‘Ingi’s power stood firmly for eighteen years and another seven, until Hákon killed Ingi east in Viken with a war-host. That battle-brave ruler is covered with earth in the cathedral in Oslo.’
Ingi Haraldsson was killed at the battle of Oslo on 4 February 1161, by the army of his nephew, Hákon herðibreiðr ‘Broad-shoulder’ Sigurðarson. Hákon was the son of Sigurðr munnr ‘Mouth’ Haraldsson. Ingi ruled Norway 1136-61, and he was buried in Hallvardskirken in Oslo. See HákherðHkr (ÍF 28, 365-9).
