DEN SISTE TIME SNORRE 18

Snorri XVIII.  – The Final Hour – 

After his return to Iceland Snorri again settled at Reykholt. He was 62 years old when he was killed Sept. 29th 1241 – by order of Norway’s King Håkon Håkonsson. There had been almost continuous strife on Iceland for more than 100 years. In 1262 the land came under sovereignty of the King of Norway. The Icelanders got full independence 843 years after Snorri’s fall.
