Eric Haraldsson (Erik, anglicised form of Old Norse: Eiríkr;[1] died 954), nicknamed ‘Bloodaxe’ (blóðøx), was a 10th-century Scandinavian ruler. He is thought to have had short-lived terms as the second king of Norway and as the last independent ruler of the kingdom of Northumbria (c. 947/8–948 and 952–5).
