Fjölner eller Fjolner var i den nordiska asatron Frejs och jättinnan Gerds son, och ska enligt sagorna ha varit kung över svearna. Enligt Grottesången var han samtida med kejsar Augustus, och lär i så fall ha levat någon gång under första århundradet f.Kr och i början av första århundradet e.Kr..

Fjölner skall enligt Ynglingasagans regentlängd, vars första kungar enbart har mytiska namn, ha varit kung över svearna. Legenden förtäljer att han under ett besök hos den danske kungen Frode på Själland ska ha druckit sig så berusad att han i sömnyra drunknat i ett mjödkar hos densamme. Om detta skaldades det sedan att Fjölner hade drunknat i "vindlös våg". Han ska också ha sålt trälinnorna Fenja och Menja till kung Frode, som sedan lät dem mala guld i kvarnen Grotte.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fjolnir

Fjölnir, Fjölner, Fjolner or Fjolne (1st century BC - early 1st century AD) was a Swedish king of the House of Yngling, at Gamla Uppsala. He appears in a semi-mythological context as the son of Freyr and Gerd.

Fjölnir drowned in a vat of mead visiting Peace-Fróði, an equally mythological king of Zealand, where Denmark later appeared. Fjölnir was then succeeded by his son Sveigðir.

Grottasöngr

Grottasöngr informs that Fjölnir was the contemporary of Caesar Augustus (63 BC, AD 14). He was a mighty king and the crops were bountiful and peace was maintained. At his time, king Fróði, the son of Friðleifr, ruled in Lejre in Zealand. Grottasöngr relates that when Fróði once visited Uppsala he bought two giantesses, Fenja and Menja:

Fróði konungr sótti heimboð í Svíþjóð til þess konungs, er Fjölnir er nefndr. Þá keypti hann ambáttir tvær, er hétu Fenja ok Menja. Þær váru miklar ok sterkar.[1]

However, the two giantesses were to be his undoing (see Grottasöngr).

Ynglinga saga

The Ynglinga saga tells that Fjölnir was the son of Freyr himself and the giantess Gerd, but he was the first of his house who was not to be deified.

Freyr tók þá ríki eptir Njörð; var hann kallaðr dróttinn yfir Svíum ok tók skattgjafir af þeim; hann var vinsæll ok ársæll sem faðir hans. Freyr reisti at Uppsölum hof mikit, ok setti þar höfuðstað sinn; lagði þar til allar skyldir sínar, lönd ok lausa aura; þá hófst Uppsala auðr, ok hefir haldizt æ síðan. Á hans dögum hófst Fróða friðr, þá var ok ár um öll lönd; kendu Svíar þat Frey. Var hann því meir dýrkaðr en önnur goðin, sem á hans dögum varð landsfólkit auðgara en fyrr af friðinum ok ári. Gerðr Gýmis dóttir hét kona hans; sonr þeirra hét Fjölnir.[2][3]

Frey took the kingdom after Njord, and was called drot by the Swedes, and they paid taxes to him. He was, like his father, fortunate in friends and in good seasons. Frey built a great temple at Upsal, made it his chief seat, and gave it all his taxes, his land, and goods. Then began the Upsal domains, which have remained ever since. Then began in his days the Frode- peace; and then there were good seasons, in all the land, which the Swedes ascribed to Frey, so that he was more worshipped than the other gods, as the people became much richer in his days by reason of the peace and good seasons. His wife was called Gerd, daughter of Gymis, and their son was called Fjolne.[4][5]

Then Snorri tells that after Freyr's death, Fjölnir became the king of Sweden. However, he drowned in a vat of mead visiting Peace-Fróði (Friðfróði), the king of Zealand.

