Sigurd Hring (Old Norse: Sigurðr hringr (Hringr meaning 'Ring')) (ca 750) was a Swedish and Danish king mentioned in many old Scandinavian legends. According to Bósa saga ok Herrauds, there was once a saga on Sigurd Hring, but this saga is now lost. In the old sources, he is notable for winning the Battle of the Brávellir against Harald Wartooth and for being the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

Hervarar saga

The Hervarar saga tells that when Valdar died, his son Randver became the king of Denmark, while Harald Wartooth became the king of Götaland or Gotland. Then Harald conquered all of his father Ivar Vidfamne's territory. After Randver's death, his son Sigurd Hring became the king of Denmark, presumably as the subking of Harald. Sigurd Ring and Harald fought the Battle of the Brávellir on the plains of Östergötland where Harald and many of his men died. Sigurd ruled Denmark until his death and was succeeded by his son Ragnar Lodbrok. Harald Wartooth's son Eysteinn Beli ruled Sweden until he was killed by the sons of Ragnar Lodbrok.

[edit] Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum

In Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum, Sigurd is the paternal nephew of the Danish king Harald Wartooth, and presumably (the part of Sögubrot where this would have been narrated expressly has not been preserved) the son of Randver, who in his turn is the son of Harald's mother Auðr the Deep-Minded and her husband king Raðbarðr of Gardariki. Harald Wartooth was beginning to feel old he made Ring the king of Sweden and Västergötland. Ring beat his uncle at the colossal Battle of Bråvalla, and became the ruler of Denmark as well. He made a shieldmaiden the ruler of Denmark (cf. Chronicon Lethrense, below).

Sigurd married Alfhild, the daughter of king Alf of Alfheim. Together with Alfhild, he had the son Ragnar Lodbrok.

As Sigurd grew old, distant parts of his realm began to secede, and it is told how he lost England due to old age. One day, he was in Västergötland and was visited by his brothers-in-law, the sons of Gandalf. They asked him to join them in attacking king Eysteinn of Vestfold in Norway. In Vestfold, there were great blóts held at Skiringssal. Unfortunately, Sögubrot (meaning the "fragment") ends there. However, the Skjöldunga saga is believed to be the original story on which Sögubrot is based and it continues the story (see below).

[edit] Skjöldunga saga

The Skjöldunga saga tells that Sigurd Ring was married to Alfhild, the daughter of king Alf of Alfheim, and their son was Ragnar Lodbrok. Unfortunately, Alfhild died. When Sigurd Ring was an old man, he came to Skiringssal to take part in the great blóts. There he spotted a very beautiful girl named Alfsol, and she was the daughter of King Alf of Vendel (Vendsyssel). The girl's two brothers refused to allow Sigurd to marry her. Sigurd fought with the brothers and killed them, but their sister had been given poison by her brothers so that Sigurd could never have her. When her corpse was carried to Sigurd, he went aboard a large ship where he placed Alvsol and her brothers. Then, he steered the ship with full sails out on the sea, as the ship burnt.

Ragnar Lodbrok succeeded his father, but put a subking on the throne of Sweden, king Eysteinn Beli, who later was killed by Ragnar's sons.

[edit] Gesta Danorum

According to Gesta Danorum (book 7), by Saxo Grammaticus, Hring was the son of the Swedish king Ingjald (Ingild) and the maternal nephew of the Danish king Harald Wartooth. His father Ingjald had raped the sister of Harald, but the latter did not mind in order preserve the friendship with Ingjald. Ring fought with Harald Wartooth in the Battle of the Brávellir and became the king of Denmark as well. Saxo then describes the different subkings and their adventures. In book 9, he returns to Sigurd Hring as Siward, surnamed Hring, the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

[edit] Other sources

According to Hversu Noregr byggdist, Sigurd was the son of Randver, the brother of Harald Wartooth. Randver and Harald were the sons of Hrærekr slöngvanbaugi.

In the part of the Heimskringla called the Saga of Harald Fairhair, Harald Fairhair learns that the Swedish king Erik Eymundsson had enlarged Sweden westwards, until it reached the same extent as it had during king Sigurd Ring and his son Ragnar Lodbrok. This included Romerike, Westfold all the way to Grenmar, and Vingulmark.

In Ragnar Lodbrok's saga, it is mentioned that Sigurd Ring and Harald Wartooth fought in the Battle of the Brávellir and that Harald fell. After the battle Sigurd Ring was the king of Denmark, and he was the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

Ragnarssona þáttr only states that Ring was the king of Sweden and Denmark, and the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

In Bósa saga ok Herrauds, it is only said that Sigurd Ring, the father of Ragnar Lodbrok fought with Harald Wartooth at the Battle of the Brávellir where Harald died. It adds that there was a saga on Sigurd Ring (which today no longer exists).

According to the Chronicon Lethrense, Harald Wartooth had made all the countries down to the Mediterranean pay tribute. However, when he went to Sweden to demand tribute, the Swedish king Ring met him at the Battle of the Brávellir, and Harald lost and died. Hring made a shieldmaiden the ruler of Denmark (cf. Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum, above).

Gríms saga loðinkinna and the younger version of Orvar-Odd's saga only mention Sigurd Hring in a few lines relating to the Battle of the Brávellir with Harald Wartooth.

In Norna-Gests þáttr, it is said that Sigurd Hring was very old when Sigurd's sons-in-law, the sons of Gandalf, asked him to help them fight against Sigurd Fafnisbani and the Gjukungs. Sigurd Ring could not help them in person, as he was busy fighting against ravaging Curonians and Kœnir.

               Challenged his uncle Harald Hilditonn or Wartooth. Early sources are almost unanimous in describing Sigurd Hring as Harald's nephew; but thereafter a tangle of witness makes him a sub-king in Denmark, in Sweden, in East Gautland, or in Sweden and East Gautland together. The first of these appears the least likely. If Hring existed at all, he existed east of the Oresund. The rivalry of Harald and Hring led to the battle of Bravellir, a clash as famous in northern story as Hrolf's last stand at Lejre, and equally embellished with fictions. Harald came to earn the dislike of his subjects for old age and cruelty, and they planned to get rid of him by some ignoble stratagem. He preferred to die in battle and sent a challenge to King Hring. Each monarch collected a great host, with champions drawn from every northern nation. The armies came formally to the place of slaughter, probably near Braviken, north of modern Norrkoping, on the NE boundary of East Gautland. Here they were drawn up in battle order and harangued by Harald and Hring. Then the trumpets sounded and the carnage
               began. When it was over, only Harald was dead, tumbled from his chariot and clubbed to death by Odinn, who thus gathered him to his peers in Valhalla. Hring treated his uncle's corpse with Honour; according to Icelandic sources he was conveyed in his chariot into a cairn filled with the donated treasures of the victors; according to Saxo he was burned on a sumptuous pyre. So ended the
               Bravic War. [A History of the Vikings, pp. 53-4]

