Welcome to the digital home of Kongshirden1308 – Akershus.

We are a living history group focusing on the reign of king Haakon V in Norway, 1299 – 1319.

While we started out as a fighting group we have gradually become more and more handicraft oriented, basically going from reenactment to living history. While originally portraying the king’s hird, the army and his royal retinue, we have expanded to include all manners of people and functions that the king would have needed. Oh, and very often the king himself is away… 😉
