Snorri Sturluson

a.k.a. Snorre Sturlason

Author Code: NSST

Born: (?) 1179 - Hvammur, Iceland

Died: Sep. 23, 1241 - Reykholt, Iceland

Educated at the school of Saemundr Frodi, Sturluson married Herdis Bersi and later inherited her father's estate at Borg. They lived at Borg for four years, but in 1206 Sturluson left his wife and moved to Reykholt. A student of the law, he became a 'lawspeaker' of the Althing, or parliament. In 1218, he visited Norway at the invitation of the King, Haakon. Being interested in history, Sturluson learned much of the culture and past of Norway. He returned to Iceland in 1220 and in 1222 again became a lawspeaker. He had gained a reputation as a poet and this helped to get him elected to the Althing. Supporting union with Norway, by 1237 Sturluson had joined forces with Haakon IV. Over the next four years, he conspired in various political intrigues until his assassination by Gissur. Sturluson's work on the kings of Norway, the Heimskringla, was used to support claims by later kings. His work also includes The Younger Edda [also called the Prose Edda] (c. 1220).
