About Halvdan «the Meek» den Milde (Eysteinsson), King of Romerike / Vestfold

TEMP NOTE: I found that some profiles of Halfdan Sveidasson are also marked as "Milde", so I promoted his father's name to a more visible place, and moved "Milde" to the suffix field - Alvestrand.

He is NOT the father of Ivar Opplendingejarl.

Hálfdanar saga Eysteinssonar

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Hálfdanar saga Eysteinssonar is a legendary saga from early 14th century Iceland about Halfdan Eysteinsson. The main events appear to take place in the 9th century.

Halfdan's grandfather was Þrándr the eponymous king of Trondheim, who in turn was the son of Sæmingr the king of Halogaland and the son of Odin. Sæmingr had married Naumu who had given her name to Namdalen. Þrándr had married Dagmær, the sister of Svanhvít, the heroine of Hrómundar saga Gripssonar, and they had had the sons Eysteinn and Eirikr inn víðförli who is the hero of Eireks saga víðförla and discovered Ódáinsakr.

Eysteinn married Ása, the daughter of Sigurd Hart and Áslaug, the daughter of Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye. They had several sons among them Halfdan.

It deals with Eysteinn's adventures in Staraja Ladoga (Aldeigjuborg), his conquest of Alaborg and about the adventures of his son Halfdan.

52. OF HALFDAN THE MILD.

Halfdan was the name of King Eystein's son who succeeded him.

He was a great warrior, who had been long on viking cruises, and had collected great property. He was married to Liv, a daughter of King Dag of Westmare. Holtar, in Westfold,

was his chief house; and he died there on the bed of sickness, and was buried at Borre under a mound. So says Thjodolf: --

"By Hel's summons, a great king

Was called away to Odin's Thing:

King Halfdan, he who dwelt of late

At Holtar, must obey grim Fate.

At Borre, in the royal mound,

They laid the hero in the ground."

Halvdan den Milde og Mat-ille var ein konge av Ynglingeætta, far til Gudrød Veidekonge og farfar til Halvdan Svarte. Han var son av kong Øystein av ynglingeætta.

Han sat som konge i Holtar, no Holtan i Borre, og er gravlagd der. Han var gift med Liv, dotter til kong Dag på Vestmar, i dag eigna kring Langesund. Namnet og gravstaden hans tyder på ei lekk til Danmark (Borrestil).

Eystein, we are told, was succeeded by his son Halfdan the Generous and the Stingy of Food. Halfdan gained this title by paying his men generously in coin but poorly in food. He died of a malady, was duly buried in a mound beside his father Eystein, and was succeeded by his son Gudrod. Gudrod is considered to be a historical personage, although the tales that are told about him are no doubt at least partly legendary.

Halvdan den Milde og Mat-ille var ein konge av Ynglingeætta, far til Gudrød Veidekonge og farfar til Halvdan Svarte. Han var son av kong Øystein av ynglingeætta.

Han sat som konge i Holtar, no Holtan i Borre, og er gravlagd der. Han var gift med Liv, dotter til kong Dag på Vestmar, i dag eigna kring Langesund. Namnet og gravstaden hans tyder på ei lekk til Danmark (Borrestil).

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

Eystein, we are told, was succeeded by his son Halfdan the Generous and the Stingy of Food. Halfdan gained this title by paying his men generously in coin but poorly in food. He died of a malady, was duly buried in a mound beside his father Eystein, and was succeeded by his son Gudrod. Gudrod is considered to be a historical personage, although the tales that are told about him are no doubt at least partly legendary.

He was a great warrior, who had been long on Viking cruises, and had collected great property.

He married Hlíf Dagsdóttir, daughter of konung av Vestmörum Dagr av Vestmörum.

He died at Holtar, Vestfold, Norway, in his chief house, on the bed of sickness. He was buried in Borre, Raden, near Vodle, Vestfold, Norway, under a mound.

So says Thjodolf:

"By Hel's summons, a great king

Was called away to Odin's Thing:

King Halfdan, he who dwelt of late

At Holtar, must obey grim Fate.

