Magnus VI of Norway

Magnus VI Of Norway

Magnus Haakonsson (Old Norse: Magnús Hákonarson; 1 May 1238 – 9 May 1280), known as Magnus the Lawmender (Old Norse: Magnús lagabœtir, Norwegian: Magnus Lagabøte), was the King of Norway from 1263 to 1280. His greatest achievement was his modernisations and nationalisation of the Norwegian law-code, which is what gave him his epithet. He is the first Norwegian monarch who is known to have used an ordinal number, although he counted himself as IV instead of the modern VI.