Fjölnir, son Yngvifreys, réð þá fyrir Svíum ok Uppsala auð; hann var ríkr ok ársæll ok friðsæll. Þá var Friðfróði at Hleiðru; þeirra í millum var heimboð ok vingan. Þá er Fjölnir fór til Fróða á Selund, þá var þar fyrir búin veizla mikil ok boðit til víða um lönd. Fróði átti mikinn húsabœ; þar var gert ker mikit margra alna hátt, ok okat með stórum timbrstokkum; þat stóð í undirskemmu, en lopt var yfir uppi, ok opit gólfþilit, svá at þar var niðr hellt leginum, en kerit blandit fult mjaðar; þar var drykkr furðu sterkr. Um kveldit var Fjölni fylgt til herbergis í hit næsta lopt, ok hans sveit með honum. Um nóttina gékk hann út í svalir at leita sér staðar, var hann svefnœrr ok dauðadrukkinn. En er hann snerist aptr til herbergis, þá gékk hann fram eptir svölunum ok til annarra loptdura ok þar inn, missti þá fótum ok féll í mjaðarkerit, ok týndist þar.[6][7]

Fjolne, Yngve Frey's son, ruled thereafter over the Swedes and the Upsal domains. He was powerful, and lucky in seasons and in holding the peace. Fredfrode ruled then in Leidre, and between them there was great friendship and visiting. Once when Fjolne went to Frode in Sealand, a great feast was prepared for him, and invitations to it were sent all over the country. Frode had a large house, in which there was a great vessel many ells high, and put together of great pieces of timber; and this vessel stood in a lower room. Above it was a loft, in the floor of which was an opening through which liquor was poured into this vessel. The vessel was full of mead, which was excessively strong. In the evening Fjolne, with his attendants, was taken into the adjoining loft to sleep. In the night he went out to the gallery to seek a certain place, and he was very sleepy and exceedingly drunk. As he came back to his room he went along the gallery to the door of another left, went into it, and his foot slipping, he fell into the vessel of mead and was drowned.[8][9]

Ynglingatal

Snorri also quoted some lines of Ynglingatal, composed in the 9th century:

   Varð framgengt,
   þars Fróði bjó,
   feigðarorð,
   es at Fjölni kom;
   ok sikling
   svigðis geira
   vágr vindlauss
   of viða skyldi.[10][11]
   In Frode's hall the fearful word,
   The death-foreboding sound was heard:
   The cry of fey denouncing doom,
   Was heard at night in Frode's home.
   And when brave Frode came, he found
   Swithiod's dark chief, Fjolne, drowned.
   In Frode's mansion drowned was he,
   Drowned in a waveless, windless sea.[12][13]

The Historia Norwegiæ provides a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, which precedes Snorri's quotation. It also informs that Fjölnir was the son of Freyr, the father of Svegder and that he drowned in a vat of mead:

Froyr vero genuit Fiolni, qui in dolio medonis dimersus est, cujus filius Swegthir [...][14]

Frøy engendered Fjolne, who was drowned in a tun of mead. His son, Sveigde, [...][15]

The even earlier source Íslendingabók cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and also gives Fjölnir as the successor of Freyr and the predecessor of Svegðir. In addition to this it summarizes that Fjölnir died at Friðfróði's (i.e. Peace-Fróði): iii Freyr. iiii Fjölnir. sá er dó at Friðfróða. v Svegðir:

Gesta Danorum

In Gesta Danorum, Book 1, Frodi corresponds to Hadingus and Fjölnir to Hundingus, but the story is a little different. It relates how King Hundingus of Sweden believed a rumor that King Hadingus of Denmark had died and held his obsequies with ceremony, including an enormous vat of ale. Hundingus himself served the ale, but accidentally stumbled and fell into the vat, choked, and drowned. When word of this came to King Hadingus of this unfortunate death, King Hadingus publicly hanged himself (see Freyr).

Ballad of Veraldur

Dumézil (1973, Appendix I) cites a Faroese ballad recorded in 1840 about Odin and his son Veraldur. It is believed that this Veraldur is related to Fjölnir and Freyr, as per Snorri's statement that Freyr was veraldar goð ("god of the world").

In this ballad Veraldur sets off to Zealand to seek the king's daughter in marriage despite Odin's warnings. The king of Zealand mislikes Veraldur and tricks him into falling into a brewing vat in a "hall of stone" where Veraldur drowns. When Odin hears the news, he decides to die and go to Asgard where his followers will be also be welcomed after death.

