About Dómaldi / Domaldr King of Uppsala Visburrson (VISBURSON), Yngling, king in Uppsala Sweden

Domalde, Dómaldi or Dómaldr was a Swedish king of the House of Ynglings, in Norse mythology. He was the son of Visbur.

Domalde's rule was marked by bad crops and starvation. The first autumn, the Swedes sacrificed oxen at the temple at Uppsala, but the next harvest was not better. The second autumn, they sacrificed men, but the following crops were even worse.

The third year many Swedes arrived at Gamla Uppsala at the Thing of all Swedes and the chiefs decided they had to sacrifice the king. They sprinkled the statues of the gods with his blood (see Blót) and the good harvests returned.

He was succeeded by his son Domar whose reign was prosperous.

Snorri Sturluson wrote of Domalde in his Ynglinga saga (1225):

Domald took the heritage after his father Visbur, and ruled over the land. As in his time there was great famine and distress, the Swedes made great offerings of sacrifice at Upsal. The first autumn they sacrificed oxen, but the succeeding season was not improved thereby. The following autumn they sacrificed men, but the succeeding year was rather worse. The third autumn, when the offer of sacrifices should begin, a great multitude of Swedes came to Upsal; and now the chiefs held consultations with each other, and all agreed that the times of scarcity were on account of their king Domald, and they resolved to offer him for good seasons, and to assault and kill him, and sprinkle the stalle of the gods with his blood. And they did so.

-------------------- http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domalde Domalde av Ynglingeætten var en legendarisk konge av Sverige.

I henhold til Ynglingesagaen var han sønn av Visbur, far til Domar, og konge av Svitjod. Domalde var konge i Uppsala i rekke år med misvekst og uår. Ettersom ingen av hans ofringer av mennesker eller dyr hadde noen effekt, ble han til slutt selv ofret til gudene.

Carl Larssons kjente monumentalmaleri Midvinterblot skildrer offeret av Domalde. Den norske kunstneren Halfdan Egedius har også skildret dette motivet i sine illustrasjoner til Ynglingesagaen [1].

Domalde omtales i Tjodolf av Hvins Ynglingatal og i Snorre Sturlassons Ynglingesaga. Også Historia Norvegiæ inneholder en referanse til Domalde, som et resyme av Ynglingatal.

I Snorres versjon inngår også et utdrag fra Ynglingatal:

   Hitt var fyrr
   at fold ruðu
   sverðberendr
   sínum drótni,
   ok landherr
   af lífs vönum
   dreyrug vápn
   Dómalda bar,
   þá er árgjörn
   Jóta dolgi
   Svía kind
   of sóa skyldi.[2]
   Fordom de hende,
   dei farga jordi,
   sverd-kjempur,
   med kongeblod.
   Og mot Domalde,
   dømt fraa live,
   landsheren bar
   blodute vaapn,
   og svia-menn
   av svelting leide
   jute-hataren
   til Hel sende. [3]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domalde In Norse mythology Domalde, Dómaldi or Dómaldr was a Swedish king of the House of Ynglings, cursed by his stepmother, according to Snorri Sturluson, with ósgæssa, "ill-luck". He was the son of Visbur.

The luck of the king is the luck of the land,[1] and Domalde's rule was marked by bad crops and starvation. The first autumn, the Swedes sacrificed oxen at the temple at Uppsala, but the next harvest was not better. The second autumn, they sacrificed men, but the following crops were even worse.

The third year many Swedes arrived at Gamla Uppsala at the Thing of all Swedes and the chiefs decided they had to sacrifice the king. They sprinkled the statues of the gods with his blood (see Blót) and the good harvests returned.

He was succeeded by his son Domar whose reign was prosperous.

