii regis Haroldi Harvagri" invaded the Orkneys and Anglesey in [1098]. Morkinskinna records that Magnus III King of Norway “was much smitten” with “the emperor´s daughter…with whom he had exchanged messages…Matilda”. William of Malmesbury records that he was killed after attacking Ireland. Snorre records his death in battle in Ireland. Orkneyinga Saga records that King Magnus was killed “in Ulster, on St Bartholomew´s day”.
      m (1101) as her first husband, MARGRETA "Fredkulla/peace-bringing woman" of Sweden, daughter of INGE I Stenkilsson King of Sweden (-4 Nov [1130], bur Roskilde). Snorre records that the marriage of "King Inge's daughter Margaret" and King Magnus was agreed at "Konghelle on the Gaut river" under the agreement which settled disputes between the kings of Norway, Denmark and Sweden. According to Saxo, her first marriage took place after the peace meeting between the three Scandinavian kings at Gotaalv in 1101, hence her nickname. She married secondly ([1105]) Niels King of Denmark. Snorre names "Queen Margaret, a daughter of King Inge, who had before been married to King Magnus Barefoot" as the wife of "the Danish king Nikolas, a son of Svein Ulfson".

      King Magnus III had [two] illegitimate children by Mistress (1):
      1. EYSTEIN Magnusson ([1088/89]-[Hustadir in Stim] 29 Aug 1123, bur Trondheim, Christ Church). Snorre names Eystein as son of King Magnus, specifying in a later passage that he "was of a mean mother". He succeeded his father in 1103 as EYSTEIN I Joint King of Norway jointly with his half-brothers Sigurd and Olav IV. Morkinskinna records that Eystein “ruled the north around Trándheimr” after his father died. Morkinskinna records that Eystein was a year younger than his brother Sigurd. Snorre records that "at a feast at Hustadir in Stim" King Eystein "was seized with an illness which soon carried him off", that he died 29 Aug 1123 and buried at "Nidaros…Christ Church". m INGEBORG Guttormsdatter, daughter of GUTTORM Thorersson & his wife ---. Snorre names "Ingebjorg, a daughter of Guthorm, son of Thorer of Steig" as the wife of King Eystein. Morkinskinna records that Eystein married “Ingibjorg, the daughter of Steigar Thórir”. Thorer was the half-brother of Eystein's paternal grandfather King Olav (see above). King Eystein I & his wife had two children:
      a) GUTHORM . Morkinskinna names “Guthormr and Máría” as the children of Eystein and his wife “Ingibjorg, the daughter of Steigar Thórir”.
      b) MARIE Eysteinsdatter. Morkinskinna names “Guthormr and Máría” as the children of Eystein and his wife “Ingibjorg, the daughter of Steigar Thórir”, adding that Maria married “Gudbrandr the son of Skafhøggr”. Snorre names Maria as the daughter of King Eystein & his wife, recording that she married "Gudbrand Skafhogson". m GUDBRAND Skafhogsson (-killed in battle 4 Feb 1161). Gudbrand & his wife had one child:
      i) OLAV Ugjäve (-Aalborg 1173). Snorre names "Olaf, a son of Gudbrand Skafhaug and Maria, a daughter of King Eystein Magnuson", recording that he was brought up "in the house of Sigurd Agnhot in the Uplands" and gathered troops and was chosen king by many Upland people. He was a contender for the throne in 1170.
      2. RAGNHILD. Snorre records that "Magnus Barefoot's daughter, Ragnhild was married by her brothers to Harald Kesia, a son of the Danish king Eirik the Good". m HARALD "Kesja" of Denmark, illegitimate son of ERIK I "Ejegod/the Good" King of Denmark & his mistress --- (-murdered Skibet 1135, bur Skibet churchyard).
