Who was Haakon VI of Norway?

Haakon Magnusson was King of Norway as Haakon VI from 1343 until his death in 1380, and King of Sweden between 1362 and 1364, co-ruling with his father Magnus IV until they were both deposed there by Haakon's cousin Albert of Mecklenburg and a clique of exiled Swedish noblemen led by Bo Jonsson Grip. Magnus however claimed the Swedish throne until his death.

He is sometimes known as Haakon Magnusson the Younger to distinguish him from his great-grandfather Haakon V of Norway.