The tale is similar to that of the death of Fjölnir, son of Freyr, who accidentally fell into a vat of mead and drowned while paying a friendly visit to Fridfródi the ruler of Zealand.

Other mentions

Fjölnir is also another name for Odin, found in Grímnismál when the god revealed himself to Geirröd, and in Reginsmál when he was standing on a mountain addressing Sigurd and Regin. Snorri also mentions it as an Odinic name in Gylfaginning.

--------------------

--------------------

Fjölner var son till Yngvefrey och styrde över svearna och Uppsala öd. Han var mäktig och gav god årsskörd och fred. Fjölner omkom när hav var på besök hos sin vän Frode på Jylland. Denne hade ett stort kar som var flera alnar högt och fyllt med mycket stakt mjöd. Detta stod på en hylla under det loft som var Fjölners sovplats. Under natten gick Fjölner ut, mycket sömnig och drucken, för att uträtta sina behov. På återvägen miste han fotfästet och föll i mjödkaret och drunknade.

--------------------

Fjolne (Fjolnir) eller Fjølne er namnet på ein tidleg konge av Ynglingeætta i Svitjod, rekna som son av guden Frøy og gygra Gjerd Gymesdotter. Han lyt reknast som mytisk, og er omtala i Ynglingesoga og i Den eldste Noregshistoria. Båe kjelder er samde om at han mista livet då han drukna i ei mjødtønne eller eit bryggekar.

Snorre Sturlason har den mest utmåla skildringa av Fjolne. Han er skildra som "Mektug, årsæl og vensæl". Han er nært knytt til Fred-Frode, som var konge i Leidra (Lejre) på Sjælland. Bryggekaret er her "mange alner høgt", og Fjolne sov på svala over. Om natta laut han opp for å late vatnet, og var fælt drukken, slik at han snåva og ramla uti bryggekaret. Her drukna han.

Tjodolv frå Kvine fortel om hendinga i Ynglingatal:

Feig var det sagt

at Fjolne var,

i garden hans Frode

han fekk det å kjenna

Der var han lagi,

at log åt mjødhorn

hans bane vart

i vindlaus sjø.

Fjolne er var til Svegde, som tok riket etter han.

Andre tilvisingar til Fjolne [endre]

Namnet Fjolne finst att i Grimnesmål, og er då eit av dei mange dekknamna til Odin. Sameleis nyttar Odin dette namnet om seg sjølv i Soga om Volsungane, der han helsar Sigurd Fåvnesbane under dette namnet.

Det har vore påpeikt at det er eit litterært samantreff at namnet Fjolne går att som nemning på Odin og samstundes på ein son av Frøy. Dette kan vera ei samanblanding av namn, men og ei påminning om at Odin i nokre overleveringar har hatt Frøy som far. Ein meir tradisjonell Odin-variant er oppført øvst i lista over kongar i Svitjod hjå Snorre, før Ynglingeætta i røynda tek til med Njord. I Den eldste Noregshistoria står Ingve øvst i denne lista, heller enn Odin. Ingve er rekna som far til Njord i denne teksten. Det er soleis Snorre som har sett Odin inn øvst i kongerekka.

Notes for Fjolne Yngvi-Freysson

Dødrukken, skulle finne et sted å sove, mistet fotfestet og falt i mjødkaret og druknet.

Fjølner, Yngve Freys Søn, forstod at vedligeholde samme Fred og Lykke. Paa et Besøg hos den danske Konge Frode Fredgode omkom han ved at falde nedgjennem en Aabning i Gulvet i et Mjødkar, der var stort nok til at lade den berusede Konge drukne deri.