      King Magnus III had one illegitimate son by Mistress (1):
      3. SIGURD ([1089/90]-Oslo 14 Aug 1130, bur Hallvardskyrka, Oslo). Snorre names Sigurd as son of King Magnus, when recording that his father installed as chief over the Orkney islands after expelling earls Paul and Erlend. In a later passage, Snorre records that he was the son of Thora, and a year younger than his half-brother Eystein. He succeeded his father in 1103 as SIGURD "Jorsalafare/the Crusader" Joint King of Norway jointly with his half-brothers Eystein I and Olav IV. Morkinskinna records that Sigurd “ruled the eastern part of the country and was entitled to official entertainment and revenue” after his father died. Snorre records that his sons Eystein, Sigurd and Olav took the kingdom of Norway after their father's death, recording that Sigurd was 13 or 14 years old when he was chosen king. Albert of Aix records that "Magnus brother of the king of Norway" arrived at the port of Ascalon and, in a later passage, that he helped besiege Sidon by sea. Assuming that the reference to Norway is correct, "Magnus" is presumably an error for "Sigurd". Snorre recounts his journeys to Spain, Sicily, Jerusalem and Constantinople, stating that he was 20 years old when he returned to Norway and had been tthree years on his travels. He died insane. Snorre records that King Sigurd suffered from delusions]. Snorre records the death of King Sigurd "the night before Mary's mass" and his burial "in Halvard's church". Morkinskinna records that King Sigurd was forty years old when he died. Betrothed (1102) BIADMUNIA [Blathmin], daughter of MUIRCHERTACH MacTordelbach High King of Ireland & his wife --- ([1094/97]-). Snorre records that King Magnus "contracted in marriage his son Sigurd tto Biadmynia, King Myrkjartan's daughter". Orkneyinga Saga records that Magnus "Barelegs" King of Norway “arranged the betrothal of Bjadmunja, daughter of King Myrkjartan of Connaught to his son Sigurd”, adding that she was five at the time anand his son nine. Snorre records that Sigurd left "the Irish king's daughter behind" when he left for Norway following his father's death. According to Morkinskinna, King Magnus arranged the marriage of “his son Sigurdr” to “Malcolm king of the Scots…his daughter” when in Orkney. This clearly refers to the same person as Biadmunia as Morkinskinna adds that the ages of the children as five and nine, as recorded in Orkneyinga Saga. However, the suggestion that her father was King Malcolm is clearly anachronistic in view of the king´s death in 1093. Morkinskinna records that Sigurd “left the daughter of King Malcolm of the Scots behind in the west and did not wish to be married to her” after his father died. m firstly (divorced 1128) as her first husband, MALMFRID Mstislavna, daughter of MSTISLAV II "the Great" Grand Prince of Kiev & his first wife Christine of Sweden (-after 1137). Snorre records the marriage of King Sigurd and "Malmfrid, a daughter of King Harald Valdemarson, eastward in Novgorod". Morkinskinna records that Sigurd married “Malmfrídr, the daughter of Haraldr Valdimarsson from the east in Kiev…[and] Kristín, the daughter of King Ingi Steinkelsson king of the Swedes”. Snorre records that King Sigurd divorced her. She married secondly ([1130]) Erik Eriksson of Denmark, who succeeded in 1134 as Erik II "Emun" King of Denmark. Baumgarten records her second marriage but only cites one secondary source in support. m secondly (([1128]) CECILIA, daughter of ---. Snorre records the marriage of King Sigurd and "Cecilia, who was a great man's daughter", overruling the objections of the bishops of Bergen and Stavanger. Mistress (1): BORGHILD Olavsdatter, daughter of ---. Snorre names Borghild as the daughter of a "rich bonde called Olaf of D|al who dwelt in Great Dal in Aumord", recording that she had "conversations and intimacy with King Eystein" but that King Sigurd made her his concubine. Morkinskinna names “Borghildr, the daughter of Óláfr of Dalr” as King Sigurd´s concubine. King Sigurd & his first wife had one child:
