About Svegdi Fjolnirson, King

Alt birth date: 281

http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svegder Sveigder eller Swegde var enligt legenden kung av Svitjod. Han ska ha efterträtt sin far Fjölner efter dennes död någon gång kring eller strax efter Kristi födelse och tillhörde Ynglingaätten. Enligt Heimskringla var han gift med Vana av Vanahem. Svegder sökte liksom Gylfe efter Asgård och Oden, men han blev dock bergtagen i en sten någonstans i Ryssland.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sveigdir Sveigðir, Sveigder or Swegde was a Swedish king of the House of Yngling in Norse mythology. He was the son of Fjölner, whom he succeeded as king, and he married Vana of Vanaheim, probably one of the Vanir.

Lured by a dwarf, Sveigðir disappeared into a stone and never came back. He was succeeded by his son Vanlandi.

Snorri Sturluson wrote of Sveigðir in his Ynglinga saga (1225):

Svegðir tók ríki eptir föður sinn; hann strengði þess heit at leita Goðheims ok Óðins hins gamla. Hann fór með 12 menn víða um heiminn, hann kom út í Tyrkland ok í Svíþjóð hina miklu ok hitti þar marga frændr sína ok vini, ok var í þeirri för 5 vetr. Þá kom hann aptr til Svíþjóðar, dvaldist hann þá enn heima um hríð. Hann hafði fengit konu þá er Vana hét út í Vanaheimi; var þeirra son Vanlandi. Svegðir fór enn at leita Goðheims. Ok í austanverðri Svíþjóð heitir bœr mikill at Steini, þar er steinn svá mikill sem stór hús. Um kveldit eptir sólarfall, þá er Svegðir gékk frá drykkju til svefnbúrs, sá hann til steinsins, at dvergr sat undir steininum. Svegðir ok hans menn váru mjök druknir ok runnu til steinsins. Dvergrinn stóð í durum ok kallaði á Sveigði, bað hann þar inn ganga, ef hann vildi Óðin hitta. Svegðir hljóp í steininn; en steinninn laukst þegar aptr, ok kom Svegðir eigi aptr.[1][2] Swegde took the kingdom after his father, and he made a solemn vow to seek Godheim and Odin. He went with twelve men through the world, and came to Turkland, and the Great Svithiod, where he found many of his connections. He was five years on this journey; and when he returned home to Sweden he remained there for some time. He had got a wife in Vanheim, who was called Vana, and their son was Vanlande. Swegde went out afterwards to seek again for Godheim, and came to a mansion on the east side of Swithiod called Stein, where there was a stone as big as a large house. In the evening after sunset, as Swegde was going from the drinking-table to his sleeping-room, he cast his eye upon the stone, and saw that a dwarf was sitting under it. Swegde and his man were very drunk, and they ran towards the stone. The dwarf stood in the door, and called to Swegde, and told him to come in, and he should see Odin. Swegde ran into the stone, which instantly closed behind him, and Swegde never came back.[3][4] Snorri also quoted some lines from Ynglingatal composed in the 9th century:

   En dagskjarr
   Dúrnis niðja
   salvörðuðr
   Sveigði vétti,
   þá er í stein
   enn stórgeði
   Dusla konr
   ept dvergi hljóp,
   ok salr bjartr
   þeira Sökmímis
   jötunbyggðr
   við jöfri gein.[5][6]
   By Diurnir's elfin race,
   Who haunt the cliffs and shun day's face,
   The valiant Swegde was deceived,
   The elf's false words the king believed.
   The dauntless hero rushing on,
   Passed through the yawning mouth of stone:
   It yawned – it shut – the hero fell,
   In Saekmime's hall, where giants dwell.[7][8]

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal written in the late 12th century and consequently older than Snorri's quotation:

Froyr vero genuit Fiolni, qui in dolio medonis dimersus est, cujus filius Swegthir nanum in petram persequitur nec redisse dicitur, quod pro certo fabulosum creditur.

Там имало скала, огромна като къща. Един ден, след залез слънце, Свейгдир излязъл от някакво пиршество, за да се приготвя за сън. Под скалата срещу тях съзряли джудже.

Där finns det en sten som är stor som ett hus. På kvällen efter solnedgången när Sveigder och hans män, mycket druckna, gick från dryckeslaget till sovhuset såg de att det satt en dvärg vid stenen och sprang dit. Dvärgen stod i dörren till stenen och ropade på Sveigder och bad honom komma in om han ville möta Oden. Sveigder sprang in och dörren stängdes efter honom och han kom aldrig ut igen. -------------------- Svegde etter Sveigde (Sveigdir) var ein mytisk konge av Ynglingeætta, son av Fjolne og far til Vanlande. Han er omtala i Ynglingesoga og i Den eldste Noregshistoria.

