About Agni "Skjalfarbondi" "the Powerful" Dagsson (Powerful King of Sweden), King in Sweden

http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agne_Skjalfarbonde Agne Skjalfarbonde var en svensk kung av Ynglingaätten, enligt Heimskringla. Han var son till Dag den vise. Under ett plundringståg i Finland dödade han en hövding vid namn Froste samt förde dennes son Loge och dotter Skjalf som fångar till Sverige.

När de hade kommit in i Mälaren och slagit läger ville Agne tvinga Skjalf att bli hans maka. Skjalf låtsade samtycka härtill, men lät på bröllopsnatten sina män till hämnd för sin faders död hänga Agne i hans eget guldhalsband från grenen på ett träd, varefter hon seglade bort.

Enligt sägnen ska platsen där Skjalf lät hänga Agne ha varit ön som därefter fick namnet Agnefit. Agnefit är ön där Staden mellan broarna (Gamla Stan i Stockholm) ligger. Agne sägs vara höglagd i Agnehögen i Lillhersby. Han efterträddes av sina söner Erik och Alrik.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agne Agne, Agni, Hogne or Agni Skjálfarbondi was a mythological king of Sweden, of the House of Yngling.

Snorri Sturluson relates that he was the son of Dag the Wise, and he was mighty and famous. He was also skilled in many ways.

One summer, he went to Finland with his army where he pillaged. The Finns gathered a vast host under a chief named Frosti.[1]

A great battle ensued which Agne won and many Finns were killed together with Frosti. Agne then subdued all of Finland with his army, and captured not only great booty but also Frosti's daughter Skjalf and her kinsman Logi.[2]

Agne returned to Sweden and they arrived at Stocksund (Stockholm) where they put up their tent on the side of the river where it is flat. Agne had a torc which had belonged to Agne's great-great-great-grandfather Visbur (who, interestingly, was the son of Skjalf's niece Drífa). Although, they were related, Agne married Skjalf who became pregnant with two sons, Erik and Alrik.

Skjalf asked Agne to honour her dead father Frosti with a great feast, which he granted. He invited a great many guests, who gladly arrived to the now even more famous Swedish king. They had a drinking competition in which Agne became very drunk. Skjalf saw her opportunity and asked Agne to take care of Visbur's torc which was around his neck. Agne bound it fast around his neck before he went to sleep.

The king's tent was next to the woods and was under the branches of a tall tree for shade. When Agne was fast asleep, Skjalf took a rope which she attached to the torc. Then she had her men remove the tent, and she threw the rope over a bough. Then she told her men to pull the rope and they hanged Agne avenging Skjalf's father. Skjalf and her men ran to the ships and escaped to Finland, leaving her sons behind.

Agne was buried at the place and it is presently called Agnafit, which is east of the Tauren (the Old Norse name for Södertörn) and west of Stocksund.

   Þat tel ek undr,
   ef Agna her
   Skalfar ráð
   at sköpum þóttu,
   þar gœðing
   með gullmeni
   Loga dís
   at lopti hóf
   svalan hest
   Signýjar vers.[3][4]
   How do ye like the high-souled maid,
   Who, with the grim Fate-goddess' aid,
   Avenged her sire? – made Swithiod's king
   Through air in golden halter swing?
   How do ye like her, Agne's men?
   Think ye that any chief again
   Will court the fate your chief befell,
   To ride on wooden horse to hell?.[5][6]

Ynglingatal then gives Alrekr and Eiríkr as Agne's successors.

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation:

Qui [Dagr] genuit Alrik; hunc frater suus Erikr freno percussit ad mortem. Alricr autem genuit Hogna; istum uxor sua juxta locum Agnafit, qui nunc Stokholmr dicitur, propriis manibus interfecit suspendendo ad arborem cum catena aurea. Cujus filius Ingialdr [...][7] This man [Dag] engendered Alrek, who was beaten to death with a bridle by his brother, Eirik. Alrek was father to Agne, whose wife dispatched him with her own hands by hanging him on a tree with a golden chain near a place called Agnafit. His son, Ingjald, [...][8]

Agne is incorrectly called Hogne[7]. Unlike Ynglingatal, Historia Norwegiæ does not give Dagr as Agne's predecessor, but Alrekr. Instead Alrekr is Agne's predecessor and Agne is succeeded by Yngvi (incorrectly called Ingialdr[7]). The even earlier source Íslendingabók cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and it gives the same line of succession as Historia Norwegiæ: xii Alrekr. xiii Agni. xiiii Yngvi[9].

The location indicated by Snorri Sturluson as the place of Agne's death has a barrow called Agnehögen (Agne's barrow) in Lillhersby. The barrow was excavated by Oxenstierna and dated to c. 400. -------------------- Konge i Uppsala (Sverige)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agne -------------------- Notes for Agne Dagson Ble først hengt og så brent.

