About Raum The Old Norsson

Raum er nevnt i "Hvordan Norge ble bosatt" fra Flateyarbok:

"Raum, sønn av kong Nor, tok riket etter far sin. Han hadde Alfheim og et rike så vidt som elvene rant, der som de oppstod. Derfra falt Lågen øst gjennom dalen til Mjøsa, så Vorma i Glomma og denne til havet. Fra Vorma renner Rauma gjennom Romsdalen. Fra Vorma renner Eystrielva gjennom Østerdalen og til Veneren og derfra gjennom Gøtaelv til havet.

Kong Raum hadde drikkelag i jula med Bergfinn, sønn av Thrym jotun fra Vorma og gikk da i seng med Bergdis, hans søster. Etter dette fikk hun tre sønner: Bjørn, Brand og Alf. Alf ble fostret av Bergfinn og ble kalt Finnalf. Bjørn bodde hos sin mor og ble kalt Jotunbjørn. Hun sendte Brand til Rauma, hans far, som ga ham til gudene; han ble kalt Gudbrand. Kong Raum ga ham den dalen som het Gudbrandsdalen, Jotunbjørn ga han Raumsdal og Alf Østerdalen og alt nord for Veneren og fra Gøtaelv og nord til Glomma. Dette ble da kalt Alfheim."

....

"Raum den gamle fikk senere Hild, datter til Gudrød den gamle, sønn til kong Sølve, som først ryddet der det nå heter Solør. Og sønnene hans var Gudrød, Hauk, Hadding og Hring."

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

Raum átti 2 bræður - Þrandur og Garður

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

Raum inherited south-eastern Norway and also the northwestern valley of the Rauma river to the western sea which waters the region called Raums Dale (modern Romsdal). Raum in this account also ruled the land of Álfheim to the south.

In Heversu Noregr byggdist, Raum is one of the three sons of Nór, the legendary first king of Norway, and succeeds his father as a ruler and ancestor of rulers over southwestern Norway.

Raum attended a Yule feast given by Bergfin (Bergfinn) son of Thrym (Þrymr) the Giant of Vermland and bedded Bergfin's sister Bergdís (Bergdísr). Bergdís subsequently bore three sons: Björn (Bjǫrn 'bear'), Brand (Brandr 'sword'), and Álf (Álfr 'elf'). Álf was fostered by Bergfin himself and so became known as Finnálf (Finnálfr). Björn was kept by his mother and his name was expanded to Jötunbjörn (Jǫtunbjǫrn 'Giant-bear'). Brand was sent to his father Raum who dedicated him to the gods (whatever that means exactly), and so he was afterwards known as Gudbrand (Guðbrandr 'God-sword').

Later Raum married Hild the daughter of Gudröd the Old (Guðrǫðr inn gamli) the son of King Sölvi (Sǫlvi) who first ruled the land now called Sóleyjar (the modern region of Solør comprising the municipalities of Grue, Åsnes, and Våler).

However the Ynglinga saga says that Sölvi the Old who first cleared Sóleyar lived much later, making this Sölvi to be the father of a second Sölvi, the father of Halfdan Goldtooth (Hálfdanr Gulltanni), the father of Sólveig or Sölva who married Ólaf Woodcutter (Ólafr Trételgja). But Af Upplendinga Konungum claims that Olaf's wife Sölva was the sister of King Sölvi the Old.

By his wfie Hild, Raum became father of four legitimate sons: Gudröd, Hauk (Haukr) or Höd (Hǫðr), Hadding (Haddingr), and Hring (Hringr).
