About Kari "Wind" Fornjotsson, King of Kvenland

Konge etter faren i Nord Skandinavia (Kvenland, Finland og Gotland)

Legendary figure in Finland.

His legend comes out of the "Orkneyinga Saga":

"Fornjot had three sons; one was named Hler, whom we call Ægir, the second Logi, the third Kari; he was the father of Frost, the father of Snow the old" (quoted from http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/ice/is3/is302.htm)

Birth date is a complete guess. -------------------- Fornjót's son Kári is mentioned in Skáldskaparmál as a term for wind. In the Hversu and Orkneyinga saga accounts Kári appears to be the heir to his father's kingdoms, as in the Hversu account Kári's descendants emerge not only as rulers of Finland and Kvenland, but also Sweden, and then through Viking and Varangian conquests many other nations as well.