Agne var en berømt Kriger og laae stedse paa Vikingtog; hærjede Finland, og overvandt Finnernes Høvding Froste, som faldt i Slaget. Agne bortførte hans Datter Skjalf, og giftede sig med hende. Hun bad ham feire sin Faders Gravøl, og Natten derpaa ophængte hun Agne med det Guldkjæde, som han bar om Halsen, i Træet ved hans Telt. Pladsen hvor dette skede er holdt derefter Navn af Agnefit eller Agnesstrand, hvorpaa siden Stockholm blev anlagt. Alrik og Erik den 1ste, Agnes Sønner og store Stridsmænd, bleve Samkonger efter ham. Paa et Tog ragede de i Strid, toge Bidslerne af sine Heste, da de ingen Vaaben havde med sig, sloges dermed og faldt begge. -------------------- Agne var ein konge av Ynglingeætta, son eller far av Alrek (eller son av Dag Dygveson). Forteljinga om han finst mellom anna i Ynglingesoga.

Snorre Sturlason fortel at Agne fann seg kone i Finland, etter å ha drepe far hennar, Froste. Kona heitte Skjålv, og bror hennar heitte Loge. På veg heim la han til ved Stokksund, ikkje langt frå innseglinga til Stockholm. Han hadde ein halsring av gull, som før hadde vore ått av Visbur. Her gifta Agne seg med Skjålv, og budde til eit stort gilde. Då han var drukken, bad Skjålv at han skulle akte på halsringen sin, og han feste ringen om halsen før han gjekk til sengs. Då han hadde sovna, tok Skjålv eit snøre og feste i halsringen, og slengde snøret over ei grein. Så heiste mennene hennar Agne opp i treet etter ringen, og dette vart banen hans. Etter dette vart staden kalla Agnafit, av di Agne vart bålførd på staden.

Tjodolv frå Kvine seier i Ynglingatal:

Underlegt er det um Agne-heren svik-fulle Skjålv skulle lika, då syster hans Loge upp i lufti drog kongen gode mer gullhalsbande, han som ved Taur temja skulde hesten svale som Hagbard reid. Historia Norvegiæ fortel berre at kona til Agne "drap han med båe hender" på Agnafit.

Kommentar [endre]

Forteljinga om Agne tykkjest vera mytologisk, og måten Agne døyr på minner i mangt om menneskeofring, slik dette vart utførd i Uppsala etter skildringa hjå Adam av Bremen. Her kan ein og tenkje på at namnet Agne minner om grøde-offeret som er knytt til vanekulten og Frøydyrkinga i desse områda. Namnet Skjålv (Skjolv), er og eit av namna til Frøya. Skilvingane, som er eit anna namn på kongane av Ynglingeætta, tyder "ætlingar av Skjolv".

Froste og Loge er namn som finst i Fundinn Noregs. Her er Froste son av Fornjot, og Loge er bror til Kåre og Ler. Namna er tydeleg mytiske, og knytt til vinteren, som "bur" i Finland. Dette "Finland" eller "Finnland" er tydeleg ikkje det geografiske Finland, men eit mytisk land der vinteren rår. Det kan samanliknast med Finnmark, og "finnane" i forteljinga er mytiske skapnader. Bak forteljinga om Agne kan ein soleis spore ein kamp mellom sommar og vinter, noko som fell naturleg inn i ein grødekultus.

Halsringen som er skildra i forteljinga gjev minningar om ein keltisk torques, ein ring dei keltiske hovdingane ofte gjekk med. Slike ringar er funne mange stader i søre Skandinavia i funn frå tidleg jernalder.

Ynglingatal then gives Alrekr and Eiríkr as Agne's successors.

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation:

Qui [Dagr] genuit Alrik; hunc frater suus Erikr freno percussit ad mortem. Alricr autem genuit Hogna; istum uxor sua juxta locum Agnafit, qui nunc Stokholmr dicitur, propriis manibus interfecit suspendendo ad arborem cum catena aurea.

Alrek was father to Agne, whose wife dispatched him with her own hands by hanging him on a tree with a golden chain near a place called Agnafit. His son, Ingjald, [...][8]

Agne is incorrectly called Hogne[7]. Unlike Ynglingatal, Historia Norwegiæ does not give Dagr as Agne's predecessor, but Alrekr. Instead Alrekr is Agne's predecessor and Agne is succeeded by Yngvi (incorrectly called Ingialdr[7]). The even earlier source Íslendingabók cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and it gives the same line of succession as Historia Norwegiæ: xii Alrekr. xiii Agni. xiiii Yngvi[9].