               A claimant to the throne of Denmark in the Civil War of 812. The name "Sigurd Ring" is really fictional, though famous because of the sagas. Sigifrid was nepos of Godefrid, and Anulo was nepos of the former king Harald. Both were killed in the resulting struggle, but Anulo's party won, and his brothers became kings. It is unclear whether the two factions in this civil war (i.e., the relatives of Harald vs. the relatives of Godefrid) were two different families or two different branches of the same family. This battle in 812 was the ultimate source of the famous (but fictional) "Battle of Bravalla" which is a part of the pseudohistory given by the sagas. The two claimants, Sigifired
               (i.e., Sigurd) and Anulo (confused with the Latin word for ring, annulus, and translated as "Ring"), were combined into the mythical "Sigurd Ring", who was made the victor (and survivor) of the battle, and Harald was transformed into the loser.
               Anulo was a son of Halfdan/Halptani and a brother of Harald, Reginfrid, and Hemming. [Anders Berg - anderzb@algonet.se]

He made a shieldmaiden the ruler of Denmark (cf. Chronicon Lethrense, below).

Sigurd married Alfhild, the daughter of king Alf of Alfheim. Together with Alfhild, he had the son Ragnar Lodbrok.

Whether Sigurd Ring ever existed or not depends on how much you want to bend the definition of the word "existed". There were two kings Sigifridus and Anulo [whose name became mistranslated as "Ring" due to the similarity with Latin "anulus" ("ring")] who fought each other in 812 for the Danish throne, both of whom were killed in the struggle.

Later pseudohistorians combined these failed claimants into one person, the mythical Sigurd Ring, and turned him into a mythical conqueror of Denmark and Sweden.

Sigurd RING Randversson (ca 730 - 812); småkung i Svealand och Västergötland, som vann den nordiska historiens största drabbning vid Bråvalla år 750, där hans fars halvbror danakungen Harald Hildetand stupade. Sigurd hustru hette Alfhild GANDOLFSDOTTER (ca 735 - efter 770).

Sigurd, Sigvard eller Sigfred, søn af Randver, blev udnævnt til underkonge i Nordsverige og Vestfold (område i Norge, eller Norge) af sin faders halvbroder, Harald Hildetand, som han slog i 770-72 i det der siden er kendt som Bråvallaslaget. Derefter blev han dansk enekonge. Han modtog svogeren, hertug Widukind af Engern, som flygtning i 777 og 782. Han sendte sin yngste broder, halfdan, som gesandt til Karl den Stores rigsdag i Lippspringe i 782 og modtog gesandter fra Karl den Store i 798. Kort tid efter døde han.

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

Sigurd Ring, kung av Sverige och Danmark, med säte på Kinnekulle i Västergötland. Son till Randver av Svitjod. Satt som lydkonung i Sverige, under sin halvfarbror Harald Hildetand. Stred mot kung Harald och besegrade honom i slaget vid Bråvalla som låg i Skatelöfs socken ca år 750, varefter även Östergötland införlivades i riket. Han var gift med Alfhild, dotter till en kung Alf.

När han blev gammal blev han dock förälskad i Alfsol av Vendsyssel. Men han fick inte gifta sig med henne. Sigurd Ring höll slag med hennes bröder och besegrade dem, men blev dödligt sårad i striden. Alvsol hade emellertid redan dödats med gift före striden för att inte hamna i segrarens händer.

Sigurd Ring lät sig nu, tillsammans med den döda Alvsol och hennes döda bröder, bäras ombord på sitt skepp. Sedan han låtit antända skeppet styrde han ut detta till havs och försvann i lågor och vågor. Rimligtvis är det inte denne Sigurd Ring som sägs vara höglagd på Valsgärde utanför Uppsala.

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

Sigurðr hringr, Sigurd Ring (ca 750) was a Swedish king mentioned in sources such as the Heimskringla, Gesta Danorum, Hervarar Saga and Sögubrot af Nokkrum. He is of disputed historicity.

He was the nephew of the Danish king Harald Hildetand who put him on the Swedish throne. He beat his uncle at the colossal Battle of Bråvalla, and became the ruler of Denmark as well.

He ruled until he became very old. Then he fell in love with a beautiful girl, Alvsol of Vendsyssel, but was not allowed to marry her. Sigurd attacked Alvsol's brothers, but was mortally wounded during the battle. Alvsol had already died of poison so as not to be taken by Sigurd.

Sigurd had the girl and her brothers put on a ship which he steered out to the sea as the ship burnt.

He was the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

From Heimskringla, Harald Harfager's Saga:

"14. HARALD AND THE SWEDISH KING EIRIK.

King Harald came with his fleet eastward to Viken and landed at Tunsberg, which was then a trading town. He had then been four years in Throndhjem, and in all that time had not been in Viken. Here he heard the news that Eirik Eymundson, king of Sweden, had laid under him Vermaland, and was taking scat or land-tax from all the forest settlers; and also that he called the whole country north to Svinasund, and west along the sea, West Gautland; and which altogether he reckoned to his kingdom, and took land-tax from it. Over this country he had set an earl, by name Hrane Gauzke, who had the earldom between Svinasund and the Gaut river, and was a mighty earl. And it was told to King Harald that the Swedish king said he would not rest until he had as great a kingdom in Viken as Sigurd Hring, or his son Ragnar Lodbrok, had possessed; and that was Raumarike and Vestfold, all the way to the isle Grenmar, and also Vingulmark, and all that lay south of it. In all these districts many chiefs, and many other people, had given obedience to the Swedish king. King Harald was very angry at this, and summoned the bondes to a Thing at Fold, where he laid an accusation against them for treason towards him. Some bondes defended themselves from the accusation, some paid fines, some were punished. He went thus through the whole district during the summer, and in harvest he did the same in Raumarike, and laid the two districts under his power. Towards winter he heard that Eirik king of Sweden was, with his court, going about in Vermaland in guest-quarters."

