Other notes

This rather coherent piece is given without a source:

Som søn af en voldtaget kvinde mentes Åle ikke egnet til tronarving; derfor overtog Frode magten efter sin fader. Men Åle blev viking; på grund af sit held i den håndtering fik han (til)navnet Åle hinn fræckne. Frode begyndte også at blive berømt for sine mange bedrifter og blev kald den Store eller Berømte. Han havde sit kongesæde i Lejre og Ringsted. Ligesom sin fader oprettede han en hird, hvor han underholdt adskillige krigere med kæmpekræfter, og i spidsen for dem satte han Starkad. Han havde også tolv jarler under sig.

Åle, der var Frodes halvbroder, erobrede nu ved en modig krigerisk indsats kongemagten i Sverige

Efter å ha sørget for drapet på sin halvbror Åle, besejrede kong Frode svenskekongen Jørund og gjorde ham skatskyldig; på samme måde gik det en svensk jarl ved navn Sverting. Frode bortførte også svenskekongens datter, med hvem han fik sønnen Halfdan. Hun var hans elskerinde. Senere giftede han sig og fik med denne kvinde en ægtefødt arving, sønnen Ingjald. Frodes søn Ingjald giftede sig med en datter af den førnævnte Sverting Jarl, efter alles mening for at gøre ham mere samarbejdsvillig.

-------------------- Frode - ruled Denmark at an uncertain date.

Another legendary descendant of Odin in Denmark was Frode, who is said to have made vassals of 225 other kings, thus extending his dominions from Russia to the Rhine. Frode, too, was beset with relatives who wished to take away his kingdom. One of these was Ubbe, who had married Frode's sister Ulfhild. While Frode was fighting wars in Russia and Ruthenia, Ubbe usurped the throne. Frode was forced to return to Denmark to reclaim his crown. He captured his brother-in-law Ubbe, took Ulfhild away from him, and wedded her to another man. [Royal Families of Medieval Scandinavia, Flanders, and Kiev]
