List of nobles and magnates within Scandinavia in the 13th century

The general trend of Scandinavian nobility seems to be that there were comparatively few large magnates and generally most had connections to the royalty. The sources on nobility in 13th century Scandinavia are, at least in the English language, few and far between when compared to other regions but there is still enough to get a good idea of the general composition. It also appears that lords had less control over the peasantry in many cases.[1] This is probably partially due to the large nature of the countries which gave ample land for semi-independent farmers.[2]

Great LordsEdit

For this list since there are not enough great lords to warrant an alphabetical list the lords will be listed by precedence. Many of the larger lordships were held as appanage for various royal family members or were held by bishops. For some of the bishoprics, some bishops who had terms under 4 years may not be listed to avoid clutter.
