About Eystein Adilsson (Oystein), King in Uppsala

Eysteinn (d. ca 600) was the son of Eadgils and Yrsa of Saxony. He was the father of Ingvar.

Snorri Sturluson relates that Eysteinn ruled Sweden at the time when Hrólf Kraki died in Lejre. It was a troubled time when many seakings ravaged the Swedish shores. One of those kings was named Sölve and he was from Jutland (but according to Historia Norwegiae he was Geatish, see below). At this time Sölve was pillaging in the Baltic Sea and so he arrived in Lofond (probably the island of Lovön or the Lagunda Hundred), where Eysteinn was at a feast. It was night-time and Sölve and his men surrounded the house and set it on fire burning everyone inside to death. Then Sölve arrived at Sigtuna (Old Sigtuna) and ordered the Swedes to accept him as king. The Swedes refused and gathered an army that fought against Sölve and his men, but they lost after eleven days. The Swedes had to accept him as king for a while until they rebelled and killed him.

Lovön, Ekerö, Stockholm

Snorri then quotes a stanza from Þjóðólfr of Hvinir's Ynglingatal:

   Veit ek Eysteins
   enda fólginn
   lokins lífs
   á Lofundi;
   ok sikling
   með Svíum kváðu
   Jótska menn
   inni brenna.
   Ok bitsótt
   í brandnói
   hlíðar þangs
   á hilmi rann,
   þá er timbrfastr
   toptar nökkvi,
   flotna fullr
   um fylki brann.[1]	
   For a long time none could tell
   How Eystein died – but now I know
   That at Lofond the hero fell;
   The branch of Odin was laid low,
   Was burnt by Solve's Jutland men.
   The raging tree-devourer fire
   Rushed on the monarch in its ire;
   First fell the castle timbers, then
   The roof-beams – Eystein's funeral pyre.[2]

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation (continuing after Eadgils, called Adils or Athisl):

Hic [Adils vel Athisl] genuit Eustein, quem Gautones in domo quadam obtrusum cum suis vivum incenderunt. Hujus filius Ynguar [...][1]. He [Adils] became sire to Øystein, whom the Götar thrust into a house and incinerated alive there with his men. His son Yngvar, [...][2] Thorsteins saga Víkingssonar makes Eysteinn the father of Anund and grandfather of Ingjald and consequently skips Ingvar's generation. It adds a second son to Eysteinn named Olaf, who was the king of Fjordane in Norway. -------------------- 34. ROLF KRAKE'S DEATH.

Eystein, King Adils' son, ruled next over Sweden, and in his lifetime Rolf Krake of Leidre fell. In those days many kings, both Danes and Northmen, ravaged the Swedish dominions; for there were many sea-kings who ruled over many people, but had no lands, and he might well be called a sea-king who never slept beneath sooty roof-timbers.

35. OF EYSTEIN AND THE JUTLAND KING SOLVE.

There was a sea-king called Solve, a son of Hogne of Njardo, who at that time plundered in the Baltic, but had his dominion in Jutland. He came with his forces to Sweden, just as King Eystein was at a feast in a district called Lofond. Solve came unexpectedly in the night on Eystein, surrounded the house in which the king was, and burned him and all his court. Then Solve went to Sigtun, and desired that the Swedes should receive him, and give him the title of king; but they collected an army, and tried to defend the country against him, on which there was a great battle, that lasted, according to report, eleven days. There King Solve was victorious, and was afterwards king of the Swedish dominions for a long time, until at last the Swedes betrayed him, and he was killed. Thjodolf tells of it thus: --

"For a long time none could tell How Eystein died -- but now I know That at Lofond the hero fell; The branch of Odin was laid low, Was burnt by Solve's Jutland men. The raging tree-devourer fire Rushed on the monarch in its ire; First fell the castle timbers, then The roof-beams -- Eystein's funeral pyre."

Snorre fortel korleis Øystein rådde i ei tid med mykje ufred. Mellom anna hadde Øystein vanskar med ein kong Solve frå Nærøy, som hadde jord på Jylland og i Sverige. Solve kringsette halla til Øystein og brende han inne.

Tjodolv frå Kvine segjer:

Øystein veit eg enden fann på live i Lovund, so lagnaden vilde. Og juten, kvad dei, inne brende Stor-kongen med svia-menn. Den som skogen øyder av på hovdingen fauk i heimen hans eigin då den trauste timber-stogo av kjempur full yvi kongen brann. Yngvar Øysteinsson hemna far sin, seier Snorre.

Under hans tid härjade både danskarna och norrmännen i Svea rike. Även sjökkonungar utan land kom hit och plundrade. En sådan, Sölve son till Högne på Njardö, härjade i österled. Han hade ett eget rike i Jutland. Kung Östen var ute på gästning i Lovund när Sölve kom med sin flotta och överföll honom mitt i natten. Kung Östen blev innebränd med hela sin hird. Sedan drog Sölve till Sigtuna och krävde att få bli kung. Kung Östen höglades i Lovund, tätt intill nuvarande Enköpingsvägen.

The Swedes refused and gathered an army that fought against Sölve and his men, but they lost after eleven days. The Swedes had to accept him as king for a while until they rebelled and killed him.