Kung Harald kom med sin flotta österut till Viken och landade på Tunsberg , som då var en handelsstad . Han hade då varit fyra år i Trondheim , och under hela den tiden hade inte varit i Viken. Här hörde han nyheten att Eirik Eymundson , kung av Sverige , hade lagt under sig Värmaland och var med scat eller mark - skatt från alla skogen bosättare , och även att han kallade hela landet norr till Svinesund , och västerut längs havet , Västra Götland , och som helt och hållet han räknas till sitt rike och tog mark skatt från det. Över detta land han hade satt en jarl vid namn Hrane Gauzke , som hade det grevskap mellan Svinesund och Älven och var en mäktig jarl . Och det var sagt att kung Harald att den svenska kungen sade att han inte skulle vila förrän han hade så stor rike i Viken som Sigurd Hring , eller hans son Ragnar Lodbrok var besatt , och det var Raumarike och Vestfold, hela vägen till isle Grenmar och även Vingulmark , och alla som låg söder om den. I alla dessa områden många hövdingar , och många andra människor, hade lydnad till den svenska kungen. Kung Harald var mycket arg över detta, och kallade bönderna till ting i Vik , där han som en anklagelse mot dem för förräderi mot honom. Vissa bönderna försvarade sig från anklagelsen , vissa betalat böter var några straffas. Han gick alltså igenom hela stadsdelen under sommaren , och skörd han gjorde samma sak i Raumarike och lade två distrikten under hans makt. Mot vintern han hörde att Eirik kung av Sverige , med sitt hov , som går omkring i Värmaland i gäst - håll. " 3

Sigurd gifte sig .

Hans slægtsskab med tidligere konger kendes ikke. En bestemt Halfdan dukker op som udsending fra kong Sigfried til Karl den Store i året 782. Sigfried nævnes senest i 798, da Karl den Store sendte en gesant til kong Sigfried. Den saksiske høvding Widukind flygtede til kong Sigfried i 777, da Widukind forgæves havde forsøgt at samle Saxerne til modstand mod Karl den Store. To gange måtte han flygte til sin svoger kong Sigfred af Danmark-Sverige. Det stordanske rige under kong Sigfred var en respektabel modstander for Karl den Store, og så længe kong Sigfred levede gik Karl ikke ind i Nordalbingien, som var Widukins hjemstavn.

Omnämnd 777-798

Sigurd Ring skall ha varit kung av Sverige och Danmark, enligt somliga med säte på kungsgården Gum på Kinnekulle i Västergötland. Han var en son till Randver av Svitjod och satt som lydkonung i Sverige under sin halvfarbror Harald Hildetand.

Sigurd stred mot kung Harald och besegrade honom i slaget vid Bråvalla. Han var gift med Alfhild, dotter till en kung Alf.

Som gammal skall han blivit förälskad i Alvsol av Vendsyssel, varför han stred mot hennes bröder och besegrade dem, men sårades svårt i striden. Alvsol hade emellertid redan dödats med gift före striden för att inte hamna i segrarens händer. Han skall ha omnämnts som kung över Danmark eller en del därav i frankiska annaler åren 777, 782 och 798.

Sigurd Ring lät sig tillsammans med den döda Alvsol och hennes döda bröder bäras ombord på sitt skepp. Sedan han låtit antända skeppet styrde han ut detta till havs och försvann i lågor och vågor. Sigurd Rings efterträdare på tronen blev hans son Ragnar Lodbrok.

Sigurd Ring (Old Norse: Sigurðr hringr) or Ring (Old Norse: Hringr) (ca 750) was a Swedish and Danish king mentioned in many old Scandinavian legends. According to Bósa saga ok Herrauds, there was once a saga on Sigurd Ring, but this saga is now lost. In the old sources, he is notable for winning the Battle of the Brávellir against Harald Wartooth and for being the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

Hervarar saga

The Hervarar saga tells that when Valdar died, his son Randver became the king of Denmark, while Harald Wartooth became the king of Götaland or Gotland. Then Harald conquered all of his father Ivar Vidfamne's territory. After Randver's death, his son Sigurd Ring became the king of Denmark, presumably as the subking of Harald. Sigurd Ring and Harald fought the Battle of the Brávellir on the plains of Östergötland where Harald and many of his men died. Sigurd ruled Denmark until his death and was succeeded by his son Ragnar Lodbrok. Harald Wartooth's son Eysteinn Beli ruled Sweden until he was killed by the sons of Ragnar Lodbrok.

Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum

In Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum, Sigurd is the paternal nephew of the Danish king Harald Wartooth, and presumably (the part of Sögubrot where this would have been explicited is not preserved) the son of Randver, who in his turn is the son of Harald's mother Auð and her husband king Radbart of Gardariki. Harald Wartooth was beginning to feel old he made Ring the king of Sweden and Västergötland. Ring beat his uncle at the colossal Battle of Bråvalla, and became the ruler of Denmark as well. He made a shieldmaiden the ruler of Denmark (cf. Chronicon Lethrense, below).

Sigurd married Alfhild, the daughter of king Alf of Alfheim. Together with Alfhild, he had the son Ragnar Lodbrok.

As Sigurd grew old, distant parts of his realm began to secede, and it is told how he lost England due to old age. One day, he was in Västergötland and was visited by his brothers-in-law, the sons of Gandalf. They asked him to join them in attacking king Eysteinn of Westfold in Norway. In Westfold, there were great blóts held at Skiringssal. Unfortunately, Sögubrot (meaning the "fragment") ends there. However, the Skjöldunga saga is believed to be the original story on which Sögubrot is based and it continues the story (see below).

Skjöldunga saga

The Skjöldunga saga tells that Sigurd Ring was married to Alfhild, the daughter of king Alf of Alfheim, and their son was Ragnar Lodbrok. Unfortunately, Alfhild died. When Sigurd Ring was an old man, he came to Skiringssal to take part in the great blóts. There he spotted a very beautiful girl named Alfsol, and she was the daughter of King Alf of Vendel (Vendsyssel). The girl's two brothers refused to allow Sigurd to marry her. Sigurd fought with the brothers and killed them, but their sister had been given poison by her brothers so that Sigurd could never have her. When her corpse was carried to Sigurd, he went aboard a large ship where he placed Alvsol and her brothers. Then, he steered the ship with full sails out on the sea, as the ship burnt.

Ragnar Lodbrok succeeded his father, but put a subking on the throne of Sweden, king Eysteinn Beli, who later was killed by Ragnar's sons.

Gesta Danorum

According to Gesta Danorum (book 7), by Saxo Grammaticus, Ring was the son of the Swedish king Ingjald (Ingild) and the maternal nephew of the Danish king Harald Wartooth. His father Ingjald had raped the sister of Harald, but the latter did not mind in order preserve the friendship with Injald. Ring fought with Harald Wartooth in the Battle of the Brávellir and became the king of Denmark as well. Saxo then describes the different subkings and their adventures. In book 9, he returns to Sigurd Ring as Siward, surnamed Ring, the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

Other sources

According to Hversu Noregr byggdist, Sigurd was the son of Randver, the brother of Harald Wartooth. Randver and Harald were the sons of Rörek.

In the part of the Heimskringla called the Saga of Harald Fairhair, Harald Fairhair learns that the Swedish king Erik Eymundsson had enlarged Sweden westwards, until it reached the same extent as it had during king Sigurd Ring and his son Ragnar Lodbrok. This included Romerike, Westfold all the way to Grenmar, and Vingulmark.

