Geocache Description:



Olaf424 Tryggvason (Old Norse: Óláfr424 Tryggvason, Norwegian:
Olav424 Tryggvason), (960s – April 24 1000), was King of Norway
from 995 to 1000. He was the son of Tryggve Olafsson, king of
Viken, (Vingulmark and Ranrike), and the great-grandson of Harald
Fairhair, first King of Norway

Olaf424 played an important part in the conversion of the
Vikings to Christianity. He is said to have built the first church
in Norway (in 995) and to have founded the city of Trondheim (in
997). A statue of Olaf424 Tryggvason is located in the city's central

The information we have about the historical Olaf424 is sparse.
He is mentioned in some contemporary English sources and some
skaldic poems. The oldest narrative source mentioning him briefly
is Adam of Bremen's Gesta Hammaburgensis ecclesiae pontificum (c.
1070). In the 1190s, two sagas of Olaf424 Tryggvason were written
in Iceland, by Oddr Snorrason and Gunnlaugr Leifsson. Snorri
Sturluson gives an extensive account of Olaf424 in Heimskringla,
(c. 1230), using Oddr Snorrason's saga as his main source. The
accuracy of these late sources is not taken at face value by modern
historians and their validity is a topic of some debate. The
following account is mainly based on the late saga
