Snorre's "Introduction" says:

"Saa foretog Odin sig en Rejse mod Nord og kom til det Land, som de kaldte Reidgotaland, her tilegnede han sig alt, hvad han ønskede. Over det Land satte han sin Søn Skjold; hans Søn var Fridleif; derfra stammer den Slægt, der kaldes Skjoldunger; det er Danernes Konger."

LEIF, DANMARKS ANDEN KONGE Skjold havde en søn Leif, arving til hans rige. På hans tid levede folk så roligt og fredeligt, fortælles det, at intet manddrab blev begået, hvad der så sandelig står i modsætning til den tids skik. Danmarks konge Leif fik, efter den fredelige tilstand i landet på hans tid, navnet Fred-Leif eller Fridlev.
