Trondheim, Norway


Torvet -- Born in 995, Olav Haraldsson was a remarkably successful Viking chieftain and mercenary. His exploits extended from Normandy, Ireland to Finland, culminating in his claim of the Nordic crown in 1015. A zealous Christian convert, Olav fought ruthlessly against his pagan subjects and neighbors, and lost his life at the battle of Stiklestad in 1030. His canonization five years later became the first great milestone of shared Scandinavian history.
