143. Earl of Lade...
LadeJarl means Earl of Lade.

Lade is the name of the section in the town I was born in, Trondheim, Norway.

LadeJarl was a old viking title used from around 800 AD and up until around 1300 AD. The place was a very old Viking settlement initally and later grew to the 5th most important pilgrimage site in Europe. It was, in those days, the captial of Norway, the political and religious centre.
