"At the funeral feast of Harald Bluetooth, Jarl Sigvaldi swears an oath on his father's memory to go to Norway and kill or drive away Haakon Jarl." This funeral feast is known as a Symbel in Old Norse, in which a Bragarfull would be taken.


Harald Bluetooth
Titles: King of Denmark

Lived: ~935 AD-986

Harald “Bluetooth” Gormsson was King of Denmark for nearly 30 years beginning in approximately 958 AD. During his reign, Bluetooth united the outlying tribes of Denmark and defended his people from the incursions of Norway and Germany, while overseeing the completion of vast contrsuction projects that strengthened the defenses of his nation. Bluetooth is equally known for casting off the Norse pagan traditions of his forbearers, becoming a devout Christian who strove to peacefully convert the people of Denmark during his rule.

Harald caused the Jelling stones to be erected to honour his parents. The Encyclopędia Britannica considers the runic inscriptions as the most well known in Denmark. The biography of Harald Bluetooth is summed up by this runic inscription from the Jelling stones:

"King Harald bade these memorials to be made after Gorm, his father, and Thyra, his mother. The Harald who won the whole of Denmark and Norway and turned the Danes to Christianity."
