Concept art of Thorstein

Thorstein the Red (c. 850 – 880/890), also known as Thorstein Olafsson, was a Viking chieftain active in Ireland and later Scotland during the 9th century.


Thorstein was born around 850 as the son of Olaf the White, King of Dublin, and Aud the Deep-minded, who was the daughter of Ketil Flatnose.[1] By 879, Thorstein was the leader of a gang. The jarlskona Eivor Varinsdottir of the Raven Clan captured him after her cousin Bárid mac Ímair was attacked by his men.[2]