14. OF KING FJOLNE'S DEATH.

Fjolne, Yngve Frey's son, ruled thereafter over the Swedes and

the Upsal domains. He was powerful, and lucky in seasons and in

holding the peace. Fredfrode ruled then in Leidre, and between

them there was great friendship and visiting. Once when Fjolne

went to Frode in Sealand, a great feast was prepared for him, and

invitations to it were sent all over the country. Frode had a

large house, in which there was a great vessel many ells high,

and put together of great pieces of timber; and this vessel stood

in a lower room. Above it was a loft, in the floor of which was

an opening through which liquor was poured into this vessel. The

vessel was full of mead, which was excessively strong. In the

evening Fjolne, with his attendants, was taken into the adjoining

loft to sleep. In the night he went out to the gallery to seek a

certain place, and he was very sleepy and exceedingly drunk. As

he came back to his room he went along the gallery to the door of

another left, went into it, and his foot slipping, he fell into

the vessel of mead and was drowned. So says Thjodolf of Kvine:

--

"In Frode's hall the fearful word,

The death-foreboding sound was heard:

The cry of fey denouncing doom,

Was heard at night in Frode's home.

And when brave Frode came, he found

Swithiod's dark chief, Fjolne, drowned.

In Frode's mansion drowned was he,

Drowned in a waveless, windless sea."

At his time, king Fróði, the son of Friðleifr, ruled in Lejre in Zealand. Grottasöngr relates that when Fróði once visited Uppsala he bought two giantesses, Fenja and Menja:

Ruled the Swedes after his father's death.

Heimskringla, Ynglinga Saga, Section 14

Grottasöngr relates that he was the contemporary of Caesar Augustus. Fjölnir was a mighty king and the crops were bountiful and peace was maintained. At his time, king Fróði ruled in Lejre in Zealand. The two kings were great friends and they often visited each other, but their friendship was to cause them to inadvertently kill each other. Grottisong relates that when Frodi once visited Uppsala he bought two giantesses, Fenja and Menja, but they were to be his undoing (see Grottasöngr).

Heimskringla relates that he was the son of Freyr himself and the giantess Gerd, but he was the first of his house who was not to be deified. Once Fjölnir went to see Frodi in Zealand and a great feast had been prepared to which many people were invited. Frodi had a large house where he stored a huge vessel full of very strong mead. Above the vessel there was an opening in the ceiling from which mead was poured into it, by men standing in the loft above. After the banquet, Fjölnir was taken to stay the night in an adjoining loft. However, at night he felt that all the mead he had drunk forced him to leave his bed and to seek his way out into the bushes to relieve himself. Since he was very drunk and very tired he stumbled through the wrong door and staggered across the floor above the vessel. He slipped and fell through the opening into the vessel of mead where he drowned.

Attestations

Grottasöngr

Grottasöngr informs that Fjölnir was the contemporary of Caesar Augustus (63 BC – AD 14). He was a mighty king and the crops were bountiful and peace was maintained. At his time, king Fróði, the son of Friðleifr, ruled in Lejre in Zealand. Grottasöngr relates that when Fróði once visited Uppsala he bought two giantesses, Fenja and Menja:

   Fróði konungr sótti heimboð í Svíþjóð til þess konungs, er Fjölnir er nefndr. Þá keypti hann ambáttir tvær, er hétu Fenja ok Menja. Þær váru miklar ok sterkar.[2]

However, the two giantesses were to be his undoing (see Grottasöngr).

Ynglinga saga

The Ynglinga saga tells that Fjölnir was the son of Freyr himself and the giantess Gerd, but he was the first of his house who was not to be deified.

Freyr tók þá ríki eptir Njörð; var hann kallaðr dróttinn yfir Svíum ok tók skattgjafir af þeim; hann var vinsæll ok ársæll sem faðir hans. Freyr reisti at Uppsölum hof mikit, ok setti þar höfuðstað sinn; lagði þar til allar skyldir sínar, lönd ok lausa aura; þá hófst Uppsala auðr, ok hefir haldizt æ síðan. Á hans dögum hófst Fróða friðr, þá var ok ár um öll lönd; kendu Svíar þat Frey. Var hann því meir dýrkaðr en önnur goðin, sem á hans dögum varð landsfólkit auðgara en fyrr af friðinum ok ári. Gerðr Gýmis dóttir hét kona hans; sonr þeirra hét Fjölnir.[3][4]

