2 oz Harald Fairhair Silver Scottsdale Mint Viking Series Round (2016)
King Harald Fairhair, the First King of Norway. King Fairhair reigned as the First King of Norway from 872 to 930 A.D. Between 866 and 872, Harald Fairhair conquered many petty kingdoms in what is modern day Norway. King Fairhair's efforts to crush all opponents to his rule culminated in the great Battle of Hafrsfjord in 872. Legend goes that King Fairhair's victory on the battlefield that day changed history forever and united all of Norway under one crown, the first King of Norway, Harald Fairhair.
In 1983, King Olaf V of Norway unveiled in Hafrsfjord, Norway "Sverd i Fjell" or "Swords in the Rock," a monument of three swords, each standing approximately 10 meters (33 feet) tall, to commemorate King Fairhair's great victory at the Battle of Hafrsfjord in 872. The largest of the three swords represents King Fairhair, the two smaller swords the petty Kings defeated that day.