The location indicated by Snorri Sturluson as the place of Agne's death has a barrow called Agnehögen (Agne's barrow) in Lillhersby. The barrow was excavated by Oxenstierna and dated to c. 400. -------------------- Konge i Uppsala (Sverige)

Paa et Tog ragede de i Strid, toge Bidslerne af sine Heste, da de ingen Vaaben havde med sig, sloges dermed og faldt begge. -------------------- Agne var ein konge av Ynglingeætta, son eller far av Alrek (eller son av Dag Dygveson). Forteljinga om han finst mellom anna i Ynglingesoga.

Snorre Sturlason fortel at Agne fann seg kone i Finland, etter å ha drepe far hennar, Froste. Kona heitte Skjålv, og bror hennar heitte Loge. På veg heim la han til ved Stokksund, ikkje langt frå innseglinga til Stockholm. Han hadde ein halsring av gull, som før hadde vore ått av Visbur. Her gifta Agne seg med Skjålv, og budde til eit stort gilde. Då han var drukken, bad Skjålv at han skulle akte på halsringen sin, og han feste ringen om halsen før han gjekk til sengs. Då han hadde sovna, tok Skjålv eit snøre og feste i halsringen, og slengde snøret over ei grein. Så heiste mennene hennar Agne opp i treet etter ringen, og dette vart banen hans. Etter dette vart staden kalla Agnafit, av di Agne vart bålførd på staden.

Tjodolv frå Kvine seier i Ynglingatal:

Underlegt er det um Agne-heren svik-fulle Skjålv skulle lika, då syster hans Loge upp i lufti drog kongen gode mer gullhalsbande, han som ved Taur temja skulde hesten svale som Hagbard reid. Historia Norvegiæ fortel berre at kona til Agne "drap han med båe hender" på Agnafit.

Kommentar [endre]

Forteljinga om Agne tykkjest vera mytologisk, og måten Agne døyr på minner i mangt om menneskeofring, slik dette vart utførd i Uppsala etter skildringa hjå Adam av Bremen. Her kan ein og tenkje på at namnet Agne minner om grøde-offeret som er knytt til vanekulten og Frøydyrkinga i desse områda. Namnet Skjålv (Skjolv), er og eit av namna til Frøya. Skilvingane, som er eit anna namn på kongane av Ynglingeætta, tyder "ætlingar av Skjolv".

Froste og Loge er namn som finst i Fundinn Noregs. Her er Froste son av Fornjot, og Loge er bror til Kåre og Ler. Namna er tydeleg mytiske, og knytt til vinteren, som "bur" i Finland. Dette "Finland" eller "Finnland" er tydeleg ikkje det geografiske Finland, men eit mytisk land der vinteren rår. Det kan samanliknast med Finnmark, og "finnane" i forteljinga er mytiske skapnader. Bak forteljinga om Agne kan ein soleis spore ein kamp mellom sommar og vinter, noko som fell naturleg inn i ein grødekultus.

Halsringen som er skildra i forteljinga gjev minningar om ein keltisk torques, ein ring dei keltiske hovdingane ofte gjekk med. Slike ringar er funne mange stader i søre Skandinavia i funn frå tidleg jernalder.

-------------------- Agne, Agni, Hogne or Agni Skjálfarbondi was a mythological king of Sweden, of the House of Yngling. Agne being hanged by his wife Skjalf. Artwork by Hugo Hamilton, 1830 Agne's barrow in Sollentuna, Sweden.

Snorri Sturluson relates that he was the son of Dag the Wise, and he was mighty and famous. He was also skilled in many ways.

One summer, he went to Finland with his army where he pillaged. The Finns gathered a vast host under a chief named Frosti.[1]

A great battle ensued which Agne won and many Finns were killed together with Frosti. Agne then subdued all of Finland with his army, and captured not only great booty but also Frosti's daughter Skjalf and her kinsman Logi.[2]

Agne returned to Sweden and they arrived at Stocksund (Stockholm) where they put up their tent on the side of the river where it is flat. Agne had a torc which had belonged to Agne's great-great-great-grandfather Visbur (who, interestingly, was the son of Skjalf's niece Drífa). Although, they were related, Agne married Skjalf who became pregnant with two sons, Erik and Alrik.

Skjalf asked Agne to honour her dead father Frosti with a great feast, which he granted. He invited a great many guests, who gladly arrived to the now even more famous Swedish king. They had a drinking competition in which Agne became very drunk. Skjalf saw her opportunity and asked Agne to take care of Visbur's torc which was around his neck. Agne bound it fast around his neck before he went to sleep.

The king's tent was next to the woods and was under the branches of a tall tree for shade. When Agne was fast asleep, Skjalf took a rope which she attached to the torc. Then she had her men remove the tent, and she threw the rope over a bough. Then she told her men to pull the rope and they hanged Agne avenging Skjalf's father. Skjalf and her men ran to the ships and escaped to Finland, leaving her sons behind.

