Notes for Magnus III Olavsson:
Magnus became king after his father, Oluf's death. He was married to Margaret the daughter of King Inge of Sweden and Queen Helena, and the granddaughter of King Stenkil. Before this marriage Magnus had three sons by former marriages. Øistein, Siguard, and Olaf. His son by Queen Margaret was named Harald. He was often out on pirating and warfare, and on his return from Ireland and Scotland, he and his men dressed much like the Scots, with short trousers and coats. For this reason he was nicknamed Magnus the bare-legged, (Barfot). He was killed in battle in Ireland in 1103 at the age of thirty years. His first three sons ruled Norway for 27 years, dividing the country between themselves. Harald, who had been raised in Ireland, laid claim to the throne later.
