Kongetinn - Royal Pewter
The "Kongetinn" design is inspired by historical events from the late Viking period, almost 1000 years ago.
In the year 1030 A.D. King Olav the Holy and many of his men sacrificed their lives for Christianity at the famous battle of Stiklestad, Norway. He was the only Viking declared a saint by the Catholic Church.
This historic event is the inspiration for the "Kongetinn" pattern. The King and his men are portrayed on this unique collection.
The Legendary Viking Kings
The Vikings were the venturesome seafarers from Denmark, Norway and Sweden. They spread across Europe and the North Atlantic region in the period (800-1050 A.D.) known as the Viking Ages. Often thought of as raiders, Vikings were in fact primarily traders, explorers and settlers. They left behind a legacy, not only of archaeological remains, but also family names and place names. Their heritage is reflected in local dialects, customs, folk tales, and various traditions.
Some of the more prominent kings of this time are featured in our Viking King pewter collection.
