Kjotve the Rich (Old Norse: Kjötvi hinn auðgi, Norwegian: Kjotve den Rike) was a king of Agder, then a petty kingdom in southern Norway, in the late 800s. Kjotve was the father of Thor Haklang (Kjøtvesson). Kjotve led the western Norwegian kings against Harald Fairhair at the Battle of Hafrsfjord. Defeated by Harald, Kjotve fled; many of his allies were killed in the battle.
