(1204–63)

King of Norway (c. 1220–63). His reign was troubled by internal dissensions and he had Earl Skule executed in 1239. Iceland and Greenland were added to the Norwegian crown but control of the Hebrides was lost. This followed his defeat by Alexander III of Scotland in the decisive battle at Largs in 1263.
