Jarls of Hlaðir

The Earls of Lade (Norwegian: ladejarl (singular), ladejarler (plural); Old Norse variant of Lade: Hlaðir) were a dynasty of rulers of Trøndelag and Hålogaland in Norway from the 9th century to the 11th century. [1]

The seat of the Earls of Lade was the Lade Farm (Norwegian: Lade gård), today located in the eastern parts of Trondheim and near the seaside of the Trondheimsfjord, an important waterway dating in the Viking Age.[2]

According to Snorre, King Harald I of Norway was a great commander but lacked a fleet. For that he was assisted by Håkon Grjotgardsson. In gratitude Harald I gave him the estate of Lade and made him the first Earl of Lade.
