The House of Haraldson were the rulers of Kattegat at the start of Vikings. The family was headed by Earl Haraldson with his wife Siggy. Their colors are black and red.


Earl Haraldson had two sons who were killed long before the series began. His only living child was Thyri. When Ragnar began to rise as a hero for Kattegat, the Earl saw him as a threat, and ordered a bloodletting on the village. Ragnar challenged Earl Haraldson to a duel. Haraldson was killed in combat, making Ragnar the new Earl of Kattegat.


The House consists of:

  • Knut Tjodolf: Half-brother of Earl Haraldson; also a member of House Tjodolf †
