Olaf the Blue was a human man.


Olaf the Blue was a Viking explorer who sailed his ship first to Iceland, and later to the Coast of Labrador on the American continent, in 900 and 901 C.E.. He claimed ownership of the new realm he had discovered for himself, and buried his Golden Helmet where he had reached land so as to prove that he had truly been there, in a secret location documented on a map which he hid in his Drakkar's hull. Olaf the Blue died in 920 in Norway, and his ship, depending on accounts, was either buried with him or left adrift to eventually freeze into an iceberg in the Polar circle.

Behind the scenesEdit

Olaf the Blue was prominently mentioned throughout the 1952 story The Golden Helmet, by Carl Barks. A portrait of him can be glimpsed in the 2004 Don Rosa tale The Black Knight Glorps Again.
