http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ingvar Ingvar or Yngvar Harra, Proto-Norse *Ingu-Hariz (d. early 7th century) was the son of Östen and reclaimed the Swedish throne for the House of Yngling after the Swedes had rebelled against Sölvi.

Snorri Sturluson relates in his Ynglinga saga that King Ingvar, Östen's son, was a great warrior who often spent time patrolling the shores of his kingdom fighting Danes and pirates from the east. King Ingvar finally came to a peace agreement with the Danes and could take care of the Estonian pirates.

He consequently started pillaging in Estonia in retribution, and one summer he arrived at a place called Stein (see also Sveigder). The Estonians (sýslu kind) assembled a great army in the interior and attacked King Ingvar in a great battle. The Estonian forces were too powerful and Ingvar fell and the Swedish forces retreated. Ingvar was buried in a mound at a place called Stone or Hill fort (at Steini) on the shores of Estonia (Aðalsýsla).

Snorri then quotes a stanza from Þjóðólfr of Hvinir's Ynglingatal:

   Þat stökk upp,
   at Yngvari
   Sýslu kind
   um sóat hafði,
   ok ljóshömum
   við lagar hjarta
   her Eistneskr
   at hilmi vá,
   ok austmarr
   jöfri sœnskum
   Gýmis ljóð
   at gamni kveðr.[1]

   Certain it is the Estland foe
   The fair-haired Swedish king laid low.
   On Estland's strand, o'er Swedish graves,
   The East Sea sings her song of waves;
   King Yngvar's dirge is ocean's roar
   Resounding on the rock-ribbed shore.[2]

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation (continuing after Eysteinn):

Hujus filius Ynguar, qui cognominatus est canutus, in expeditione occisus est in quadam insula Baltici maris, quæ ab indigenis Eysysla[1] vocatur. Iste ergo genuit Broutonund, quem Sigwardus frater suus [...][2].

His son Yngvar, nicknamed the Hoary, was killed by the inhabitants while campaigning on an island in the Baltic called Ösel. Yngvar bred Braut-Ånund, whose brother, Sigurd, [...][3]

Ynglingatal only mentions the location Sysla (area paying tribute), Historia Norwegiae only mentions that he died during a campaign on the island Eycilla, i.e. Eysysla (Ösel). In addition to his son Anund (Broutonund), it also adds second son named Sigvard.

Thorsteins saga Víkingssonar skips Ingvar's generation and makes his father Östen the father of Anund and grandfather of Ingjald. It adds a second son to Östen named Olaf, who was the king of Fjordane in Norway. -------------------- Av Ynglingaätten, död omkring år 600, nämns av Snorre Sturlasson i Ynglingasagan. Han var en sagokung vars existens inte är historiskt belagd.

Han är son till kung Öystein som blev innebränd i bygden Lovund av en jylländsk kung Sölve, som härskade över Svitjod tills svearna dräpte honom. Efter honom blev Ingvar Öysteinsson kung i Svitjod. Ingvar slöt fred med Danerna, och härjade sedan i Öster, där han föll en sommar i strid med Esterna. Han efterträddes av sin son Bröt-Anund -------------------- 36. OF YNGVAR'S FALL.

Yngvar, who was King Eystein's son, then became king of Sweden. He was a great warrior, and often lay out with his warships; for the Swedish dominions were much ravaged then by Danes and East-country men. King Yngvar made a peace with the Danes; but betook himself to ravaging the East country in return. One summer he went with his forces to Estland, and plundered at a place called Stein. The men of Estland came down from the interior with a great army, and there was a battle; but the army of the country was so brave that the Swedes could not withstand them, and King Yngvar fell, and his people fled. He was buried close to the seashore under a mound in Estland; and after this defeat the Swedes returned home. Thjodolf sings of it thus: --

"Certain it is the Estland foe The fair-haired Swedish king laid low. On Estland's strand, o'er Swedish graves, The East Sea sings her song of waves; King Yngvar's dirge is ocean's roar Resounding on the rock-ribbed shore."

-------------------- Yngvar Øysteinsson var ein konge av ynglingeætta, som av Øystein Adilsson, og far hans Braut-Ånund.

Han vart teken på og drepen under eit hertog til Estland, og er gravlagd i Adalsysla, ved Ösel.

Tjodolv frå Kvine seier i Ynglingatal:

Kunnugt var de, at konung Yngvar for Sysla-folke stupa laut Heren frå Estland ved Havsens hjarta den ljosleitte hovdingen i Hel drap. Auster-have havgudens kvæde syng ved haugen åt sviakongen.

