About Refil Björnsson, sea-king

Refil Björnsson

----------

Refil var son till sveakungen Björn Järnsida. Hervarar saga nämner ingenting om att Refil skulle ha varit kung av Svearike, men däremot att Refils son Erik Refilsson skall ha efterträdit Erik Björnsson som kung av svearna.

----------

According to Hervarar saga, Refil was a son of the Swedish king Björn Ironside and the brother of its next king Erik Björnsson. He appears in Hervarar saga and in Nafnaþulur. According to these sources, Refil was a great warlord and a sea-king who would have lived in the early 9th century.

It was Refil's son Erik Refilsson who inherited the Swedish throne upon Erik Björnsson's death, which suggests that Refil may not have been alive at the time.

According to Skáldskaparmál, Refil is also the name of the sword of Regin, brother of Fafnir.

Refil var sønn av Björn Ironside. Ifølge «Hervarar saga», var han en stor krigsherre og en rik konge ("mikill hermaðr ok allríkr konungr"). Kilde: Howards.net
