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

White Leg founded the pagan temple at Skiringssal.

Those of the Swedes who had more understanding found that the dear times proceeded from there being a greater number of people on the land than it could support, and that the king could not be blamed for this. They took the resolution, therefore, to cross the Eida forest with all their men, and came quite unexpectedly into Soleyar, where they put to death King Solve, and took Halfdan Hvitbein prisoner, and made him their chief, and gave him the title of king. Thereupon he subdued Soleyar, and proceeding with his army into Raumarike, plundered there, and laid that district also in subjection by force of arms.

Halfdan Hvitbein became a great king. He was married to Aasa, a daughter of Eystein the Severe, who was king of the Upland people, and ruled over Hedemark. Halfdan and Aasa had two sons, Eystein and Gudrod. Halfdan subdued a great part of Hedemark, Toten, Hadeland, and much of Westfold. He lived to be an old man, and died in his bed at Toten, from whence his body was transported to Westfold, and was buried under a mound at a place called Skaereid, at Skiringsale. So says Thjodolf:

"Halfdan, esteemed by friends and foes,

Receives at last life's deep repose:

The aged man at last, though late,

Yielded in Toten to stern fate.

At Skiringsale hangs o'er his grave

A rock, that seems to mourn the brave Halfdan,

to chiefs and people dear,

Received from all a silent tear." - [1]

Halfdan Hvitbeinn was the son of Olof Trätälja of the House of Yngling according to Heimskringla.

His father was sacrificed to Odin by the Swedish settlers in Värmland because of a famine. Some Swedes, however, realised that the famine was brought by overpopulation and not by the fact that the king had been neglecting his religious duties.

Consequently, they resolved to cross the Ed Forest and settle in Norway and happened to end up in Soleyar (Solør) where they killed king Sölve and took Halfdan prisoner. The Swedish expatriates elected Halfdan king as he was the son of their old king, Olof. Halfdan subjugated all of Soleyar and took his army into Romerike and subjugated that province as well.

Halfdan was to become a great king, who married Åsa, the daughter of king Eystein, the ruler of Oppland and Hedmark. They had two sons, Öystein Halfdansson and Gudröd.

Halfdan conquered a large part of Hedemark, Toten, Hadeland and a part of Westfold. When his brother Ingjald Olofsson died, he inherited Wermelandia. Halfdan died of old age in Toten and was transported to Westfold where he was buried under a mound at a place called Skaereid, at Skiringsale.

48. HALFDAN HVITBEIN MADE KING.

Those of the Swedes who had more understanding found that the

dear times proceeded from there being a greater number of people

on the land than it could support, and that the king could not be

blamed for this. They took the resolution, therefore, to cross

the Eida forest with all their men, and came quite unexpectedly

into Soleyar, where they put to death King Solve, and took

Halfdan Hvitbein prisoner, and made him their chief, and gave him

the title of king. Thereupon he subdued Soleyar, and proceeding

with his army into Raumarike, plundered there, and laid that

district also in subjection by force of arms.

49. OF HALFDAN HVITBEIN.

Halfdan Hvitbein became a great king. He was married to Aasa, a

daughter of Eystein the Severe, who was king of the Upland

people, and ruled over Hedemark. Halfdan and Aasa had two sons,

Eystein and Gudrod. Halfdan subdued a great part of Hedemark,

Toten, Hadeland, and much of Westfold. He lived to be an old

man, and died in his bed at Toten, from whence his body was

transported to Westfold, and was buried under a mound at a place

called Skaereid, at Skiringsale. So says Thjodolf: --

"Halfdan, esteemed by friends and foes,

Receives at last life's deep repose:

The aged man at last, though late,

Yielded in Toten to stern fate.

At Skiringsale hangs o'er his grave

A rock, that seems to mourn the brave Halfdan,

to chiefs and people dear,

Received from all a silent tear."

The historicity of the kings described in that saga is generally not accepted by modern historians.

He was the son of Olof Trätälja of the House of Yngling. His father was sacrificed to Odin by the Swedish settlers in Värmland because of a famine. Some Swedes, however, realised that the famine was brought by overpopulation and not by the fact that the king had been neglecting his religious duties.

Consequently, they resolved to cross the Ed Forest and settle in Norway and happened to end up in Soleyar where they killed king Sölve and took Halfdan prisoner. The Swedish expatriates elected Halfdan king as he was the son of their old king, Olof. Halfdan subjugated all of Soleyar and took his army into Romerike and subjugated that province as well.

Halfdan was to become a great king, who married Åsa, the daughter of king Eystein, the ruler of Oppland and Hedmark. They had two sons, Öystein Halfdansson and Gudröd.

Halfdan conquered a large part of Hedemark, Toten, Hadeland and a part of Vestfold. When his brother Ingjald Olofsson died, he inherited Värmland. Halfdan died of old age in Toten and was transported to Vestfold where he was buried under a mound in Skiringssal.