In Ragnar Lodbrok's saga, it is mentioned that Sigurd Ring and Harald Wartooth fought in the Battle of the Brávellir and that Harald fell. After the battle Sigurd Ring was the king of Denmark, and he was the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

Ragnarssona þáttr only states that Ring was the king of Sweden and Denmark, and the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

In Bósa saga ok Herrauds, it is only said that Sigurd Ring, the father of Ragnar Lodbrok fought with Harald Wartooth at the Battle of the Brávellir where Harald died. It adds that there was a saga on Sigurd Ring (which today no longer exists).

According to the Chronicon Lethrense, Harald Wartooth had made all the countries down to the Mediterranean pay tribute. However, when he went to Sweden to demand tribute, the Swedish king Ring met him at the Battle of the Brávellir, and Harald lost and died. Ring made a shieldmaiden the ruler of Denmark (cf. Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum, above).

Gríms saga loðinkinna and the younger version of Orvar-Odd's saga only mention Sigurd Ring in a few lines relating to the Battle of the Brávellir with Harald Wartooth.

In Norna-Gests þáttr, it is said that Sigurd Ring was very old when Sigurd's sons-in-law, the sons of Gandalf, asked him to help them fight against Sigurd Fafnisbani and the Gjukungs. Sigurd Ring could not help them in person, as he was busy fighting against ravaging Curonians and Kœnir.

Stammerne i Sverige må være kommet ind via Store Svitjod, (Rusland). Stammens høvding i Norden kaldte sig vel allerede dengang konge. Det har vist sig, at der var rigtig mange småkonger, fylkekonger, herredskonger, landskabskonger, underkonger og småkonger i mindre landområder (næppe større end de kommuner vi kender i dag). Dertil kom også søkonger. Snorre Sturlasons Ynglingesaga siger, at Sveernes første hersker var Odin i skovriget: Svitjod, (svedjebrug) hvor folket måtte betale en penning pr. næse til Odin. Denne Ynglingeslægt skulle stamme i lige linie fra: Frej/Frøj, (frugtbarhedsgud) ham med den store fallos. (Det er også set på billeder i Pompeji i 63 f. Kr.) Yndlingen Ingjald Ildråde kom i krig med Kong Ivar Vidfavne af Danmark, og da Ingjald besøgte kongsgården i Räning i Uppland, kom Ivar og angreb dem med stor overmagt, hvorpå Ingjald satte ild til kongsgården og gennemførte et selvmord ved at indebrænde. Sandsynligvis var det frygten for at blive træl, der medførte denne handling. Vikingerne og for den sags skyld Islams folk, er kendt for at gå i døden i kamp. For vikingerne var det en skændsel at dø i sengen, selvom vi i dag ved, at de fleste jo netop dør i sengen. Disse småkonger slog sig sammen i et nyt stammefællesskab, og til sidst opstod Sveernes og Göternes riger, hvorom det sige at landområderne strakte sig over ti dage på hesteryg. På baggrund af fund, har man valgt at sige, at Sveerne første oprindelse må være sket på Helgö, hvor de grundlagde deres »byDu raser mod Endennu skal du dø !Nejikke før du har tabt Haralds Banner!« I det samme afhuggede han hendes Hånd og gik videre. - Den gamle blinde Kong Harald kørte frem i Striden med et Sværd i hver Hånd og hug løs på Fjenden. Han faldt i Slaget, man vil sige for Odins egen Hånd, men 15 Konger faldt med ham og 30.000 fribårne Mænd. Da Sigurd Ring hørte, at hans Modstander var falden7 gav han øjeblikkelig Tegn til at standse Slaget. Dagen efter lod han Haralds Lig opsøge og sætte på Bål tillige med hans Hest. Kong Sigurd gik da frem foran Bålet og bad Harald ride rask til Valhal og tinge Husly til Kæmperne, hvorefter alle Høvdinger gik rundt om Bålet og kastede Våben og Guld derpå. Harald Hildetand faldt sammen med sin søn: Rørek i kamp mod Sigurd Ring år 770/772 .