Historia Norvegiæ fortel at Yngvar fall på ei øy i Austersjøen som er kalla Øysysla (Ösel). Forteljinga om Estland er ukjend her. I fotnota er det skriven at Øystein ofte vart kalla "hårut" i seinare ættelister.

-------------------- Yngvar Harra (or Ingvar) Proto-Norse *Ingu-Hariz (d. early 7th century) was the son of Östen and reclaimed the Swedish throne for the House of Yngling after the Swedes had rebelled against Sölvi.

Snorri Sturluson relates in his Ynglinga saga that King Ingvar, Östen's son, was a great warrior who often spent time patrolling the shores of his kingdom fighting Danes and pirates from the east. King Ingvar finally came to a peace agreement with the Danes and could take care of the Estonian pirates.

He consequently started pillaging in Estonia in retribution, and one summer he arrived at a place called Stein (see also Sveigder). The Estonians (sýslu kind) assembled a great army in the interior and attacked King Ingvar in a great battle. The Estonian forces were too powerful and Ingvar fell and the Swedish forces retreated. Ingvar was buried in a mound at a place called Stone or Hill fort (at Steini) on the shores of Estonia (Aðalsýsla).

Snorri then quotes a stanza from Þjóðólfr of Hvinir's Ynglingatal:

Þat stökk upp, at Yngvari Sýslu kind um sóat hafði, ok ljóshömum við lagar hjarta her Eistneskr at hilmi vá, ok austmarr jöfri sœnskum Gýmis ljóð at gamni kveðr.[1] Certain it is the Estland foe The fair-haired Swedish king laid low. On Estland's strand, o'er Swedish graves, The East Sea sings her song of waves; King Yngvar's dirge is ocean's roar Resounding on the rock-ribbed shore.[2]

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation (continuing after Eysteinn):

Hujus filius Ynguar, qui cognominatus est canutus, in expeditione occisus est in quadam insula Baltici maris, quæ ab indigenis Eysysla[1] vocatur. Iste ergo genuit Broutonund, quem Sigwardus frater suus [...][2].

His son Yngvar, nicknamed the Hoary, was killed by the inhabitants while campaigning on an island in the Baltic called Ösel. Yngvar bred Braut-Ånund, whose brother, Sigurd, [...][3]


Ynglingatal only mentions the location Sysla (area paying tribute), Historia Norwegiae only mentions that he died during a campaign on the island Eycilla, i.e. Eysysla (Ösel). In addition to his son Anund (Broutonund), it also adds second son named Sigvard.

Thorsteins saga Víkingssonar skips Ingvar's generation and makes his father Östen the father of Anund and grandfather of Ingjald. It adds a second son to Östen named Olaf, who was the king of Fjordane in Norway.

Yngvar, who was King Eystein's son, then became king of Sweden. He was a great warrior, and often lay out with his warships; for the Swedish dominions were much ravaged then by Danes and East-country men. King Yngvar made a peace with the Danes; but betook himself to ravaging the East country in return. One summer he went with his forces to Estland, and plundered at a place called Stein. The men of Estland came down from the interior with a great army, and there was a battle; but the army of the country was so brave that the Swedes could not withstand them, and King Yngvar fell, and his people fled. He was buried close to the seashore under a mound in Estland; and after this defeat the Swedes returned home. Thjodolf sings of it thus: --

"Certain it is the Estland foe The fair-haired Swedish king laid low. On Estland's strand, o'er Swedish graves, The East Sea sings her song of waves; King Yngvar's dirge is ocean's roar Resounding on the rock-ribbed shore."

-------------------- Yngvar Øysteinsson var ein konge av ynglingeætta, som av Øystein Adilsson, og far hans Braut-Ånund. Snorre Sturlason fortel at han var ein stor hermann, siglde mykje ute, og herja på mange land. Sviaveldet var mykje utsett for plyndring på hans tid. Han vart teken på og drepen under eit hertog til Estland, og er gravlagd i Adalsysla, ved Ösel.

Tjodolv frå Kvine seier i Ynglingatal:

Kunnugt var de, at konung Yngvar for Sysla-folke stupa laut Heren frå Estland ved Havsens hjarta den ljosleitte hovdingen i Hel drap. Auster-have havgudens kvæde syng ved haugen åt sviakongen.

Den eldste Noregshistoria [endre]

Historia Norvegiæ fortel at Yngvar fall på ei øy i Austersjøen som er kalla Øysysla (Ösel). Forteljinga om Estland er ukjend her. I fotnota er det skriven at Øystein ofte vart kalla "hårut" i seinare ættelister.

-------------------- Yngvar Øysteinsson var ein konge av ynglingeætta, som av Øystein Adilsson, og far hans Braut-Ånund. Snorre Sturlason fortel at han var ein stor hermann, siglde mykje ute, og herja på mange land. Sviaveldet var mykje utsett for plyndring på hans tid. Han vart teken på og drepen under eit hertog til Estland, og er gravlagd i Adalsysla, ved Ösel.

