Hákon’s journey to Denmark in the summer of 1257 and his attempt to reach an agreement with King Kristófór I Valdimarsson of Denmark (r. 1252-9). The initial negotiations were difficult, and some people urged Hákon to harry in Denmark. However, Hákon had promised six nights of truce before launching an attack.

For this mission and the ensuing result, see also Sturl Hryn 16-18 and Hákfl 9.
