About Erik I King of Upsala

Erik Björnsson was one of the sons of Björn Ironside, and according to Hervarar saga he succeeded his father on the Swedish throne. The saga states that he ruled for a short time, and was succeeded by his nephew Erik Refilsson. Both Erik Björnsson's sons, Anund Uppsale and Björn at Haugi, were to be kings of Sweden.

Erik III Uppsale av Munsöätten var en son till Björn Järnsida. Erik tillhörde ättens huvudgren. Vid Ansgars andra besök år 852 föreslogs att Erik III skulle upptas bland gudarna istället för den nye guden. -------------------- Birth : BEF 770

-------------------- Erik Björnsson was one of the sons of Björn Ironside and a semi-legendary king of Sweden of the House of Munsö, who would have lived in the early 9th century. One of the few surviving Scandinavian sources that deal with Swedish kings from this time is Hervarar saga. It says:

“ The sons of Björn Ironside were Eric and Refil. The latter was a warrior-prince and sea-king. King Eric ruled the Swedish Realm after his father, and lived but a short time. Then Eric the son of Refil succeeded to the Kingdom."