Frey took the kingdom after Njord, and was called drot by the Swedes, and they paid taxes to him. He was, like his father, fortunate in friends and in good seasons. Frey built a great temple at Upsal, made it his chief seat, and gave it all his taxes, his land, and goods. Then began the Upsal domains, which have remained ever since. Then began in his days the Frode- peace; and then there were good seasons, in all the land, which the Swedes ascribed to Frey, so that he was more worshipped than the other gods, as the people became much richer in his days by reason of the peace and good seasons. His wife was called Gerd, daughter of Gymis, and their son was called Fjolne.[5][6]

Then Snorri tells that after Freyr's death, Fjölnir became the king of Sweden. However, he drowned in a vat of mead visiting Peace-Fróði (Friðfróði), the king of Zealand.

Fjölnir, son Yngvifreys, réð þá fyrir Svíum ok Uppsala auð; hann var ríkr ok ársæll ok friðsæll. Þá var Friðfróði at Hleiðru; þeirra í millum var heimboð ok vingan.

Gesta Danorum

In Gesta Danorum, Book 1, Frodi corresponds to Hadingus and Fjölnir to Hundingus, but the story is a little different. It relates how King Hundingus of Sweden believed a rumor that King Hadingus of Denmark had died and held his obsequies with ceremony, including an enormous vat of ale. Hundingus himself served the ale, but accidentally stumbled and fell into the vat, choked, and drowned. When word of this came to King Hadingus of this unfortunate death, King Hadingus publicly hanged himself (see Freyr). [edit] Ballad of Veraldur

Dumézil (1973, Appendix I) cites a Faroese ballad recorded in 1840 about Odin and his son Veraldur. It is believed that this Veraldur is related to Fjölnir and Freyr, as per Snorri's statement that Freyr was veraldar goð ("god of the world").

In this ballad Veraldur sets off to Zealand to seek the king's daughter in marriage despite Odin's warnings. The king of Zealand mislikes Veraldur and tricks him into falling into a brewing vat in a "hall of stone" where Veraldur drowns. When Odin hears the news, he decides to die and go to Asgard where his followers will be also be welcomed after death.

The tale is similar to that of the death of Fjölnir, son of Freyr, who accidentally fell into a vat of mead and drowned while paying a friendly visit to Fridfródi the ruler of Zealand.

Other mentions

Fjölnir is also another name for Odin, found in Grímnismál when the god revealed himself to Geirröd, and in Reginsmál when he was standing on a mountain addressing Sigurd and Regin. Snorri also mentions it as an Odinic name in Gylfaginning. -------------------- In Norse mythology, Fjölnir, Fjölner, Fjolner or Fjolne (Old Norse 'Fjǫlnir' - "Manifold" or "Multiplier"[1]) was a Swedish king of the House of Yngling, at Gamla Uppsala.

Fjölner eller Fjolner var i den nordiska asatron Frejs och jättinnan Gerds son, och ska enligt sagorna ha varit kung över svearna. Enligt Grottesången var han samtida med kejsar Augustus, och lär i så fall ha levat någon gång under första århundradet f.Kr och i början av första århundradet e.Kr..

Fjölner skall enligt Ynglingasagans regentlängd, vars första kungar enbart har mytiska namn, ha varit kung över svearna. Legenden förtäljer att han under ett besök hos den danske kungen Frode på Själland ska ha druckit sig så berusad att han i sömnyra drunknat i ett mjödkar hos densamme. Om detta skaldades det sedan att Fjölner hade drunknat i "vindlös våg". Han ska också ha sålt trälinnorna Fenja och Menja till kung Frode, som sedan lät dem mala guld i kvarnen Grotte.

Fjölnir, Fjölner, Fjolner or Fjolne (1st century BC - early 1st century AD) was a Swedish king of the House of Yngling, at Gamla Uppsala. He appears in a semi-mythological context as the son of Freyr and Gerd.

Fjölnir drowned in a vat of mead visiting Peace-Fróði, an equally mythological king of Zealand, where Denmark later appeared. Fjölnir was then succeeded by his son Sveigðir.