Tjodolv frå Kvine seier i Ynglingatal:

Kunnugt var de, at konung Yngvar for Sysla-folke stupa laut Heren frå Estland ved Havsens hjarta den ljosleitte hovdingen i Hel drap. Auster-have havgudens kvæde syng ved haugen åt sviakongen.

Den eldste Noregshistoria [endre]

Historia Norvegiæ fortel at Yngvar fall på ei øy i Austersjøen som er kalla Øysysla (Ösel). Forteljinga om Estland er ukjend her. I fotnota er det skriven at Øystein ofte vart kalla "hårut" i seinare ættelister.

-------------------- Yngvar Harra, en stor og drabelig Kriger, som søgte at rense Østersjøen fra en Mængde Vikinger, der saavel fra Danmark som andre Steder gjorde Sverige stor Skade ved sine Hærjinger. Under et Krigstog faldt han i Esthland. -------------------- Död: 610 Lettland

Noteringar Sveakonung i G:a Uppsala. Son till Östen. Han var en stor krigare. Svea rike hade då länge plundrats av både daner och "österledsmän". Kung Ingvar slöt fred med danerna och härjade i stället i österled. Men vid ett tillfälle, vid Stein i Estland, blev motståndarantalet för stort och Ingvar stupade. Han höglades vid själva havsstranden i Adalsyssla.

-------------------- ngvar or Yngvar Harra, Proto-Norse *Ingu-Hariz (d. early 7th century) was the son of Östen and reclaimed the Swedish throne for the House of Yngling after the Swedes had rebelled against Sölvi.

Snorri Sturluson relates in his Ynglinga saga that King Ingvar, Östen's son, was a great warrior who often spent time patrolling the shores of his kingdom fighting Danes and pirates from the east. King Ingvar finally came to a peace agreement with the Danes and could take care of the Estonian pirates.

He consequently started pillaging in Estonia in retribution, and one summer he arrived at a place called Stein (see also Sveigder). The Estonians (sýslu kind) assembled a great army in the interior and attacked King Ingvar in a great battle. The Estonian forces were too powerful and Ingvar fell and the Swedish forces retreated. Ingvar was buried in a mound at a place called Stone or Hill fort (at Steini) on the shores of Estonia (Aðalsýsla).

In 1040 he went as far as Afghanistan in his trip towards east.

His son Yngvar, nicknamed the Hoary, was killed by the inhabitants while campaigning on an island in the Baltic called Ösel. Yngvar bred Braut-Ånund, whose brother, Sigurd, Ynglingatal only mentions the location Sysla (area paying tribute), Historia Norwegiae only mentions that he died during a campaign on the island Eycilla, i.e. Eysysla (Ösel). In addition to his son Anund (Broutonund), it also adds second son named Sigvard.

Thorsteins saga Víkingssonar skips Ingvar's generation and makes his father Östen the father of Anund and grandfather of Ingjald. It adds a second son to Östen named Olaf, who was the king of Fjordane in Norway.

Snorri then quotes a stanza from Þjóðólfr of Hvinir's Ynglingatal:

Þat stökk upp, at Yngvari Sýslu kind um sóat hafði, ok ljóshömum við lagar hjarta her Eistneskr at hilmi vá, ok austmarr jöfri sœnskum Gýmis ljóð at gamni kveðr.[1] Certain it is the Estland foe The fair-haired Swedish king laid low. On Estland's strand, o'er Swedish graves, The East Sea sings her song of waves; King Yngvar's dirge is ocean's roar Resounding on the rock-ribbed shore.[2]

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation (continuing after Eysteinn):

Hujus filius Ynguar, qui cognominatus est canutus, in expeditione occisus est in quadam insula Baltici maris, quæ ab indigenis Eysysla[1] vocatur. Iste ergo genuit Broutonund, quem Sigwardus frater suus [...][2].

His son Yngvar, nicknamed the Hoary, was killed by the inhabitants while campaigning on an island in the Baltic called Ösel. Yngvar bred Braut-Ånund, whose brother, Sigurd, [...][3]

Ynglingatal only mentions the location Sysla (area paying tribute), Historia Norwegiae only mentions that he died during a campaign on the island Eycilla, i.e. Eysysla (Ösel). In addition to his son Anund (Broutonund), it also adds second son named Sigvard.

Thorsteins saga Víkingssonar skips Ingvar's generation and makes his father Östen the father of Anund and grandfather of Ingjald. It adds a second son to Östen named Olaf, who was the king of Fjordane in Norway.