Eystein, King Adils' son, ruled next over Sweden, and in his lifetime Rolf Krake of Leidre fell. In those days many kings, both Danes and Northmen, ravaged the Swedish dominions; for there were many sea-kings who ruled over many people, but had no lands, and he might well be called a sea-king who never slept beneath sooty roof-timbers.

35. OF EYSTEIN AND THE JUTLAND KING SOLVE.

There was a sea-king called Solve, a son of Hogne of Njardo, who at that time plundered in the Baltic, but had his dominion in Jutland. He came with his forces to Sweden, just as King Eystein was at a feast in a district called Lofond. Solve came unexpectedly in the night on Eystein, surrounded the house in which the king was, and burned him and all his court. Then Solve went to Sigtun, and desired that the Swedes should receive him, and give him the title of king; but they collected an army, and tried to defend the country against him, on which there was a great battle, that lasted, according to report, eleven days. There King Solve was victorious, and was afterwards king of the Swedish dominions for a long time, until at last the Swedes betrayed him, and he was killed. Thjodolf tells of it thus: --

"For a long time none could tell How Eystein died -- but now I know That at Lofond the hero fell; The branch of Odin was laid low, Was burnt by Solve's Jutland men. The raging tree-devourer fire Rushed on the monarch in its ire; First fell the castle timbers, then The roof-beams -- Eystein's funeral pyre."

-------------------- Eysteinn (Swedish: Östen; died ca 600) was the son of Eadgils and Yrsa of Saxony. He was the father of Ingvar. The Eysteinn tumulus (Östens hög) in Västerås near Östanbro has been linked to King Eysteinn by some popular historians. The term Hög is derived from the Old Norse word haugr meaning mound or barrow.

Snorri Sturluson relates that Eysteinn ruled Sweden at the time when Hrólf Kraki died in Lejre. It was a troubled time when many sea kings ravaged the Swedish shores. One of those kings was named Sölve and he was from Jutland (but according to Historia Norwegiae he was Geatish, see below). At this time Sölve was pillaging in the Baltic Sea and so he arrived in Lofond (probably the island of Lovön or the Lagunda Hundred), where Eysteinn was at a feast. It was night-time and Sölve and his men surrounded the house and set it on fire burning everyone inside to death. Then Sölve arrived at Sigtuna (Old Sigtuna) and ordered the Swedes to accept him as king. The Swedes refused and gathered an army that fought against Sölve and his men, but they lost after eleven days. The Swedes had to accept him as king for a while until they rebelled and killed him.

Snorri then quotes a stanza from Þjóðólfr of Hvinir's Ynglingatal:

Veit ek Eysteins

enda fólginn

lokins lífs

á Lofundi;

ok sikling

með Svíum kváðu

Jótska menn

inni brenna.

Ok bitsótt

í brandnói

hlíðar þangs

á hilmi rann,

þá er timbrfastr

toptar nökkvi,

flotna fullr

um fylki brann.[1] For a long time none could tell

How Eystein died – but now I know

That at Lofond the hero fell;

The branch of Odin was laid low,

Was burnt by Solve's Jutland men.

The raging tree-devourer fire

Rushed on the monarch in its ire;

First fell the castle timbers, then

The roof-beams – Eystein's funeral pyre.[2]

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation (continuing after Eadgils, called Adils or Athisl):

Hic [Adils vel Athisl] genuit Eustein, quem Gautones in domo quadam obtrusum cum suis vivum incenderunt. Hujus filius Ynguar [...][1].

He [Adils] became sire to Øystein, whom the Götar thrust into a house and incinerated alive there with his men. His son Yngvar, [...][2]


Thorsteins saga Víkingssonar makes Eysteinn the father of Anund and grandfather of Ingjald and consequently skips Ingvar's generation. It adds a second son to Eysteinn named Olaf, who was the king of Fjordane in Norway.

-------------------- BIOGRAFI:

Øystein Adilsson var ein konge av Ynglingeætta, skildra hjå Snorre Sturlason og i Den eldste Noregshistoria. Øystein skal ha levd på den tida Rolv Krake fall. Han var son av kong Adils, som er nemnd i fleire kjelder.

Snorre fortel korleis Øystein rådde i ei tid med mykje ufred. Mellom anna hadde Øystein vanskar med ein kong Solve frå Nærøy, som hadde jord på Jylland og i Sverige. Solve kringsette halla til Øystein og brende han inne. I Den eldste Noregshistor var det gautane som brende Øystein inne. "Juten" i kvadet over er mistydd av Snorre. Dette fell inn i ei problemstilling som og er nemnd i Béowulf, der det er strid mellom svear og gautar. -------------------- Eystein’s father was Adilis “Athils” Ottarsson and his mother was Yrsa Helgasdatter. His paternal grandparent was Ottar (Vendilkraka) Egilsson. His maternal grandparents were Helgi Halfdansson and Olof (The Mighty). He had a half-brother named Hrolf.


Eystein had at least one child, Ingvar “The Tall” Eysteinsson King Of Sweden.


He died in Lovund… killed in a rebellion.


NOTES FROM WIKIPEDIA

Eystein ruled the Swedes after his father, at which time Rolf, the King of Leidra died. King Eystein was at a feast in a district called Lofond when a plundering sea king called Solve, a son of Hogne of Njardo from Jutland surrounded the house and burned him and all his court. Solve then went to Sigtun to gain the Swedes approval, there followed a famous eleven day battle but Solve won, ruling Sweden until the Swedes betrayed him and had him killed.
