Olaf II of Denmark
Olaf II Haakonsson (1370 – 23 August 1387) was king of Denmark as Olaf II (1376–1387) and king of Norway as Olaf IV (1380–1387). Olaf was son of King Haakon VI of Norway and the grandson of King Magnus IV of Sweden. His mother was Queen Margaret I of Denmark which made him the grandson of King Valdemar IV of Denmark. In addition to his claim on the thrones of Denmark and later Norway, he was in the direct succession line to the throne of Sweden (but for the interposition of Albert of Mecklenburg).
He became king of Denmark when only five years old and later also succeeded his father as king of Norway. For over 400 years that followed, Norway would be ruled from Denmark, until its separation from that country in 1814.

The Lutheran Review: Olaf II; Viking, King, Saint
Olaf II lived from about 995-1030. He is also known as Olaf the Stout or Olaf the Fat. He is considered the patron saint of Norway. Early in life he traveled with the Vikings to England and France. He helped Ethelred of England fight against Canute of Denmark and Danish jarls. (Jarls were somewhat like earls. Bernard Cornwell has a couple of historical novels based during this time period.)

St Olaf's Church | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
View of the Oleviste kirik or St. Olaf’s Church in Tallinn, Estonia. The church is believed to have been built in the 12th century and to have been the centre for old Tallinn's Scandinavian community, before Denmark conquered Tallinn in 1219. Its dedication relates to King Olaf II of Norway (a.k.a. Saint Olaf, 995-1030). The first known written records referring to the church date back to 1267, and it was extensively rebuilt during the 14th century. From 1549 to 1625 St. Olav's Church, with its 159-meter spire, was the tallest building in the world, but a lightning strike in 1625 caused the wooden spire to burn down. The new spire, the one we see today, is 123.7 meter tall. During Soviet times, KGB used the tall, metal spire of the church as a radio transmission tower. [blog entry]