Grottasöngr

Grottasöngr informs that Fjölnir was the contemporary of Caesar Augustus (63 BC, AD 14). He was a mighty king and the crops were bountiful and peace was maintained. At his time, king Fróði, the son of Friðleifr, ruled in Lejre in Zealand. Grottasöngr relates that when Fróði once visited Uppsala he bought two giantesses, Fenja and Menja:

Fróði konungr sótti heimboð í Svíþjóð til þess konungs, er Fjölnir er nefndr. Þá keypti hann ambáttir tvær, er hétu Fenja ok Menja. Þær váru miklar ok sterkar.[1]

However, the two giantesses were to be his undoing (see Grottasöngr).

Ynglinga saga

The Ynglinga saga tells that Fjölnir was the son of Freyr himself and the giantess Gerd, but he was the first of his house who was not to be deified.

Freyr tók þá ríki eptir Njörð; var hann kallaðr dróttinn yfir Svíum ok tók skattgjafir af þeim; hann var vinsæll ok ársæll sem faðir hans. Freyr reisti at Uppsölum hof mikit, ok setti þar höfuðstað sinn; lagði þar til allar skyldir sínar, lönd ok lausa aura; þá hófst Uppsala auðr, ok hefir haldizt æ síðan. Á hans dögum hófst Fróða friðr, þá var ok ár um öll lönd; kendu Svíar þat Frey. Var hann því meir dýrkaðr en önnur goðin, sem á hans dögum varð landsfólkit auðgara en fyrr af friðinum ok ári. Gerðr Gýmis dóttir hét kona hans; sonr þeirra hét Fjölnir.[2][3]

Frey took the kingdom after Njord, and was called drot by the Swedes, and they paid taxes to him. He was, like his father, fortunate in friends and in good seasons. Frey built a great temple at Upsal, made it his chief seat, and gave it all his taxes, his land, and goods. Then began the Upsal domains, which have remained ever since. Then began in his days the Frode- peace; and then there were good seasons, in all the land, which the Swedes ascribed to Frey, so that he was more worshipped than the other gods, as the people became much richer in his days by reason of the peace and good seasons. His wife was called Gerd, daughter of Gymis, and their son was called Fjolne.[4][5]

Then Snorri tells that after Freyr's death, Fjölnir became the king of Sweden. However, he drowned in a vat of mead visiting Peace-Fróði (Friðfróði), the king of Zealand.

Fjölnir, son Yngvifreys, réð þá fyrir Svíum ok Uppsala auð; hann var ríkr ok ársæll ok friðsæll. Þá var Friðfróði at Hleiðru; þeirra í millum var heimboð ok vingan. Þá er Fjölnir fór til Fróða á Selund, þá var þar fyrir búin veizla mikil ok boðit til víða um lönd. Fróði átti mikinn húsabœ; þar var gert ker mikit margra alna hátt, ok okat með stórum timbrstokkum; þat stóð í undirskemmu, en lopt var yfir uppi, ok opit gólfþilit, svá at þar var niðr hellt leginum, en kerit blandit fult mjaðar; þar var drykkr furðu sterkr. Um kveldit var Fjölni fylgt til herbergis í hit næsta lopt, ok hans sveit með honum. Um nóttina gékk hann út í svalir at leita sér staðar, var hann svefnœrr ok dauðadrukkinn. En er hann snerist aptr til herbergis, þá gékk hann fram eptir svölunum ok til annarra loptdura ok þar inn, missti þá fótum ok féll í mjaðarkerit, ok týndist þar.[6][7]

Fjolne, Yngve Frey's son, ruled thereafter over the Swedes and the Upsal domains. He was powerful, and lucky in seasons and in holding the peace. Fredfrode ruled then in Leidre, and between them there was great friendship and visiting. Once when Fjolne went to Frode in Sealand, a great feast was prepared for him, and invitations to it were sent all over the country. Frode had a large house, in which there was a great vessel many ells high, and put together of great pieces of timber; and this vessel stood in a lower room. Above it was a loft, in the floor of which was an opening through which liquor was poured into this vessel. The vessel was full of mead, which was excessively strong. In the evening Fjolne, with his attendants, was taken into the adjoining loft to sleep. In the night he went out to the gallery to seek a certain place, and he was very sleepy and exceedingly drunk. As he came back to his room he went along the gallery to the door of another left, went into it, and his foot slipping, he fell into the vessel of mead and was drowned.[8][9]