Snorri Sturluson wrote of Domalde in his Ynglinga saga (1225):

Dómaldi tók arf eptir föður sinn Vísbur, ok réð löndum. Á hans dögum gerðist í Svíþjóð sultr mikill ok seyra. Þá efldu Svíar blót stór at Uppsölum; hit fyrsta haust blótuðu þeir yxnum, ok batnaði ekki árferð at heldr. En annat haust hófu þeir mannblót, en árferð var söm eða verri. En hit þriðja haust kómu Svíar fjölment til Uppsala, þá er blót skyldu vera. Þá áttu höfðingjar ráðagerð sína; ok kom þat ásamt með þeim, at hallærit mundi standa af Dómalda konungi þeirra, ok þat með, at þeir skyldu honum blóta til árs sér, ok veita honum atgöngu ok drepa hann, ok rjóða stalla með blóði hans. Ok svá gerðu þeir.[2] Domald took the heritage after his father Visbur, and ruled over the land. As in his time there was great famine and distress, the Swedes made great offerings of sacrifice at Upsal. The first autumn they sacrificed oxen, but the succeeding season was not improved thereby. The following autumn they sacrificed men, but the succeeding year was rather worse. The third autumn, when the offer of sacrifices should begin, a great multitude of Swedes came to Upsal; and now the chiefs held consultations with each other, and all agreed that the times of scarcity were on account of their king Domald, and they resolved to offer him for good seasons, and to assault and kill him, and sprinkle the stalle of the gods with his blood. And they did so.

Snorri included a piece from Ynglingatal (9th century) in his account in the Heimskringla:

   Hitt var fyrr
   at fold ruðu
   sverðberendr
   sínum drótni,
   ok landherr
   af lífs vönum
   dreyrug vápn
   Dómalda bar,
   þá er árgjörn
   Jóta dolgi
   Svía kind
   of sóa skyldi.[5][6]
   It has happened oft ere now,
   That foeman's weapon has laid low
   The crowned head, where battle plain,
   Was miry red with the blood-rain.
   But Domald dies by bloody arms,
   Raised not by foes in war's alarms
   Raised by his Swedish liegemen's hand,
   To bring good seasons to the land.[7][8]

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

Cujus [Wisbur] filium Domald Sweones suspendentes pro fertilitate frugum deæ Cereri hostiam obtulerunt. Iste genuit Domar [...][9] His [Visbur] son Domalde was hanged by the Swedes as a sacrificial offering to Ceres to ensure the fruitfulness of the crops. Domalde begot Domar, [...][10] The even earlier source Íslendingabók cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and also gives Dómaldr as the successor of Visburr and the predecessor of Dómarr: vii Visburr. viii Dómaldr. ix Dómarr -------------------- Dróttinn í Svíþjóð. -------------------- Konge i Uppsala (Sverige) -------------------- In Norse mythology Domalde, Dómaldi or Dómaldr was a Swedish king of the House of Ynglings, cursed by his stepmother, according to Snorri Sturluson, with ósgæssa, "ill-luck".

   It has happened oft ere now,
   That foeman's weapon has laid low
   The crowned head, where battle plain,
   Was miry red with the blood-rain.
   But Domald dies by bloody arms,
   Raised not by foes in war's alarms
   Raised by his Swedish liegemen's hand,
   To bring good seasons to the land.[4][7]

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

Cujus [Wisbur] filium Domald Sweones suspendentes pro fertilitate frugum deæ Cereri hostiam obtulerunt. Iste genuit Domar [...][8]

His [Visbur] son Domalde was hanged by the Swedes as a sacrificial offering to Ceres to ensure the fruitfulness of the crops. Domalde begot Domar, [...][9]

The even earlier source Íslendingabók cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and also gives Dómaldr as the successor of Visburr and the predecessor of Dómarr: vii Visburr. viii Dómaldr. ix Dómarr.[10] -------------------- 6. DOMALDE - A Swedish King who died in 130 A.D. During his reign, Sweden was ravaged by famine. No amount of sacrifice would appease the gods, so at last it was decided to offer the King as a human sacrifice. This was done and the country then had good crops and people lived in peace. His son was:

I henhold til Ynglingesagaen var han sønn av Visbur, far til Domar, og konge av Svitjod. Domalde var konge i Uppsala i rekke år med misvekst og uår. Ettersom ingen av hans ofringer av mennesker eller dyr hadde noen effekt, ble han til slutt selv ofret til gudene.

Carl Larssons kjente monumentalmaleri Midvinterblot skildrer offeret av Domalde. Den norske kunstneren Halfdan Egedius har også skildret dette motivet i sine illustrasjoner til Ynglingesagaen [1].

Domalde omtales i Tjodolf av Hvins Ynglingatal og i Snorre Sturlassons Ynglingesaga. Også Historia Norvegiæ inneholder en referanse til Domalde, som et resyme av Ynglingatal.
