If you prefer the sound of raw power rather than sail, then this is probably for you!

According to Viking Sagas

Harald Fairhair was among the most famous Viking Kings. He was the first King of Norway and the first war-band leader to unify to Norway as a kingdom.

This unification of kingdom was fairly a love story. When Harald became quite well-known and successful in the battlefield, he wanted a wedding. Knowing the beauty of the neighbouring princess, Gyda the daughter of Eirik, king of Hordaland Harald asked for her hand only to get a refusal. Gyda thought what Harald already had, was nothing great and she deserved more. (Harald later defeated Eirik at the naval Battle of Hafrsfjord.) Gyda completely won the heart of Harald who later swore to conquer the whole of Norway. As we know, an oath to the Vikings was holy and one should never go back on his word and Harald never did. He conquered the majority of Norwegian territory and finally won Gyda as his bride.
