Eric Bloodaxe Legendary Warriors Series 1 Troy Ounce (oz) .999 Fine Silver Medallion (Round) -3 Piece Lot

As the first release in the exclusive Warriors Series this silver round features Eric Haraldsson, otherwise known as Eric Bloodaxe. This 1 oz of .999 fine Silver Round features this famous Viking credited in the Viking sagas with the unification of Norway. He is most well known for being a warrior and king of Norway who gained his throne through the extermination of his brothers. When Haraldsson’s father died, he killed his half-brothers to gain complete control of Norway. One legend recounts that his surviving younger brother, Hakon, challenged him for control of the kingdom, which Haraldsson gave it up without a fight.

Later, he was banished from Norway and traveled to Northumbria, where he led bloody raids upon Scotland. Eric also left visible traces of his own in the form of coinage issued in his name at York. Both English and saga sources agree that Eric had been killed in battle, though in later English chronicles, no such details appear in contemporary sources. However, later sources theorize that Eric was killed in an ambush by Maccus, son of Olaf. Additional legends indicate he invaded Northumbria and forced his way into kingship. Still others state he was made a sub-king by King Athelstan, a friend of his father, and ruled from 947-948 and 952-954 A.D.