At Borre, in the royal mound,

They laid the hero in the ground."

-------------------- Halfdan Hvitbeinn

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Halfdan Hvitbeinn (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.

He was king of Romerike and Vestfold.

He was said to be generous in gold but to starve his men with food. He was a great warrior who often pillaged and gathered great booty.

His wife was Liv, the daughter of king Dag of Vestmar. Halfdan the Mild died of illness in his bed.

He was succeeded by his son, Gudrød the Hunter.

According to the historian Halvdan Koht, Halfdan may have been the one to win independence for Vestfold during the turbulent years of 813-14. The Frankish annals state that the kings of Hedeby had to solve an uprising in Vestfold at this time. According to Ynglingatal, Halfdan´s people "gained victory" in this uprising, and Halfdan is thus the first independent ruler of Vestfold.

-------------------- Also called Halfdan the Old or Halfdan the Generous. He was quite old when he died in 802. Halfdan's wife, Liv, was a daughter of Dag, King of Westmare.

Halvdan bodde på Holtan gård i Borre. Folket hans fikk lite og dårlig kost og han ble derfor kalt matille. Han ble også kalt gavmilde da folket fikk like mange gullpenger som andre konger ga i sølvpenger. Halvdan ble gammel og døde i 802. Fra hans sønn Gudrød gjeve stammet de senere norske ynglinge-kongene, Halvdan svarte, Harald Hårfagre etc. -------------------- BIOGRAFI:

Halvdan Øysteinsson «den gavmilde og matille» er en av de småkongene fra Ynglingeætten som nevnes i Snorre Sturlasons Ynglingesaga i Heimskringla.[1]

Denne hovedsakelige legendariske sagaen er hovedkilden om Halvdan, bortsett fra et kvad av Tjodolv den kvinværske, som ble kvedet rundt 100-150 år senere, noe som indikerer en livlig muntlig tradisjon på Ynglingeætten. Halvdan er også så vidt nevnt i Historia Norvegiæ, skrevet en gang rundt 1170.

Snorre forteller at hans paradoksale tilnavn som «gavemild» og «matille» hadde sin årsak at han var rundhåndet i å lønne mennene sine i rede penger, «like mange gullmynter som andre konger ga sølvmynter», men samtidig sultet dem i kostholdet, uten at det oppgis noen grunn til misforholdet. Årsaken til den økonomiske velstanden var derimot at han hadde vært i viking i lange tider og på den måten skaffet seg store rikdommer.

I den grad Halvdan er historisk var han en småkonge på Vestfold og Romerike en gang kanskje sent på 700-tallet eller rundt 800. Han var sønn av Øystein Halvdansson og Hild, datter av Eirik Agnarsson fra Vestfold. Selv ble Halvdan gift med Liv, datter av en konge «Dag fra Vestmar». Det finnes ingen andre direkte referanser til Vestmar, men det kan ha vært et navn som pekte på kystlandet rundt Langesundsfjorden til Agder.[2] Det eneste avkom etter Halvdan som nevnes er hans direkte etterkommer, Gudrød Halvdansson Veidekonge (eller Stormodige). Gudrød var far til kong Halvdan Svarte og farfar til kong Harald Hårfagre.

Snorre oppgir også at Halvdans hovedgård var Holtan i Vestfold hvor han døde på sotteseng, og ble gravlagt i Borre. I sin oversettelse av Historia Norvegiæ bemerket Halvdan Koht: «No høyrer vi i frankiske krøniker, at i året 813 var det upprør på Vestfold imot dei danske kongane, og kanskje var det denne kong Halvdan som no gjorde Vestfold sjølvstendigt; Det kann vi ha eit minne um i at Tjodolv kallar mennene hans for 'dei som vann siger'»[3]

Tjodolvs kvad, som Halvdan Koht henviser til, har strofen «Og seierens menn / siden gjemte / budlungen / der i Borre». 'Budlungen' er et poetisk ord for konge. -------------------- King in the Vestfold. 'Milldi' AKA "the Old & Stingy".
