In his zeal for the Christian religion he made considerable use of violence. His harsh rule caused discontent, and his chieftains in cooperation with the Anglo-Danish king Canute tured him out of the country. In 1030 he made an attempt to regain his kingdom, but died in the battle of Stiklestad. Very soon his death was regarded as a martyr's end, and he was invoked as a saint.
