Harold Haardraade is a Monk hero featured in Age of Empires II only in the Scenario Editor. He is actually an in-game representation of Harald Hardrada, the King of Norway from 1046 to 1066. Harold cannot pick up Relics but instead moves almost twice as fast as regular Monks and converts much faster. All technologies that benefit Monks also benefit Harold. Fully upgraded, he can have as many as 113 hit points and 8 range. However, unlike other regular Monks, Harold uses the voice set for military units rather than the unique Monk voices.