Biografi

Kung i Värmland, Svitjod och Norge. Född 685 i Värmland, Svitjod. Död 715 i Toten Oppland, Norge. Olof Trätälja blev aldrig kung i Uppsala som sina förfäder, men han var den siste av Ynglingaätten som levde i Sverige. Hans son Halvdan Vitben drog med en här vidare västerut och lade under sig ett område i södra Norge. (Källa: Gåtfulla platser i Sverige, sid 227, Stig Linnell) Halfdan 'Vitben', gift med Åsa som var dotter till kungen i Oppland, Eystein 'Hårdråde'. Halfdan var en mäktig kung. Halfdan tog stora delar av Hedmark, Toten, Hedaland och mycket av Vestvold. Efter sin bror Ingjalds död lade han också dennes kungadöme i Värmland under sig. Halfdan blev en mycket gammal man och dog av sjukdom på Toten, Oppland och är höglagd i Vestvold. Makarna hade två söner, Eystein och Gundröd. (Källa: Heimskringla, Ynglingasagan)

Halfdan Whiteshanks (Old Norse: Hálfdan hvítbeinn) was a mythical petty king in Norway, described in Ynglinga saga. The following description is based on the account in Ynglinga saga, written in the 1220s by Snorri Sturluson. The historicity of the kings described in that saga is generally not accepted by modern historians.

He was the son of Olof Trätälja of the House of Yngling. His father was sacrificed to Odin by the Swedish settlers in Värmland because of a famine. Some Swedes, however, realised that the famine was brought by overpopulation and not by the fact that the king had been neglecting his religious duties.

Consequently, they resolved to cross the Ed Forest and settle in Norway and happened to end up in Soleyar where they killed king Sölve and took Halfdan prisoner. The Swedish expatriates elected Halfdan king as he was the son of their old king, Olof. Halfdan subjugated all of Soleyar and took his army into Romerike and subjugated that province as well.

Halfdan was to become a great king, who married Åsa, the daughter of king Eystein, the ruler of Oppland and Hedmark. They had two sons, Öystein Halfdansson and Gudröd.

Halfdan conquered a large part of Hedemark, Toten, Hadeland and a part of Vestfold. When his brother Ingjald Olofsson died, he inherited Värmland. Halfdan died of old age in Toten and was transported to Vestfold where he was buried under a mound in Skiringssal.

48. HALFDAN HVITBEIN MADE KING.

Those of the Swedes who had more understanding found that the

dear times proceeded from there being a greater number of people

on the land than it could support, and that the king could not be

blamed for this. They took the resolution, therefore, to cross

the Eida forest with all their men, and came quite unexpectedly

into Soleyar, where they put to death King Solve, and took

Halfdan Hvitbein prisoner, and made him their chief, and gave him

the title of king. Thereupon he subdued Soleyar, and proceeding

with his army into Raumarike, plundered there, and laid that

district also in subjection by force of arms.

49. OF HALFDAN HVITBEIN.

Halfdan Hvitbein became a great king. He was married to Aasa, a

daughter of Eystein the Severe, who was king of the Upland

people, and ruled over Hedemark. Halfdan and Aasa had two sons,

Eystein and Gudrod. Halfdan subdued a great part of Hedemark,

Toten, Hadeland, and much of Westfold. He lived to be an old

man, and died in his bed at Toten, from whence his body was

transported to Westfold, and was buried under a mound at a place

called Skaereid, at Skiringsale. So says Thjodolf: --

"Halfdan, esteemed by friends and foes,

Receives at last life's deep repose:

The aged man at last, though late,

Yielded in Toten to stern fate.

At Skiringsale hangs o'er his grave

A rock, that seems to mourn the brave Halfdan,

to chiefs and people dear,

Received from all a silent tear."

At Skiringsale hangs o'er his grave

A rock, that seems to mourn the brave Halfdan,

to chiefs and people dear,

Received from all a silent tear."

Några svenskar tyckte att det var orättvist att man gett hans far skulden för hungersnöden, eftersom den berodde på överbefolkning. Man dödade Solve och tog tillbaka Halfdan som en fånge, satt honom som hövding och sedermera blev han en stor kung av vestfold. Han dog i sin säng i hög ålder.

23. HALFDAN HVITBEIN "WHITE LEG," who was king in Denmark about 710. Halfdan was brought up by his uncle Solve, the brother of Halfdan's mother. Some of the Swedes decided it had been unfair to blame Halfdan's father for the famine, and the real cause was overpopulation, so they sent a force against Solve, killed him, and brought Halfdan back as a prisoner. Halfdan was made a chieftain and later became a great king in Vescfold. He married Aase, daughter of Eystein The Severe, King of Hedmark and Upland. Halfdan died in his bed as an old man in 740. Aase and Halfdan's son was:

Halfdan Whiteshanks (Old Norse: Hálfdan hvítbeinn) was a mythical petty king in Norway, described in the Ynglinga saga. The following description is based on the account in Ynglinga saga, written in the 1220s by Snorri Sturluson. The historicity of the kings described in that saga is generally not accepted by modern historians.