Ynglingatal

Snorri also quoted some lines of Ynglingatal, composed in the 9th century:

  Varð framgengt,
  þars Fróði bjó,
  feigðarorð,
  es at Fjölni kom;
  ok sikling
  svigðis geira
  vágr vindlauss
  of viða skyldi.[10][11]
  In Frode's hall the fearful word,
  The death-foreboding sound was heard:
  The cry of fey denouncing doom,
  Was heard at night in Frode's home.
  And when brave Frode came, he found
  Swithiod's dark chief, Fjolne, drowned.
  In Frode's mansion drowned was he,
  Drowned in a waveless, windless sea.[12][13]

The Historia Norwegiæ provides a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, which precedes Snorri's quotation. It also informs that Fjölnir was the son of Freyr, the father of Svegder and that he drowned in a vat of mead:

Froyr vero genuit Fiolni, qui in dolio medonis dimersus est, cujus filius Swegthir [...][14]

Frøy engendered Fjolne, who was drowned in a tun of mead. His son, Sveigde, [...][15]

The even earlier source Íslendingabók cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and also gives Fjölnir as the successor of Freyr and the predecessor of Svegðir. In addition to this it summarizes that Fjölnir died at Friðfróði's (i.e. Peace-Fróði): iii Freyr. iiii Fjölnir. sá er dó at Friðfróða. v Svegðir:

Hundingus himself served the ale, but accidentally stumbled and fell into the vat, choked, and drowned. When word of this came to King Hadingus of this unfortunate death, King Hadingus publicly hanged himself (see Freyr).

Ballad of Veraldur

Dumézil (1973, Appendix I) cites a Faroese ballad recorded in 1840 about Odin and his son Veraldur. It is believed that this Veraldur is related to Fjölnir and Freyr, as per Snorri's statement that Freyr was veraldar goð ("god of the world").

In this ballad Veraldur sets off to Zealand to seek the king's daughter in marriage despite Odin's warnings. The king of Zealand mislikes Veraldur and tricks him into falling into a brewing vat in a "hall of stone" where Veraldur drowns. When Odin hears the news, he decides to die and go to Asgard where his followers will be also be welcomed after death.

--------------------

Fjölner var son till Yngvefrey och styrde över svearna och Uppsala öd. Han var mäktig och gav god årsskörd och fred. Fjölner omkom när hav var på besök hos sin vän Frode på Jylland. Denne hade ett stort kar som var flera alnar högt och fyllt med mycket stakt mjöd. Detta stod på en hylla under det loft som var Fjölners sovplats. Under natten gick Fjölner ut, mycket sömnig och drucken, för att uträtta sina behov. På återvägen miste han fotfästet och föll i mjödkaret och drunknade.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fj%C3%B6lnir

--------------------

Fjolne (Fjolnir) eller Fjølne er namnet på ein tidleg konge av Ynglingeætta i Svitjod, rekna som son av guden Frøy og gygra Gjerd Gymesdotter. Han lyt reknast som mytisk, og er omtala i Ynglingesoga og i Den eldste Noregshistoria. Båe kjelder er samde om at han mista livet då han drukna i ei mjødtønne eller eit bryggekar.

Snorre Sturlason har den mest utmåla skildringa av Fjolne. Han er skildra som "Mektug, årsæl og vensæl". Han er nært knytt til Fred-Frode, som var konge i Leidra (Lejre) på Sjælland. Bryggekaret er her "mange alner høgt", og Fjolne sov på svala over. Om natta laut han opp for å late vatnet, og var fælt drukken, slik at han snåva og ramla uti bryggekaret. Her drukna han.

Tjodolv frå Kvine fortel om hendinga i Ynglingatal:

Feig var det sagt

at Fjolne var,

i garden hans Frode

han fekk det å kjenna

Der var han lagi,

at log åt mjødhorn

hans bane vart

i vindlaus sjø.

