Encyclopedia > Inge I of Norway

Inge Haraldson, krokrygg the crouchback (1135 - 1161) was the king of Norway between 1136 and 1161. He was son of Harald Gille and born of his marriage with Ingrid Ragnvaldsdotter of Sweden, in constrast to all his brothers who were natural sons. He lived longest of all the sons and successors of Harald, despite being a cripple/invalid. In 1142 a third brother Eystein came from Ireland to share the kingship. In 1155 he ordered the murder of his elder brother and rival, Sigurd II of Norway. The societal party of higher classes which later became known as Bagli formed around Inge, having their most important power base in Vigen region. When he died, surprisingly of natural causes, his supporters did not want to submit to his nephew Haakon II of Norway but selected Magnus Erlingson as king - pleading the church-supported principle of only legitimate issue having rights of inheritance (also Inge had been legitimate child). Magnus' mother was the legitimate daughter of the late king Sigurd the Crusader of Norway and Magnus was her son brn of marriage with earl Erling. Much later a young cleric Jon Kuvlung was claimed to be Inge's son and Bagli party used him as their then pretender. Events January - Byland Abbey founded Stephen of Blois succeeds King Henry I.
