Abstract [en]

From a few variables studied, the author states that Härjedalen was only weakly integrated into the Norwegian kingdom in the Middle Ages - probably the least integrated province along the whole Norwegian-Swedish border. However, there were other inland districts in Norway that could be compared to Härjedalen. Upper Telemark seems to be a good example. They had in common that they were situated in peripheries of the kingdom, had rather poor conditions for arable farming, and were sparsely populated. For the Norwegian Crown, there was not much to acquire in these areas. Härjedalen's integration into the Norwegian Church province was also comparatively weak, as was the Norwegian identity among the population of Härjedalen.
