Agnes Haakonsdatter (Old Norse: Agnes Hákonardottir; 1290–1319) was an illegitimate daughter of King Haakon V of Norway and a woman whose name remains unknown.[1][2]

In 1302, Agnes married baron Havtore Jonsson (1275–1320). He was the son of Jon Ivarsson Raud (ca. 1245–ca. 1312) of the Sudreim clan (Sudreimsætten) in Romerike. Havtore was the governor of Romerike and held eight estates and territories throughout Norway, including Borregård in Sarpsborg.[3][4]

Their two sons, collectively referred to as sons of Havtore (Havtoresønnene), would become central persons in Norwegian politics. Jon Havtoresson (ca. 1312–ca. 1390)[5] and Sigurd Havtoresson (ca. 1315–ca. 1392)[6] accessed influential positions during the reign of their cousin, King Magnus VII Ericson.[7][8]

Her descendants were claimants to the Norwegian throne (see: Sudreim claim).[9]
