KINGS AND LORDS OF MAN

NORSE RULE

Before the dynasty of Godred Crovan it is difficult to be precise in giving names and dates of ninth and tenth century Norse rulers, many of whom can only be ascribed as traditional.

1079 Godred Crovan
1095 Godred died in 1095 leaving three sons - Lagman, Harald and Olaf. Lagman becomes king but takes the cross of the Crusaders after putting out the eyes of the rebellious Harald, and dies in Jerusalem in 1096. During the minority of Olaf, there is a period of great uncertainty (including the occupation of King Magnus of Norway 1098-1103) until the return of Olaf from the court of King Henry I of England.