Agne was buried at the place and it is presently called Agnafit, which is east of the Tauren (the Old Norse name for Södertörn) and west of Stocksund.

   Þat tel ek undr,
   ef Agna her
   Skalfar ráð
   at sköpum þóttu,
   þar gœðing
   með gullmeni
   Loga dís
   at lopti hóf
   svalan hest
   Signýjar vers.[3][4]

   How do ye like the high-souled maid,
   Who, with the grim Fate-goddess' aid,
   Avenged her sire? – made Swithiod's king
   Through air in golden halter swing?
   How do ye like her, Agne's men?
   Think ye that any chief again
   Will court the fate your chief befell,
   To ride on wooden horse to hell?.[5][6]

Ynglingatal then gives Alrekr and Eiríkr as Agne's successors.

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation:

Qui [Dagr] genuit Alrik; hunc frater suus Erikr freno percussit ad mortem. Alricr autem genuit Hogna; istum uxor sua juxta locum Agnafit, qui nunc Stokholmr dicitur, propriis manibus interfecit suspendendo ad arborem cum catena aurea. Cujus filius Ingialdr [...][7]

This man [Dag] engendered Alrek, who was beaten to death with a bridle by his brother, Eirik. Alrek was father to Agne, whose wife dispatched him with her own hands by hanging him on a tree with a golden chain near a place called Agnafit. His son, Ingjald, [...][8]

Agne is incorrectly called Hogne[7]. Unlike Ynglingatal, Historia Norwegiæ does not give Dagr as Agne's predecessor, but Alrekr. Instead Alrekr is Agne's predecessor and Agne is succeeded by Yngvi (incorrectly called Ingialdr[7]). The even earlier source Íslendingabók cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and it gives the same line of succession as Historia Norwegiæ: xii Alrekr. xiii Agni. xiiii Yngvi[9].

The location indicated by Snorri Sturluson as the place of Agne's death has a barrow called Agnehögen (Agne's barrow) in Lillhersby. The barrow was excavated by Oxenstierna and dated to c. 400.[10] -------------------- 10. AGNE - King from 220 to 260. Agne took an army to Finland where he defeated the chieftain Froste and took his daughter Skjalv and her brother Loge. He married Skjalv and prepared a great burial feast in honor of her father, Froste. Agne now was in possession of the gold ornament which Visbur had refused to return to his first wife. It was securely tied about Agne's neck, when he fell into a drunken stupor after a great drinking bout at the burial feast. Skjalv, his wife, fastened a noose under the ornament while Agne slept, and with the help of her men threw the rope over a branch of the tree above and hanged Agne. His son was:

11. ALRIK - King from 260 until 280. -------------------- Agne became king after his father. Once he was pillaging Finland. He subdued it and took the King Froste's daughter to wife. Her name was Skjalv. After they had left Finalnd, she begged Agne to make a burial feast for her husband, during which he got drunk. Skjalv's men helped her hang Agne, after which they escaped and returned to Finland.

Markhus says that Agne's son, Alrek was the son of Gunhild, the daughter of Hugleik Dansson. Wikipedia shows Skjalf as the mother of both Alrek and Erik.

Agne ble også kalt Skelfir fra Voss. Han ble stamfar for Skelfingene i Uppsala, også kalt Ynglinger. -------------------- BIOGRAFI:

Nicknames: "Agne Skjalfarbonde", "Agni Skjálfarbondi", "Hogne", "Agni", "Agne", "Agni /Dagsson/"

Birthdate: cirka 400

Birthplace: Upsala, Sweden

Death: Died 450 in Stoksund, Now Norrstrom, Sweden

Occupation: Kung i Svealand, Roi d'Uppsal, Konge av Sverige, Kung. Hade erörat hövdingen Froste i fFnland och tog hans dotter och son med hem., Kung

Agne Skjalfarbonde var en svensk kung av Ynglingaätten, enligt Heimskringla. Han var son till Dag den vise. Under ett plundringståg i Finland dödade han en hövding vid namn Froste samt förde dennes son Loge och dotter Skjalf som fångar till Sverige.

När de hade kommit in i Mälaren och slagit läger ville Agne tvinga Skjalf att bli hans maka. Skjalf låtsade samtycka härtill, men lät på bröllopsnatten sina män till hämnd för sin faders död hänga Agne i hans eget guldhalsband från grenen på ett träd, varefter hon seglade bort.

Enligt sägnen ska platsen där Skjalf lät hänga Agne ha varit ön som därefter fick namnet Agnefit. Agnefit är ön där Staden mellan broarna (Gamla Stan i Stockholm) ligger. Agne sägs vara höglagd i Agnehögen i Lillhersby. Han efterträddes av sina söner Erik och Alrik.
