Slaget på Re
Slaget på Re 1163 er det første av to slag på Re i Ramnes i Vestfold i borgerkrigstiden. Slaget sto mellom tilhengerne av kongsemnet Håkon Herdebrei som ble ledet av jarlen Sigurd fra Rør, og de norske lendmennene som ble ledet av Erling Skakke.

Herdebrei-partiet fremsto som opprørerne, og ble i løpet av slaget beseiret og deres hærfører Sigurd jarl falt. Etter nederlaget ble opprørsflokken utslettet av Erling Skakkes menn.

Tronkreveren Sigurd Markusfostre flyktet etter nederlaget til Nidaros. Han ble senere fanget utenfor Bergen og halshogd i Gravdal 29. september 1163.

Det andre slaget på Re sto i januar 1177 mellom birkebeinerne og Magnus Erlingsson.

Øyvind Flatnes Svartkrutt.net is owned and maintained me whose name is Øyvind Flatnes. I'm a Norwegian black powder shooter and I started this web site in February 2000. The ambition was to provide Norwegians with a black powder site in our native language, but since then most of the content is also translated to English. I'm also the author of a black powder book, which was published in March 2005. This book is currently available in Norwegian only.

On svartkrutt.net you can read my articles about various black powder related activities, participate on the international discussion board, chat or find interesting black powder or antique firearms on the market pages. The discussion forum has become a valuable archive of interesting articles. Sign up and participate!