He was the son of Olof Trätälja of the House of Yngling. His father was sacrificed to Odin by the Swedish settlers in Värmland because of a famine. Some Swedes, however, realised that the famine was brought by overpopulation and not by the fact that the king had been neglecting his religious duties.

Consequently, they resolved to cross the Ed Forest and settle in Norway and happened to end up in Soleyar where they killed king Sölve and took Halfdan prisoner. The Swedish expatriates elected Halfdan king as he was the son of their old king, Olof. Halfdan subjugated all of Soleyar and took his army into Romerike and subjugated that province as well.

Halfdan was to become a great king, who married Åsa, the daughter of king Eystein, the ruler of Oppland and Hedmark. They had three sons, Öystein Halfdansson, Eystein Halfdansson, and Gudröd.

Halfdan conquered a large part of Hedemark, Toten, Hadeland and a part of Vestfold. When his brother Ingjald Olofsson died, he inherited Värmland. Halfdan died of old age in Toten and was transported to Vestfold where he was buried under a mound in Skiringssal.

-------------------- Halvdan was the first of Uppsala family to be born in Norway. He was fostered by his mothers family in Solør and became a mighty king over hinterlands, Hedmark, Toten and Vermland plus Vestfold. Halvdan died of desease (plague?) at Toten. His corpse was transfered to Tjølling in Vestfold, where he was buried in a barrow (hillock where the ancient Norsk were buried).

Halvdan var den første av Uppsala-ættens Ynglinger i Norge. Han ble oppfostret hos morsslekten i Solør og ble en mektig konge som hersket over Oppland, Hedmark, Toten og Vermland samt Vestfold. Halvdan døde sottedød på Toten. Liket ble ført til Tjølling i Vestfold, hvor han ble hauglagt. -------------------- BIOGRAFI:

Halvdan Kvitbein (levde ca. 710) var den første av ynglingesagaens konger som slo seg ned i Norge. Han var sønn av Olav Tretelgja og Solveig Halvdansdotter. Han var gift med Åsa Øysteinsdotter som han fikk sønnene Øystein Halvdansson og Gudrød Halvdansson med.

Halvdan og broren Ingjald Olavsson vokste opp på Solør hos deres mors onkel, Sølve.

Halvdans far ble ofret til Odin av de svenske nybyggerne i Värmland på grunn av uår, men da de senere oppdaget at uåret var grunnet i overbefolkning og ikke kongens handlinger valgte noen å krysse Eidskogen og slå seg ned i Solør. Her tok de Halvdan til konge siden han var sønn av deres gamle konge, Olav. De svenskene som ble igjen i Värmland tok hans bror Ingjald til konge.

Hva det beskrivende kallenavnet ‘Kvitbein’ står for er ikke helt klart, men kan være en karakteristikk av utseendet.

Halvdan ble etter sigende en stor konge som erobret store deler av Hedmark, Toten, Hadeland og deler av Vestfold. Da hans bror døde arvet han Värmland også. Selv døde Halvdan Kvitbein på Toten og ble hauglagt i Skæreid i Skiringsdal. -------------------- Misc. Notes

HALFDAN HVITBEIN MADE KING. Those of the Swedes who had more understanding found that the dear times proceeded from there being a greater number of people on the land than it could support, and that the king could not be blamed for this. They took the resolution, therefore, to cross the Eida forest with all their men, and came quite unexpectedly into Soleyar, where they put to death King Solve, and took Halfdan Hvitbein prisoner, and made him their chief, and gave him the title of king. Thereupon he subdued Soleyar, and proceeding with his army into Raumarike, plundered there, and laid that district also in subjection by force of arms. 49. OF HALFDAN HVITBEIN. Halfdan Hvitbein became a great king. He was married to Aasa, a daughter of Eystein the Severe, who was king of the Upland people, and ruled over Hedemark. Halfdan and Aasa had two sons, Eystein and Gudrod. Halfdan subdued a great part of Hedemark, Toten, Hadeland, and much of Westfold. He lived to be an old man, and died in his bed at Toten, from whence his body was transported to Westfold, and was buried under a mound at a place called Skaereid, at Skiringsale. So says Thjodolf: -- "Halfdan, esteemed by friends and foes, Receives at last life's deep repose: The aged man at last, though late, Yielded in Toten to stern fate. At Skiringsale hangs o'er his grave A rock, that seems to mourn the brave Halfdan, to chiefs and people dear, Received from all a silent tear." 50. OF INGJALD, BROTHER OF HALFDAN. Ingjald, Halfdan's brother, was king of Vermeland; but after his death King Halfdan took possession of Vermeland, raised scatt from it, and placed earls over it as long as he lived.