      a) KRISTIN Sigurdsdatter ([1125]-1178). Snorre names "Christina, a daughter of King Sigurd the Crusader and Queen Malmfrid" as the wife of Erling. Morkinskinna names “Kristín” as the daughter of “King Sigurdr jórsalafari and Queen Malmfrídr”. This is confirmed by the Saga of King Sverre which records the marriage of "Ragnhild daughter of Earl Erling and Kristin Kings-daughter" and "Halkel son of Jon Hallkelsson". [She may have been the Mistress: of SIGURD Haraldsson Mund joint Kiing of Norway, son of HARALD "Gille" King of Norway & his mistress Thora Guttormsdatter (-murdered 10 Jun 1155). Snorre names "Harald…who called himself a son of King Sigurd Haraldson and the princess Kristin, and a brother of King Magnus by the mother's side", when recording that he was captured by Nikolas "Kufung" who brought him to Bergen "into Earl Erling's hands", who ordered him to be taken to Nordnes where he was beheaded.] m (1155) ERLING Ormsen "Skakke/the Sharp" of Studla in South Hordaland, son of ORM Sveinsson & his wife Ragnhild Sveinkesdatter (-killed in battle near Nidaros [Trondheim] 18 or 19 Jun 1179, bur Trondheim Cathedral). Left for Palestine 1151 with Kali-Ragnvald Jarl of Orkney. Regent of Norway 1162 for his son King Magnus V. Jarl in Norway 1170. He was killed in battle against King Sverre.
      King Sigurd had one illegitimate son by Mistress (1):
      b) MAGNUS Sigurdsson ([1115]-murdered Holmengrå, Svinesund 12 Nov 1139, bur Oslo, Halvards Church). Snorre records the birth of Magnus son of King Sigurd and Borghild, stating that he "was sent immediately to Halogaland to be fostered at Bjarkey by Vidkun Jonson". Morkinskinna names “Magnus” as the son of King Sigurd and his concubine “Borghildr, the daughter of Óláfr of Dalr”, adding that he was “raised in his youth north on Bjarkey with Vidkunnr Jónsson”. He succeeded his father iin 1130 as MAGNUS "Blinde/the Blind" King of Norway, deposed 1135. Snorre records that Magnus was proclaimed king on the death of his father, commenting that he was "a great drinker, greedy of money, hard and obstinate", but that he was opposeosed by Harald "Gille" although an agreement was reached 3 Oct 1130 to divide the country between them. Snorre records that King Magnus was taken prisoner by King Harald's forces, who later blinded him, cut off one of his feet and castrated him. In a later passage, he recounts that Magnus "went north to Nidaros…went into the cloister on the holm and assumed the monk's dress". Snorre records that Sigurd "Slembidjakn", after murdering King Harald, took ex-king Magnus from his monasterry "to make his cause appear better" but that, after his forces were defeated, Magnus fled "eastward to Gautland and then to Denmark" where he was well received by King Erik "Emun" who agreed to invade Norway. Snorre describes how ex-king Magnus was killed at Hvalar, near Holm the Grey, the day after Martinmas. m (1133, repudiated 1133) KIRSTIN Knudsdatter of Denmark, daughter of KNUT "Lavard" Duke of South Jutland/Sønderjylland [Schleswig] and King of the Obotriten & his wife Ingeborg Mstislavna of Kiev ([1118]-). Snorre refers to the wife of King Magnus as "a daughter of Knut Lavard…sister of the Danish King Valdemar" and records that her husband sent her back to Denmark. Morkinskinna records that King Magnus married “Kirstín, the daughter of Knút lávardr and the sister of the Danish king Váldimarr” but adds that he sent her back to Denmark.
      King Magnus III had [two] illegitimate sons by Mistress (3):
      4. OLAV Magnusson ([1098/1100]-24 Dec 1115, bur Trondheim, Christ Church). Snorre names Olav, "much younger than [Eystein and Sigurd]", as son of King Magnus and "Sigrid, a daughter of Saxe of Vik". He succeeded his father in 1103 as OLAV IV Joint King of Norway jointly with his half-brothers Eystein I and Sigurd. Snorre records that his sons Eystein, Sigurd and Olav took the kingdom of Norway after their father's death, recording that Olav was then four or five years old. Morkinskkinna records that Olav “was no older than three years” when his father died, that his half-brothers acted as his regents, and that he did not “live more than twelve years after his father´s death”. Snorre records the death of King Olav, when he was “17 years old…on 24 Dec", and his burial "in Christ Church in Nidaros" after the three brothers had been kings for twelve years.