Kong Sigfred (Sigurd 1. Ring) nævnes i år 777, 782, 798 i det frankiske riges årbøger. Kongemagten er åbenbart ret stabil, siden Sigfred sidder på tronen i mindst 21 år. Sigurd Rings far var Randveig Radbardsson (f.ca. 680-d. 700), der var underkonge i Sverrig. Randveig Radbardsson´s mor var Audr Iversdatter og faderen var Radbert d. 1. fra "Gardariget". Sigurd Ring blev antaget som underkonge i nord-Sverige og i Vestfold af sin faders halvbror: Harald Hildetand, som han slog i 770/772 i Bråvalllaslaget. Derefter blev Sigurd Ring enekonge. Han sendte sin yngste bror: Halfdan som gesandt til Karl den Stores rigsdag i Lippspringe i 782 og modtog gesandter fra Karl den Store i 798. Sigurd Ring var gift med Alfhild Gangalvsdatter, og de fik: Regnar Lodbrog Sigurdsen (f. 735-d.795 i England) og Geva (f.750-d. ?). Fra 772 havde Frankerne og Karl den Store besejret Sakserne og ødelagt deres helligdom "Irminsul" i Westfalen tæt ved Sakserborgen: Eresburg. I 782 giver den danske kong Sigfred asyl til sakserhøvdingen: Widukind (Wedukin). Sakserne og Abroditterne (Venderne) var gået i forbund mod Frankernes ekspansion. Karl den Store skal på én enkelt dag i 782 i byen Verden i Nordtyskland havde ladet 4.500 såkaldte hedenske Saksere halshugge, og Karl den Store indførte strenge straffe for ukristne ritualer, herunder dødsstraf for bestemte forseelser, som han lod nedfælde i Capitulatio de partibus Saxoniae, udstedt i 782 eller i 785. I 783 vandt Frankerne afgørende sejre, og nårsomhelst Sakserne senere forsøgte modstand, ramtes de af frygtelig straf; oprørerne tvangskristnedes og, hvad værre var, de flyttedes i massevis bort fra deres hjemland og ejendomme, der overgives til frankiske nybyggere. I 785 oplevede den Angelsaksiske Willehad fra Northumbrien, hvordan Karl den Store tvangskristede Sakserne. Med våbenmagt opløste Frankerne det Saksiske folk og stamme. Derefter slog Willehad sig ned i Bremen, hvorfra han virkede som missionær, og hvor han døde og blev gravlagt i 789 i Bremens første domkirke. Willehad havde selv ladet den opføre, og dermed skabt grundlaget for det senere Hamburg-Bremen bispesæde. Det nordtyske bispesæde Bremens kirkehistorie og Nordeuropas "missionshistorie" tager derfor sin begyndelse med den angelsaksiske biskop Willehad (ca.740-789). Hamburg (Hammaburg) var ellers engang Saxonernes berømte by, og Saxonernes land udgjorde en betydelig del af Germanien, og var dobbelt så bredt som Frankernes land, men lige så langt. Hamborg blev grundlagt af Frankerne i 811, på en boplads, hvorfra altså Frankerne havde fordrevet Sakserne. Efter således tre faser med Sakserkrige i perioden: 772-804 lykkedes det Karl den Store ( 747-814 ) at indlemme og undertrykke Sakserne ind under Frankerriget. Men i 785 var de "nordtyske" Friseres omvendelse til kristendommen så vidt fuldbyrdet, at et bispedømme kunne oprettes i Bremen. Omkring år 790 viste kirken igen interesse for Danernes liv, men mente åbenbart ikke, at det kunne nytte noget. Op imod år 800 skete der store omvæltninger i Nordtyskland, og Karl den Store, konge over det vældige kristne Frankerrige og titulært kejser af Rom, underkastede sig nu størstedelen af det nuværende Tyskland, herunder Sachsen, hvor Sachserne gennem voldsomme myrderier og tvangsforflytninger i 783-805 blev tvangsdøbt til kristendommen. Juledag år 800 kronede pave Leo i Rom Karl den Store til romersk kejser. Ved århundredskiftet var Elben blevet Frankerrigets grænse; men nu syntes det, som om Karl ville gå videre. Med det store kejserhof i Aachen, havde Danmark fået nogle farlige naboer. Frankerne krævede, at Elben blev deres grænse og krævede tvangsforflytning af Sakserne. Landområderne syd for Dannevirke og Ejderen var folketomme, og østpå var der skovområder, som kaldtes Jernved (Isarnho på tysk). Det vældige land var i efterårsmånederne en kæmpemæssig vandflade indtil Ejder-slusen i vor tid gjorde en ende på oversvømmelserne. Holsten var endnu ikke opfundet, og området var omgivet af Vagrien, Stormarn og Ditmarsken. Hele området kaldtes i middelalderen Nord-Albingien og var beboet af Saksere, men efter Karl den Stores erobring omkring år 800 og hans hårdhændede kristendomsforkyndelse blev store dele af landet lagt åbent for indvandring af de Vendiske Wagrere og Obotritter. I forbund med de slaviske Obotriter i østHolsten kunne Karl den Store undertvinge og omflytte de Saksiske stammer nord for Elben: Sturmerne og Holsterne, dvs. Holtseterne, de, der havde dyrket jord op og boede i skoven, holtet. I 804 var Karl selv i denne anledning helt oppe ved Elben; da fik han efterretning om, at kong Godfred, en søn af kong Sigfred, havde samlet en hær ved Sliestorp, på Sliens nordlige bred, lige overfor Hedeby. Kong Godfreds fjendtlighed er let forståelig. Karl ville slutte forbund med de slaviske Obotritter, og lade dem få den saksisk befolkede del af Holsten, og Karl ville tage magten over byen Reric, og dermed Frisernes handelsvej over Hedeby. Godfred forstod hvad denne frisiske handelsvejs beherskelse betød for hans kongemagt, og han tilbød Karl forhandlinger.

[rediger] Kildene

Sigurd Ring er nevnt i blant annet Gesta Danorum, Hervarar saga og Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum, I henhold til Bosa og Herrauds saga (Bósa saga ok Herrauds) skal det ha vært en egen saga om Sigurd Ring, men denne saga er gått tapt. I de eldste kildene blir han æret for å ha vunnet slaget om Bråvalla mot sin onkel Harald Hildetann og for å være far til den kjente vikinghøvdingen Ragnar Lodbrok.

[rediger] Hervarar saga

Hervarar saga Forteller at da Valdar døde ble hans sønn Randver konge av Danmark mens broren Harald Hildetann ble konge av Gøtaland. Deretter erobret Harald alt land som tidligere hadde tilhørt hans far Ivar Vidfamne. Etter Randvers død ble hans sønn Sigurd Ring konge av Danmark, antagelig underkonge av Harald. Da Harald ble gammel møttes han og nevøen Sigurd Ring til et stort slag på vollene av Østergøtland hvor Harald Hildetann og mange av hans menn døde i slaget ved Bråvalla. Sigurd styrte deretter Danmark til han døde og ble etterfulgt av sin sønn Ragnar Lodbrok mens Harald Hildetanns sønn Eystein Bele, også kalt for «Ilråde», styrte Sverige inntil han ble drept av sønnene til Ragnar Lodbrok.

[rediger] Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum

I det fragmentariske islandske skriftet Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum er Sigurd Ring nevø på farssiden av den danske kongen Harald Hildetann og er antagelig (denne delen av Sögubrot er ikke bevart) sønn av Randver som var sønn av Haralds mor Aud Djupauga og hennes ektemann kong Radbart av Gardariket. Harald Hildetann begynte å føle seg gammel da han gjorde Sigurd Ring konge av Sverige og Vestergøtland. Sigurd Ring beseiret sin onkel i det store slaget ved Bråvalla, og ble da konge av Danmark også. Han gjorde ei skjoldmøy, valkyrjen Hed til dronning av Danmark, og i følge Lejrekrøniken grunnla hun handelsbyen Hedeby.

Sigurd Ring giftet seg med Alvhild, datter av kong Alv av Alvheim, og sammen med Alvhild fikk han sønnen Ragnar Lodbrok. [1]

Etter som Sigurd ble eldre begynte mer fjerntliggende deler av hans rike å gjøre seg uavhengig, og det blir fortalt hvordan han tapte England grunnet alderdom. En dag da han var i Vestergøtland og besøkte sine svogere, sønnene til Gandalv, og de ba ham om å bli med og angripe kong Øystein i Vestfold i Norge. I Vestfold var det store blotgilder i Skiringsal, men ulykkeligvis ender Sögubrot her og den øvrige fortellingen har gått tapt. Man antar at Skjöldunga saga er den opprinnelige saga som Sögubrot har basert sin fortelling på, og som fortsetter fortellingen (se nedenfor).

[rediger] Skjöldunga saga

Skjöldunga saga forteller at Sigurd Ring var gift med Alvhild, datter av kong Alv av Alvheim, og at deres sønn var Ragnar Lodbrok. Når Sigurd Ring er en gammel mann er Alvhild død, og han kommer til Skiringssal for å delta i de store blotgilder. Der oppdager han en svært vakker kvinne ved navn Alvsol. Hun var datter av kong Alv av Vendel [2].

