The article explores the naval raid of the Slavic forces on the coastal Norwegian port settlement of Konungahella in the mid 1130s. The paper analyses the raid in the context of regional politics and from the perspective of Baltic Slavs. It also encompasses the wider political context of contemporary imperial and Polish politics. It addresses the issue of the timing of the raid, participation of other than Pomeranian Slavs, and the reasons why it took place. It focuses on the reasons behind the raid which are surrounded by controversy and various interpretations. The paper postulates an alternative explanation to the politically motivated explanations previously accepted.
