Norway History Profiles Historic & History

Norway had a huge impact on the history of the world. Many of the famed Vikings came from Norway. They colonized Iceland and Greenland, explored probably as far as Canada and maybe into South and Central America. They conquered Normandy and eventually swore fealty to the King of France.

Then, in 1066 Harald Hardrada, King of Norway, invaded England from Norway. He was defeated by the English Saxon King Harold at the Battle of Stamford Bridge. William waited in Normandy. Both William and Harald had some tenuous claims to the English throne. Well, after Stamford William acted too. He invaded England and King Harold had to race to meet him. Harold met William at a place called Hastings. The Battle of Hastings changed England forever. William won thanks to the Saxon army being tired and depleted.

So, the King Harald of Norway helped William the Conqueror, descended from Norwegian who conquered Normandy, to conquer England and led to the rise of the line of English Kings and Queens that shaped England and really the history of the west. It would have been a vastly different world had the Norwegians remained contented farmers instead of the getting the urge to strike out from Norway, explore, and conquer.
