Note to Anon Nkt 39II

[All]: Sigurðr sýrr married Ásta Guðbrandsdóttir, the widow of Haraldr grenski and the mother of Óláfr inn helgi Haraldsson (S. Óláfr). Haraldr Sigurðarson ruled jointly with his nephew Magnús Óláfsson (d. 1047) for one year, and thereafter he was sole ruler of Norway for nineteen years. He fell at the battle of Stamford Bridge against Harold Godwineson of England on 25 September 1066. His body was brought back to Norway and was buried in Mariekirken (Máríukirkja, the Church of S. Mary) in Trondheim, which Haraldr himself had built (see Theodoricus, MHN 58). When that church was demolished by Archbishop Eysteinn c. 1170, Haraldr’s body was relocated to the Augustinian foundation of Elgeseter (see McDougall and MacDougall 1998, 105 n. 281). See Ágr (ÍF 29, 39-40), Mork 1928-32, 270-8, 284, Fsk (ÍF 29, 280-9), HSigHkr (ÍF 28, 183-91, 198).