Fjolne er var til Svegde, som tok riket etter han.

Andre tilvisingar til Fjolne [endre]

Namnet Fjolne finst att i Grimnesmål, og er då eit av dei mange dekknamna til Odin. Sameleis nyttar Odin dette namnet om seg sjølv i Soga om Volsungane, der han helsar Sigurd Fåvnesbane under dette namnet.

Det har vore påpeikt at det er eit litterært samantreff at namnet Fjolne går att som nemning på Odin og samstundes på ein son av Frøy. Dette kan vera ei samanblanding av namn, men og ei påminning om at Odin i nokre overleveringar har hatt Frøy som far. Ein meir tradisjonell Odin-variant er oppført øvst i lista over kongar i Svitjod hjå Snorre, før Ynglingeætta i røynda tek til med Njord. I Den eldste Noregshistoria står Ingve øvst i denne lista, heller enn Odin. Ingve er rekna som far til Njord i denne teksten. Det er soleis Snorre som har sett Odin inn øvst i kongerekka.

Notes for Fjolne Yngvi-Freysson

Dødrukken, skulle finne et sted å sove, mistet fotfestet og falt i mjødkaret og druknet.

Fjølner, Yngve Freys Søn, forstod at vedligeholde samme Fred og Lykke. Paa et Besøg hos den danske Konge Frode Fredgode omkom han ved at falde nedgjennem en Aabning i Gulvet i et Mjødkar, der var stort nok til at lade den berusede Konge drukne deri.

14. OF KING FJOLNE'S DEATH.

Fjolne, Yngve Frey's son, ruled thereafter over the Swedes and

the Upsal domains. He was powerful, and lucky in seasons and in

holding the peace. Fredfrode ruled then in Leidre, and between

them there was great friendship and visiting. Once when Fjolne

went to Frode in Sealand, a great feast was prepared for him, and

invitations to it were sent all over the country. Frode had a

large house, in which there was a great vessel many ells high,

and put together of great pieces of timber; and this vessel stood

in a lower room. Above it was a loft, in the floor of which was

an opening through which liquor was poured into this vessel. The

vessel was full of mead, which was excessively strong. In the

evening Fjolne, with his attendants, was taken into the adjoining

loft to sleep. In the night he went out to the gallery to seek a

certain place, and he was very sleepy and exceedingly drunk. As

he came back to his room he went along the gallery to the door of

another left, went into it, and his foot slipping, he fell into

the vessel of mead and was drowned. So says Thjodolf of Kvine:

--

"In Frode's hall the fearful word,

The death-foreboding sound was heard:

The cry of fey denouncing doom,

Was heard at night in Frode's home.

And when brave Frode came, he found

Swithiod's dark chief, Fjolne, drowned.

In Frode's mansion drowned was he,

Drowned in a waveless, windless sea."

Ruled the Swedes after his father's death.

Heimskringla, Ynglinga Saga, Section 14

Grottasöngr relates that he was the contemporary of Caesar Augustus. Fjölnir was a mighty king and the crops were bountiful and peace was maintained. At his time, king Fróði ruled in Lejre in Zealand. The two kings were great friends and they often visited each other, but their friendship was to cause them to inadvertently kill each other. Grottisong relates that when Frodi once visited Uppsala he bought two giantesses, Fenja and Menja, but they were to be his undoing (see Grottasöngr).

Heimskringla relates that he was the son of Freyr himself and the giantess Gerd, but he was the first of his house who was not to be deified. Once Fjölnir went to see Frodi in Zealand and a great feast had been prepared to which many people were invited. Frodi had a large house where he stored a huge vessel full of very strong mead. Above the vessel there was an opening in the ceiling from which mead was poured into it, by men standing in the loft above. After the banquet, Fjölnir was taken to stay the night in an adjoining loft. However, at night he felt that all the mead he had drunk forced him to leave his bed and to seek his way out into the bushes to relieve himself. Since he was very drunk and very tired he stumbled through the wrong door and staggered across the floor above the vessel. He slipped and fell through the opening into the vessel of mead where he drowned.
