"King" - a ruler of a large nation, served by jarls (see Jarl) and their thanes (see Thane). When The Saga of Asa Oathkeeper begins, the title is held in Noregur by many rulers of petty kingdoms, but these petty kingdoms are all eventually subsumed into the Kingdom of Noregur under the rule of King Haraldur Halfdansson the Einkonungur, who makes himself the only man in Noregur to bear the title of Konungur, hence his nickname as "Einkonungur" (One King).

The proper plural should be konungar, but the plural rarely appears in my writings.

Equivalent: King