Sigurd Ring ville gifte seg med Alvsol, men hennes to brødre ville ikke tillate det. Sigurd slåss da med brødrene og drepte dem, men han tapte likevel Alvsol. Hun hadde tatt gift som brødrene hadde gitt henne slik at hun ikke skulle falle i Sigurd Rings vold. Da hennes lik ble vist fram til ham, tok han henne om bord i stort skip, la hennes brødre ved siden av henne, og ga dem en skipsbegravelse ved å la skipet seile ut mens det brant. Sigurd Ring skal selv ha blitt dødelig såret i kampen med brødrene, og det skal ha blitt opprettet en gravrøys på stranden Ringshaug i Tønsberg.[3]

Ragnar Lodbrok etterfulgte sin far, men plasserte en underkonge på den svenske tronen, kong Eystein Bele, som senere ble drept av Ragnars sønner.

[rediger] Gesta Danorum

I henhold til Gesta Danorum (bok 7) av Saxo Grammaticus nevnes ham som «Ringo» og som sønn av den svenske kongen Ingjald (Ingild) og nevø på farsiden med den danske kongen Harald Hildetann. Hans far Ingjald skal ha voldtatt en søster av Harald, noe denne overså for å bevare vennskapet. Sigurd Ring bekjempet Harald Blåtann i slaget ved Bråvalla og ble da også konge av Danmark.

Saxo beskriver de ulike underkongene og deres hendelser. I bok 9 kommer han tilbake til Sigurd Ring og kaller ham da «Siwardus Ring», far av Ragnar Lodbrok.

Sigurd Ring blev nu Eneherre over det store ivarske Monarki,

og boede ligesom hans Formænd i Leire paa Sjelland, førende

en Regjering, der stedse var opfyldt med Krig. Han gjorde et

Tog til Northumberland, og tog til Medregent Harald Hildetands

Søn Beli. I sin Alderdom anfaldt han den danske Underkonge Alf,

der havde negtet ham sin vakre Datter, kaldet Alfsol. Alf og

hans Sønner faldt i Slaget, efterat have dræbt Søsteren, forat

hun ikke skulde falde i Seirherrens Vold. Sigurd, som selv var

saaret, lod samle alle Ligene paa et Skib, satte Alfsols i Bag-

stavnen og sig selv derhos, lod Skibet antænde og under fulde

Seil og drivende Vind fare tilhavs.

Nordisk sagokung. Han skall ha besegrat den danske kungen

Harald Hildetand i Bråvalla slag. Osäkert om han har existerat.

Sigurd, Sigvard eller Sigfred, søn af Randver, blev udnævnt til underkonge i Nordsverige og Vestfold (område i Norge, eller Norge) af sin faders halvbroder, Harald Hildetand, som han slog i 770-72 i det der siden er kendt som Bråvallaslaget. Derefter blev han dansk enekonge. Han modtog svogeren, hertug Widukind af Engern, som flygtning i 777 og 782. Han sendte sin yngste broder, Halfdan, som gesandt til Karl den Stores rigsdag i Lippspringe i 782 og modtog gesandter fra Karl den Store i 798. Kort tid efter døde han

http://www.rungstedskole.dk/Historie/Kongbiog.html .

Han ar gift med Alfhild, dotter till en kung Alf. När han blev gammal blev han dock förälskad i Alvsol av Vendsyssel. Men han fick inte gifta sig med henne. Sigurd Ring höll slag med hennes bröder och besegrade dem. Alvsol hade emellertid redan dödats med gift före striden för att inte hamna i segrarens händer. Sigurd Ring begick då självmord genom att kasta sig på sitt svärd ombord på ett brinnande skepp lastat med alla de stupade. Död ca 770. Troligen höglagd på Vallsgärde utanför Uppsala.

Sigurd Ring begick då självmord genom att kasta sig på sitt svärd ombord på ett brinnande skepp lastat med alla de stupade. Död ca 770. Troligen höglagd på Vallsgärde utanför Uppsala.


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

The Skjöldunga saga tells that Sigurd Ring was married to Alfhild, the daughter of king Alf of Alfheim, and their son was Ragnar Lodbrok. Unfortunately, Alfhild died. When Sigurd Ring was an old man, he came to Skiringssal to take part in the great blóts. There he spotted a very beautiful girl named Alfsol, and she was the daughter of King Alf of Vendel (Vendsyssel). The girl's two brothers refused to allow Sigurd to marry her. Sigurd fought with the brothers and killed them, but their sister had been given poison by her brothers so that Sigurd could never have her. When her corpse was carried to Sigurd, he went aboard a large ship where he placed Alvsol and her brothers. Then, he steered the ship with full sails out on the sea, as the ship burnt.

Ragnar Lodbrok succeeded his father, but put a subking on the throne of Sweden, king Eysteinn Beli, who later was killed by Ragnar's sons.

[edit] Gesta Danorum

According to Gesta Danorum (book 7), by Saxo Grammaticus, Ring was the son of the Swedish king Ingjald (Ingild) and the maternal nephew of the Danish king Harald Wartooth. His father Ingjald had raped the sister of Harald, but the latter did not mind in order preserve the friendship with Ingjald. Ring fought with Harald Wartooth in the Battle of the Brávellir and became the king of Denmark as well. Saxo then describes the different subkings and their adventures. In book 9, he returns to Sigurd Ring as Siward, surnamed Ring, the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

[edit] Other sources

According to Hversu Noregr byggdist, Sigurd was the son of Randver, the brother of Harald Wartooth. Randver and Harald were the sons of Hrærekr slöngvanbaugi.

In the part of the Heimskringla called the Saga of Harald Fairhair, Harald Fairhair learns that the Swedish king Erik Eymundsson had enlarged Sweden westwards, until it reached the same extent as it had during king Sigurd Ring and his son Ragnar Lodbrok. This included Romerike, Westfold all the way to Grenmar, and Vingulmark.

In Ragnar Lodbrok's saga, it is mentioned that Sigurd Ring and Harald Wartooth fought in the Battle of the Brávellir and that Harald fell. After the battle Sigurd Ring was the king of Denmark, and he was the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

Ragnarssona þáttr only states that Ring was the king of Sweden and Denmark, and the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

In Bósa saga ok Herrauds, it is only said that Sigurd Ring, the father of Ragnar Lodbrok fought with Harald Wartooth at the Battle of the Brávellir where Harald died. It adds that there was a saga on Sigurd Ring (which today no longer exists).

According to the Chronicon Lethrense, Harald Wartooth had made all the countries down to the Mediterranean pay tribute. However, when he went to Sweden to demand tribute, the Swedish king Ring met him at the Battle of the Brávellir, and Harald lost and died. Ring made a shieldmaiden the ruler of Denmark (cf. Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum, above).

Gríms saga loðinkinna and the younger version of Orvar-Odd's saga only mention Sigurd Ring in a few lines relating to the Battle of the Brávellir with Harald Wartooth.

