About Snaer Jokulsson, King of Kvenland

NOTE: His father is named Frosti and Jøkull in 2 different accounts that are otherwise identical.

Snow the Old / Snø den Gamle / Snaer

Snø den gamle norr. Snjór in gamli eller Snær in gamli, ifølge norrøn mytologi konge i Finland. Far til Torre, Fonn, Driva og Mjoll.<citation needed>

Legendary Scandinavian king, described in the Orkney Saga, the Flateyarbok and the Ynglingesaga.

The accounts differ on the name of his father; the Orkney saga gives his father as Frosti son of Kari; the Flateyarbok gives his father as Jølkull, son of Kari.

Note: Ynglingesoga gives a story of another princess who was called "daughter of Snow the old"; this father is listed on Geni as another person, since the most likely chronology gives several hundred years of difference.

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

Snær (Old Norse) Snærr, East Norse Sniō, Latin Nix, Nivis) 'snow', in Norse mythology seemingly a personification of snow, appearing in extant text as an euhemerized legendary Scandinavian king.

Snow's son in Orkneyinga saga and Hversu is Thorri 'frozen-snow'. The Hversu also gives Snow three daughters: Fön (Fǫnn 'Snowdrift'), Drífa 'snowfall', and Mjöl (Mjǫll, 'powdered snow'). Sturlaugs saga (section 22) brings in King Snow of Finmark and his daughter Mjöl who flies quickly through the air.

The Ynglinga saga relates how Vanlandi the ruler of Sweden visited Snow in Finland and married his daughter Drífa, but left in the spring and did not return. Drífa bore Vanlandi a son called Vísbur.

The Hversu also mentions in passing, when speaking of Snær's distant descendant Halfdan the Old, that Snær's life lasted three hundred years.

Snow's son Thorri reigned after Snow as king of Gotland, Kvenland, and Finland. Thorri had two sons named Nór and Gór and a daughter named Gói ('thin snow, track-snow').
