Individual Note

Haakon the Red
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Håkan the Red became king, 1070-1079, although he was a Christian after the Swedes rebelled against the Anund Gårdske because he did not want to worship the Norse gods. Håkan was probably an illegitimate son of Stenkil's. The cognomen red refers to his red hair.

He is said to have been from Västergötland and he ruled for thirteen years until he died from an illness. During the last years he ruled together with Stenkil's son Ingold I.

He had the runestone U 11 made on Adelsö in Mälaren.