      5. [KARE . Snorre names "Sigrid who was mother of King Olaf Magnsuson and of Kare the king's brother who married Borghild, a daughter of Dag Eilifson"[428]. It is not clear entirely clear from this passage whether Kare was a full brother or only uterine brother of King Olav. The latter appears more likely as there is no reference to Kare, or any of his descendants, having claimed the Norwegian throne during the civil wars between Kings Magnus, Harald and Sigurd. This appears supporported by a later passage of Snorre which records that "Queen Ingerid had a son to Ivar Sneis…called Orm [surnamed]…King-brother", indicating that the term "king's brother" was also used for uterine brothers. m BORGHILD, daughter of DAG Eilifson & his wife ---.] Kare & his wife had two sons:
      a) SIGURD of Austrat . Snorre names "Kare the king's brother who married Borghild, a daughter of Dag Eilifson" and "their sons…Sigurd of Austrat and Dag" m ---. The name of Sigurd's wife is not known. Sigurd & his wife had three children:
      i) JON of Austrat . Snorre names "Jon of Austrat, Thorstein and Andres the Deaf" as sons of "Sigurd of Austrat". m SIGURD, daughter of ---. Snorre names "Sigrid, a sister of King Inge and of Duke Skule" as wife of "Jon of Austrat".
      ii) THORSTEIN . Snorre names "Jon of Austrat, Thorstein and Andres the Deaf" as sons of "Sigurd of Austrat".
      iii) ANDRES "the Deaf" . Snorre names "Jon of Austrat, Thorstein and Andres the Deaf" as sons of "Sigurd of Austrat".
      b) DAG . Snorre names "Kare the king's brother who married Borghild, a daughter of Dag Eilifson" and "their sons…Sigurd of Austrat and Dag".

Snorre says that Sigurd became a clerk and was consecrated a deacon, was called "Slembidjakn" because of "a haughty ungovernable spirit", but that he left Norway for Palestine when he heard that his mother claim that his father was king Magnus. After returning to Norway, he "applied himself to tradinng expeditions" and while in Denmark "submitted to the iron ordeal to confirm his paternal descent". He murdered [his half-brother] King Harald in 1136 and succeeded as king of part of Norway.

      “King Magnus III Bareleg ...From http://nygaard.50g.com/files/1754.htm: Magnus III, called Barefoot, or Bareleg (1073-1103), king of Norway (1093-1103), the son of King Olaf III. Magnus spent most of his reign at war, first in Sweden and later iin the British Isles, where earlier Norse settlements still legitimized Norwegian claims. By expeditions to the Hebrides and the Isle of Man in 1098 he consolidated Norwegian suzerainty in these parts, and the same year, responding to Welsh bidids for help, he defeated Norman forces on Anglesey. Magnus was killed while campaigning in northern Ireland. Magnus Barefoot, Norwegian Magnus Berrføtt, Old Norse Magnus Barfot, king of Norway (1093-1103), warrior who consolidated Norwegian rule in the Orkney and Hebrides islands and on the Isle of Man (all now part of the United Kingdom). He was called Barefoot (i.e., bareleg) because he often wore Scottish kilts, in authentic tartan plaid. He died leading an invasion of Ireland at Ulster in 1103 and was buried near the coast of Ulster.

      After succeeding his father, Olaf III Haraldsson, Magnus initially ruled jointly with his cousin Håkon and became sole ruler on Håkon's death the following year. In 1098 he launched expeditions to the Hebrides and the Isle of Man and responded tto Welsh pleas for help against the Normans by attacking Anglesey, where he defeated the Norman earls Hugh of Chester and Hugh of Shrewsbury. Magnus had attacked Sweden shortly after becoming king, but he made peace with the Swedish king Inge in 1101 and married his daughter Margaret. Magnus made another expedition in 1102, visiting the Hebrides and Orkneys and the Isle of Man. He was killed in Ireland in August 1103 while foraging for food. Norwegian control of the Isle of Man soon ended, but earls who ruled Orkney recognized the sovereignty of the Norwegian king until 1468, and the Orkney and Hebrides dioceses became part of the Norwegian church.