In Norna-Gests þáttr, it is said that Sigurd Ring was very old when Sigurd's sons-in-law, the sons of Gandalf, asked him to help them fight against Sigurd Fafnisbani and the Gjukungs. Sigurd Ring could not help them in person, as he was busy fighting against ravaging Curonians and Kœnir.

   Challenged his uncle Harald Hilditonn or Wartooth. Early sources are almost unanimous in describing Sigurd Hring as Harald's nephew; but thereafter a tangle of witness makes him a sub-king in Denmark, in Sweden, in East Gautland, or in Sweden and East Gautland together. The first of these appears the least likely. If Hring existed at all, he existed east of the Oresund. The rivalry of Harald and Hring led to the battle of Bravellir, a clash as famous in northern story as Hrolf's last stand at Lejre, and equally embellished with fictions. Harald came to earn the dislike of his subjects for old age and cruelty, and they planned to get rid of him by some ignoble stratagem. He preferred to die in battle and sent a challenge to King Hring. Each monarch collected a great host, with champions drawn from every northern nation. The armies came formally to the place of slaughter, probably near Braviken, north of modern Norrkoping, on the NE boundary of East Gautland. Here they were drawn up in battle order and harangued by Harald and Hring. Then the trumpets sounded and the carnage
   began. When it was over, only Harald was dead, tumbled from his chariot and clubbed to death by Odinn, who thus gathered him to his peers in Valhalla. Hring treated his uncle's corpse with Honour; according to Icelandic sources he was conveyed in his chariot into a cairn filled with the donated treasures of the victors; according to Saxo he was burned on a sumptuous pyre.

   A claimant to the throne of Denmark in the Civil War of 812. The name "Sigurd Ring" is really fictional, though famous because of the sagas. Sigifrid was nepos of Godefrid, and Anulo was nepos of the former king Harald. Both were killed in the resulting struggle, but Anulo's party won, and his brothers became kings. It is unclear whether the two factions in this civil war (i.e., the relatives of Harald vs. the relatives of Godefrid) were two different families or two different branches of the same family. This battle in 812 was the ultimate source of the famous (but fictional) "Battle of Bravalla" which is a part of the pseudohistory given by the sagas. The two claimants, Sigifired
   (i.e., Sigurd) and Anulo (confused with the Latin word for ring, annulus, and translated as "Ring"), were combined into the mythical "Sigurd Ring", who was made the victor (and survivor) of the battle, and Harald was transformed into the loser.
   Anulo was a son of Halfdan/Halptani and a brother of Harald, Reginfrid, and Hemming. [Anders Berg - anderzb@algonet.se]

-------------------- King at Lethra. Name also spelt 'Sigured Ranvarsson'. -------------------- Sigurðr hringr, Sigurd Ring (ca 750) was a Swedish king mentioned in sources such as the Heimskringla, Gesta Danorum, Hervarar Saga and Sögubrot af Nokkrum. He is of disputed historicity.

He was the nephew of the Danish king Harald Hildetand who put him on the Swedish throne. He beat his uncle at the colossal Battle of Bråvalla, and became the ruler of Denmark as well.

He ruled until he became very old. Then he fell in love with a beautiful girl, Alvsol of Vendsyssel, but was not allowed to marry her. Sigurd attacked Alvsol's brothers, but was mortally wounded during the battle. Alvsol had already died of poison so as not to be taken by Sigurd.

Sigurd had the girl and her brothers put on a ship which he steered out to the sea as the ship burnt.

He was the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

From Heimskringla, Harald Harfager's Saga:

"14. HARALD AND THE SWEDISH KING EIRIK.

King Harald came with his fleet eastward to Viken and landed at Tunsberg, which was then a trading town. He had then been four years in Throndhjem, and in all that time had not been in Viken. Here he heard the news that Eirik Eymundson, king of Sweden, had laid under him Vermaland, and was taking scat or land-tax from all the forest settlers; and also that he called the whole country north to Svinasund, and west along the sea, West Gautland; and which altogether he reckoned to his kingdom, and took land-tax from it. Over this country he had set an earl, by name Hrane Gauzke, who had the earldom between Svinasund and the Gaut river, and was a mighty earl. And it was told to King Harald that the Swedish king said he would not rest until he had as great a kingdom in Viken as Sigurd Hring, or his son Ragnar Lodbrok, had possessed; and that was Raumarike and Vestfold, all the way to the isle Grenmar, and also Vingulmark, and all that lay south of it. In all these districts many chiefs, and many other people, had given obedience to the Swedish king. King Harald was very angry at this, and summoned the bondes to a Thing at Fold, where he laid an accusation against them for treason towards him. Some bondes defended themselves from the accusation, some paid fines, some were punished. He went thus through the whole district during the summer, and in harvest he did the same in Raumarike, and laid the two districts under his power. Towards winter he heard that Eirik king of Sweden was, with his court, going about in Vermaland in guest-quarters." 3

Han var nevø av den danske kongen Harald Hildetand som satte ham på den svenske tronen. Han slo sin onkel i den kolossale slaget ved Bråvalla, og ble konge av Danmark også.

Han styrte til han ble svært gammel. Da han ble forelsket i en vakker jente, var Alvsol av Vendsyssel, men ikke lov til å gifte seg med henne. Sigurd angrep Alvsol brødre, men ble dødelig såret under slaget. Alvsol hadde allerede dødd av giftige for ikke å bli tatt av Sigurd.

Sigurd hadde jenta og hennes brødre satt på et skip som han styrte ut i havet som skipet brent.

Han var far til Ragnar Lodbrok.

Fra Heimskringla, Harald Hårfagre-saga:

"14. HARALD OG den svenske kongen Eirik. Kong Harald kom med sin flåte østover til Viken og gikk i land ved Tunsberg, som da var en handelsby. Da hadde han vært fire år i Trondheimen, og i all den tid ikke hadde vært i Viken. Her hørte han nyheten om at Eirik Emundsson, konge av Sverige, hadde lagt under ham Vermaland, og tok scat-eller land-skatt fra alle skogens bosetterne, og også at han kalte hele landet nord til Svinasund, og vestover langs sjøen , Vest-Gautland, og som til sammen han regnet til hans rike, og tok land-skatt fra det. Over dette landet han hadde satt en jarl som het Hrane Gauzke, som hadde jarldømmet mellom Svinasund og Gaut elva, og var en mektig jarl. Og det ble fortalt til kong Harald om at den svenske kongen sa han ikke ville hvile før han hadde en like stor rike i Viken som Sigurd Ring, eller hans sønn Ragnar Lodbrok, hadde hatt, og det var Romerike og Vestfold, hele veien til øy Grenmar, og også Vingulmark, og alt som lå sør for den. I alle disse bydelene mange høvdinger, og mange andre mennesker, hadde gitt lydighet til den svenske kongen. Kong Harald var veldig sint på dette, og kalte bøndene til ting på Fold, der han la en anklage mot dem for forræderi mot ham. Noen bønder forsvarte seg fra anklagen, noen betalt bøter, ble noen straffet. Han gikk dermed gjennom hele distriktet i løpet av sommeren, og i høst gjorde han det samme i Romerike, og la de to distriktene under hans makt. Mot vinteren hørte han at Eirik konge av Sverige var, med hans hoff, som går omkring i Vermaland i gjestenes-kvartaler. " Kilde: Howards.net -------------------- Biografi

