About Olav IV Magnusson, King of Norway

Olav Magnusson (født 1099, død 22. desember 1115 i Nidaros) var konge av Norge fra 1103 til 1115.

Olav var sønn av kong Magnus Berrføtt, og ble tatt til konge sammen med de eldre brødrene Øystein I Magnusson og Sigurd I Magnusson Jorsalfare. Han døde kun 16 år gammel og blir av den grunn flere steder ikke regnet med i den offisielle norske kongerekka, han har heller ikke fått noe nummer.

----

Olaf became co-king together with his brothers Sigurd Jorsalfar and Øystein Magnusson when their father Magnus Barefoot died (1103). Since he was very young, his older brothers acted as regents for his part of the kingdom.

In 1115, Olaf fell ill and died 22 December. He was succeeded by his co-ruler brothers. His historical insignificance is shown by the fact that later historians, when constructing ordinals for Norwegian monarchs, left Olaf out from numbering.
