Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Philip was the son of Símon Kárason (d. 1190), and Margrét Arnadóttir. Símon was a prominent opponent of the Birkebeiner king Sverre, who fought with the unsuccessful pretender Jon Kuvlung in the 1180s, and was killed launching a new unsuccessful rising against Sverre in 1190. Philip''s mother Margrét was the half-sister of king Inge Crouchback and full sister of Nikolás Arnason, bishop of Oslo and another prominent opponent of king Sverre and the Birkebeiner. In 1196, bishop Nikolas and other opponents of king Sverre raised the bagler party, with Inge Magnusson as their king, and with the strong support of the Church. The bagler fought Sverre until his death in 1202, neither side being able to achieve victory. Sverre was succeeded by his son, Håkon Sverresson, who reconciled himself with the church. Deprived of its main support, the bagler party dissolved, and their king Inge was killed.
