Snorri Sturluson (or Snorre Sturlason, as he is called in Norway) was killed by a guy called Gissr Þorvaldsson, but the murder was ordered by King Håkon IV (which we mainly call Håkon Håkonsson). Snorri had made himself unpopular with the King for having supported his rival to the throne, Earl Skule.
