Jarl of More (Møre) Norvège. was jarl (earl) in the northwest coast of Norway, called More, approximately of the Norwegian county today known as Møre og Romsdal.

Mythical material (saga) postulate that his line was a male-line descent from Ancient kings of Finland.

Earl Ragnvald is a direct ancestor of Thorfinn Sigurdsson, William the Conqueror, Edward III of England, James I of England, and Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. He is therefore an ancestor of most of the royal families of Europe.

The legend says he was the one to cut the hair of king Harald Hårfagre (Haraldr hinn hárfagri b. 849) after he became king over all of Norway.

He was called Halfdan the Mild, but the Bad Entertainer; that is to say, he was reported to be generous, and to give his men as much gold as other kings gave of silver, but he starved them in their diet. He was a great warrior, who had been long on viking cruises, and had collected great property.
Holtar, in Westfold, was his chief house; and he died there on the bed of sickness, and was buried at Borre under a mound.

Surnom : "Fret" "The Fat"
King of (petty kindoms) Vestfold (745-750), roi de Romerick (vers 735 - vers 750)

Eystein, Halfdan Hvitbein's son, became king after in Raumarike and Westfold.
The father and son, Halfdan and Eystein, then took possession of the whole of Westfold, which Eystein ruled over as long as he lived. At that time there lived at Varna a king called Skjold, who was a great warlock. King Eystein went with some ships of war to Varna, plundered there, and carried away all he could find of clothes or other valuables, and of peasants' stock, and killed cattle on the strand for provision, and then went off. King Skjold came to the strand with his army, just as Eystein was at such a distance over the fjord that King Skjold could only see his sails. Then he took his cloak, waved it, and blew into it. King Eystein was sitting at the helm as they sailed in past Jarls, and another ship was sailing at the side of his, when there came a stroke of a wave, by which the boom of the other ship struck the king and threw him overboard, which proved his death. His men fished up his body, and it was carried into Borre, where a mound was thrown up over it, out towards the sea at Raden, near Vodle.

Individual note:   Halvdan I Olavsson Hvitbein,
(vers 715 Varmland, Suède - Toten, Uppland, Danemark -)
King in Norway Uplanders, of Romerika and Vestfold (685-745),
Le premier roi qui a laissé des traces archéologiques.

Halfdan was brought up in Soleyar, in the house of his mother's brother Solve, and was called Halfdan Hvitbein.

Some of the people of Vermeland realized that Olaf was not responsible for the people going hungry, so they went across the Eida Forest with all their men and came to Soleyar where Olaf's son, Halfdan, was being raised by King Solve. They killed Solve, took Halfdan prisoner, and made him their king. He then subdued Soleyar and Romerike. He later subdued a great part of Hedemark, Toten, Hadeland and Vestfold. Halfdan was king of Romerika and Vestfold while his brother, Ingjald, was king of Vermeland.

Those of the Swedes who had more understanding found that the dear times proceeded from there being a greater number of people on the land than it could support, and that the king could not be blamed for this. They took the resolution, therefore, to cross the Eida forest with all their men, and came quite unexpectedly into Soleyar, where they put to death King Solve, and took Halfdan Hvitbein prisoner, and made him their chief, and gave him the title of king. Thereupon he subdued Soleyar, and proceeding with his army into Raumarike, plundered there, and laid that district also in subjection by force of arms.

Halfdan Hvitbein became a great king. He was married to Aasa, a daughter of Eystein the Severe, who was king of the Upland people, and ruled over Hedemark. Halfdan and Aasa had two sons, Eystein and Gudrod. Halfdan subdued a great part of Hedemark, Toten, Hadeland, and much of Westfold. He lived to be an old man, and died in his bed at Toten, from whence his body was transported to Westfold, and was buried under a mound at a place called Skaereid, at Skiringsale.
