About this title

Synopsis:

Excerpt from The Early Kings of Norway
The beginning of his great adventure was of a romantic character - youthful love for the beautiful Gyda, a then glori ous and famous young lady of those regions, whom the young Harald aspired to marry. Gyda answered his embassy and prayer in a distant, lofty manner: Her it would not be seem to wed any J arl or poor creature of that kind let him do as Gorm Of Denmark, Eric of Sweden, Egbert of Eng land, and others had done, - subdue into peace and regula tion the confused, contentious bits of jarls around him, and become a king; then, perhaps, she might think of his pro posal till then, not.' Harald was struck with this proud answer, which rendered Gyda tenfold more desirable to him. He vowed to let his hair grow, never to cut or even to comb it till this feat were done, and the peerless Gyda his own. He proceeded accordingly to conquer, in fierce battle, a Jarl or two every year, and at the end of twelve years had his nu kempt (and almost unimaginable) head of hair clipt Off - Jarl rognwald (reginald) Of Mere, the most valued and valuable of all his subject-jarls, being promoted to this sublime bar ber function after which King Harald, with head thoroughly cleaned, and hair grown, or growing again to the luxuriant beauty that had no equal in his day, brought home his Gyda, and made her the brightest queen in all the North. He had after her, in succession, or perhaps even simultaneously in some cases, at least six other wives and by Gyda herself one daughter and four sons.

About the Author:

Thomas Carlyle was a Victorian-era Scottish author, philosopher, and historian. Raised by a strict Calvinist family, Carlyle abandoned his career with the clergy in 1821 after losing his faith, focusing instead on writing. Carlyle went on to publish such noted works as Life of Schiller, Sartor Resartus which was inspired by his crisis of faith, and The French Revolution, and became one of the most prominent writers of his day. Carlyle s later works included Heroes and Hero-Worship and Frederick the Great. Carlyle passed away in 1881.