      from Online Midieval & Classical Library: Magnus succeeded his father Olaf as king of Norway in 1093, at first he ruled jointly with his cousin Hakon who died of sickness in 1094, leaving Magnus the sole ruler of Norway. Magnus invaded and consolidated Norwegian rule and control in the Scottish Isles, Hebrides, Orkneys, the Isle of Man and parts of Ireland. He also defeated the Norman Earls - Hugh of Chester and Hugh of Shrewsbury at Anglesey after responding to the Welsh call for help. He got the name Barefoot or Barelegs from the fact that he would wear a Scottish Kilt. There is no concrete evidence as to the exact location of his death but belief, folklore and conclusion point to a location known locally as the 'war hollowow' which is situated within the Royal Portrush Golf Course in County Antrim. It is known that a battle took place there between an Irish army and invaders around that period and that artifacts have been found there in the past - the landscape ape at that time would also have been marshy and boggy amongst the dunes. It is written that Magnus landed in Ireland in 1102 and was joined in his conquest by the King of Connaught, whose daughter his son Sigurd had married. They set out and tooook a large part of the country under their control including the area around Dublin finally returning to spend the winter in Connaught. In the spring set out north and took the greater part of Ulster under their control after which the Connaught king returned home. Magnus had left forces in Dublin and brought his fleet of ships north and anchored them off the Ulster coast ( possibly in the Skerry Roads). He was intending to set sail for Norway but needed provisions for his army and the journey. He sent a handful of men with word to the king of Connaught asking that cattle fit for slaughtering be sent and to have them arrive before the celebration of St. Bartholomew's (August 25th), it was said the sea was calm and the weather very warm at the time. When they didn't arrive on St. Bartholomew's Day, Magnus took a large contingent of his army and set off inland with the intention of foraging the surrounding lands for provisions. They proceeded through marshy ground until they came to a height and saw dust rising in the distance, some thought it was an Irish army and others the overdue cattle, a debate took place between them and Magnus decided that they should prepare themselves in case it was the Irish army. The king was described as being dressed thus - ' King Magnus had a helmet on his head; a red shield, in which was inlaid a gilded lion; and was girt with the sword of Legbit, of which the hilt was of tooth (ivory), and handgrip wound about witith gold thread; and the sword was extremely sharp. In his hand he had a short spear, and a red silk short cloak, over his coat, on which, both before and behind, was embroidered a lion in yellow silk; and all men acknowledged that they never had seen a brisker, statelier man. Eyvind had also a red silk cloak like the king's; and he also was a stout, handsome, warlike man'. Eventually they saw it was their own men and the cattle herd sent by the king of Connaught, with relief they turned and headed back towards the shore and their fleet. As they were making their way back through the marshy land they were attacked from all sides by a large force of Irish soldiers. Being trapped in boggy ground and unable to make headway, Magnus ordered Thorgrim Skinhufa and his division to try and get to the top of the largest ditch and then counter attack with bowmen from the top, the king and the other divisions provided the cover for them to reach that objective but on reaching tthe top and seeing the ships they put their shields to their backs and ran for the boats, leaving Magnus and the other divisions still trapped in the marshland and having to fight every inch of their way. Large numbers of both sides were killed, Magnus was said to have been hit by a spear in the thigh but managed to break the shaft and continue to make his way towards the shore, until he was finally killed by an axe blow to the head and died instantly, the attacker was immediately slain by Vikdun Jonson, a revered Norwegian warrior who had accompanied Magnus since leaving Norway. Vikdun was the last to flee from the battle and took the kings banner and sword with him to his ship, from where they immediately sailed for Scotland.”««s48»», ««s87»» [1, 2]