There were two kings Sigifridus and Anulo [whose name became mistranslated as "Ring" due to the similarity with Latin "anulus" ("ring")] who fought each other in 812 for the Danish throne, both of whom were killed in the struggle. Later pseudohistorians combined these failed claimants into one person, the mythical Sigurd Ring, and turned him into a mythical conqueror of Denmark and Sweden.

(Redirected from Sigurd Ring)

Sigurd Hring (Old Norse: Sigurðr hringr (Hringr meaning 'Ring')) (ca 750) was a Swedish and Danish king mentioned in many old Scandinavian legends. According to Bósa saga ok Herrauds, there was once a saga on Sigurd Hring, but this saga is now lost. In the old sources, he is notable for winning the Battle of the Brávellir against Harald Wartooth and for being the father of Ragnar Lodbrok. [edit] Hervarar saga The Hervarar saga tells that when Valdar died, his son Randver became the king of Denmark, while Harald Wartooth became the king of Götaland or Gotland. Then Harald conquered all of his father Ivar Vidfamne's territory. After Randver's death, his son Sigurd Hring became the king of Denmark, presumably as the subking of Harald. Sigurd Ring and Harald fought the Battle of the Brávellir on the plains of Östergötland where Harald and many of his men died. Sigurd ruled Denmark until his death and was succeeded by his son Ragnar Lodbrok. Harald Wartooth's son Eysteinn Beli ruled Sweden until he was killed by the sons of Ragnar Lodbrok. [edit] Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum In Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum, Sigurd is the paternal nephew of the Danish king Harald Wartooth, and presumably (the part of Sögubrot where this would have been narrated expressly has not been preserved) the son of Randver, who in his turn is the son of Harald's mother Auðr the Deep-Minded and her husband king Raðbarðr of Gardariki. Harald Wartooth was beginning to feel old he made Ring the king of Sweden and Västergötland. Ring beat his uncle at the colossal Battle of Bråvalla, and became the ruler of Denmark as well. He made a shieldmaiden the ruler of Denmark (cf. Chronicon Lethrense, below). Sigurd married Alfhild, the daughter of king Alf of Alfheim. Together with Alfhild, he had the son Ragnar Lodbrok. As Sigurd grew old, distant parts of his realm began to secede, and it is told how he lost England due to old age. One day, he was in Västergötland and was visited by his brothers-in-law, the sons of Gandalf. They asked him to join them in attacking king Eysteinn of Vestfold in Norway. In Vestfold, there were great blóts held at Skiringssal. Unfortunately, Sögubrot (meaning the "fragment") ends there. However, the Skjöldunga saga is believed to be the original story on which Sögubrot is based and it continues the story (see below). [edit] Skjöldunga saga The Skjöldunga saga tells that Sigurd Ring was married to Alfhild, the daughter of king Alf of Alfheim, and their son was Ragnar Lodbrok. Unfortunately, Alfhild died. When Sigurd Ring was an old man, he came to Skiringssal to take part in the great blóts. There he spotted a very beautiful girl named Alfsol, and she was the daughter of King Alf of Vendel (Vendsyssel). The girl's two brothers refused to allow Sigurd to marry her. Sigurd fought with the brothers and killed them, but their sister had been given poison by her brothers so that Sigurd could never have her. When her corpse was carried to Sigurd, he went aboard a large ship where he placed Alvsol and her brothers. Then, he steered the ship with full sails out on the sea, as the ship burnt. Ragnar Lodbrok succeeded his father, but put a subking on the throne of Sweden, king Eysteinn Beli, who later was killed by Ragnar's sons. [edit] Gesta Danorum According to Gesta Danorum (book 7), by Saxo Grammaticus, Hring was the son of the Swedish king Ingjald (Ingild) and the maternal nephew of the Danish king Harald Wartooth. His father Ingjald had raped the sister of Harald, but the latter did not mind in order preserve the friendship with Ingjald. Ring fought with Harald Wartooth in the Battle of the Brávellir and became the king of Denmark as well. Saxo then describes the different subkings and their adventures. In book 9, he returns to Sigurd Hring as Siward, surnamed Hring, the father of Ragnar Lodbrok. [edit] Other sources According to Hversu Noregr byggdist, Sigurd was the son of Randver, the brother of Harald Wartooth. Randver and Harald were the sons of Hrærekr slöngvanbaugi. In the part of the Heimskringla called the Saga of Harald Fairhair, Harald Fairhair learns that the Swedish king Erik Eymundsson had enlarged Sweden westwards, until it reached the same extent as it had during king Sigurd Ring and his son Ragnar Lodbrok. This included Romerike, Westfold all the way to Grenmar, and Vingulmark. In Ragnar Lodbrok's saga, it is mentioned that Sigurd Ring and Harald Wartooth fought in the Battle of the Brávellir and that Harald fell. After the battle Sigurd Ring was the king of Denmark, and he was the father of Ragnar Lodbrok. Ragnarssona þáttr only states that Ring was the king of Sweden and Denmark, and the father of Ragnar Lodbrok. In Bósa saga ok Herrauds, it is only said that Sigurd Ring, the father of Ragnar Lodbrok fought with Harald Wartooth at the Battle of the Brávellir where Harald died. It adds that there was a saga on Sigurd Ring (which today no longer exists). According to the Chronicon Lethrense, Harald Wartooth had made all the countries down to the Mediterranean pay tribute. However, when he went to Sweden to demand tribute, the Swedish king Ring met him at the Battle of the Brávellir, and Harald lost and died. Hring made a shieldmaiden the ruler of Denmark (cf. Sögubrot af nokkrum fornkonungum, above). Gríms saga loðinkinna and the younger version of Orvar-Odd's saga only mention Sigurd Hring in a few lines relating to the Battle of the Brávellir with Harald Wartooth. In Norna-Gests þáttr, it is said that Sigurd Hring was very old when Sigurd's sons-in-law, the sons of Gandalf, asked him to help them fight against Sigurd Fafnisbani and the Gjukungs. Sigurd Ring could not help them in person, as he was busy fighting against ravaging Curonians and K?nir.
