Today in Scandinavian History: Battle of Kings

In 1000, Olaf Tryggvason, King of Norway, met his doom in the Battle of Svold. This runestone, DR 66 from Aarhus (which we didn't get to visit last time 'round), is thought to describe the events of the battle. (The text is on the other side of our friend here.)

Well, old Olaf had it coming after the way he treated Leif, son of Eric.
