Description

Inge Haraldsson (Old Norse: Ingi Haraldsson) was king of Norway from 1136 to 1161. Inge’s reign fell within the start of the period known in Norwegian history as the civil war era. He was never the sole ruler of the country. He is often known as Inge the Hunchback (Inge Krokrygg), because of his physical disability. However, this epithet does not appear in medieval sources.