Snorre Sturlason fortel at Svegde hadde svore ein eid på at han ville leite etter Godheim og gamle Odin. Difor reiste han ute med tolv mann i fem år, men for så heimatt til Svitjod og ekta ei kvinne frå Vanaheim, som var kalla Vana. Sonen deira var Vanlande. Sidan for Svegde utatt på leit etter Godheim. Ein kveld kom han til ein gard som heitte Stein, der det låg ein stein i tunet, stor som eit hus. Om kvelden var Svegde drukken, og mennene hans med. Då såg dei det sat ein dverg under steinen. Dvergen kalla på Svegde og sa at døra attom var vegen inn til Odin og Godheim. Svegde sprang inn i steinen, og steinen let seg att. Svegde vart aldri meir sett.

Ynglingatal fortel:

Svegde han sveik, som i svali heldt vakt, den dagrædde for Durins ætt. Inn i steinen den storlynde åsa-frenden flaug etter dvergen, og Sokmimes sal den lysande, av jotunar bygd, vart gjevings grav. Durin og Sokmime er dvergenamn, som og kan finnast i Dvergatal (ein lut av Voluspå). Dvergen vaktar her døra mellom denne verda og den neste (daudedøra).

Den eldste Noregshistoria fortel berre at Svegde følgde dvergen inn i eit berg, og seier beintfram at dette nok lyt takast for eit eventyr. Tilvisinga til Odin er elles tydeleg nok. Odin er og draugedrott (gud for dei daude).

The Saga tells of his strange demise, also in a state of drunken-ness like his father. One night when Svegde and his men had been drinking excessively and were about to retire for the night, Svegde looked out and saw a large stone with a dwarf sitting under it. He rushed to the stone where the dwarf opened a door and urged Svegde to enter in order that he could see Odin. Svegde went in and never came out

-------------------- Notes for Sveigde Fjolnfarssen

Reiste i fem år kom bl a til Tyrkland og Store Svitjod.

Svegder havde gjort det Løfte at besøge Asernes Stamland ved det sorte Hav, men omkom paa sin niende reise. Sagaen beretter at en Dverg lokkede ham i Bjerg, under Foregivende at han der kulde træffe Othin, hvorefter Bjerget lukkede sig efter ham. --------------------

Some dwarfs lured him into a cave and shut the opening with a huge boulder and he was never seen again. May have been mythical. Disappeared during a journey which he made in order to find Odin the Old. [WBH - Sweden]
   !Ran after a dwarf when drunk and vanished into a boulder. [A History of the Vikings, p. 37]
   Son of Fiolner; disappeared during a journey which he made in order to find Odin the old. Father of Vanlande. [History of Sweden, p. 35]

The elf's false words the king believed.

The dauntless hero rushing on,

Passed through the yawning mouth of stone:

It yawned -- it shut -- the hero fell,

In Saekmime's hall, where giants dwell."

The Saga tells of his strange demise, also in a state of drunken-ness like his father. One night when Svegde and his men had been drinking excessively and were about to retire for the night, Svegde looked out and saw a large stone with a dwarf sitting under it. He rushed to the stone where the dwarf opened a door and urged Svegde to enter in order that he could see Odin. Svegde went in and never came out

-------------------- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sveig%C3%B0ir -------------------- Sveigðir, Sveigder or Swegde (Old Norse "Waving One"[1]) was a Swedish king of the House of Yngling in Norse mythology. He was the son of Fjölner, whom he succeeded as king, and he married Vana of Vanaheimr, probably one of the Vanir. Lured by a dwarf, Sveigðir disappeared into a stone and never came back. He was succeeded by his son Vanlandi.

Attestations

Snorri Sturluson wrote of Sveigðir in his Ynglinga saga (1225):

Svegðir tók ríki eptir föður sinn; hann strengði þess heit at leita Goðheims ok Óðins hins gamla. Hann fór með 12 menn víða um heiminn, hann kom út í Tyrkland ok í Svíþjóð hina miklu ok hitti þar marga frændr sína ok vini, ok var í þeirri för 5 vetr. Þá kom hann aptr til Svíþjóðar, dvaldist hann þá enn heima um hríð. Hann hafði fengit konu þá er Vana hét út í Vanaheimi; var þeirra son Vanlandi. Svegðir fór enn at leita Goðheims. Ok í austanverðri Svíþjóð heitir bœr mikill at Steini, þar er steinn svá mikill sem stór hús. Um kveldit eptir sólarfall, þá er Svegðir gékk frá drykkju til svefnbúrs, sá hann til steinsins, at dvergr sat undir steininum. Svegðir ok hans menn váru mjök druknir ok runnu til steinsins. Dvergrinn stóð í durum ok kallaði á Sveigði, bað hann þar inn ganga, ef hann vildi Óðin hitta. Svegðir hljóp í steininn; en steinninn laukst þegar aptr, ok kom Svegðir eigi aptr.[2][3]

Swegde took the kingdom after his father, and he made a solemn vow to seek Godheim and Odin. He went with twelve men through the world, and came to Turkland, and the Great Svithiod, where he found many of his connections. He was five years on this journey; and when he returned home to Sweden he remained there for some time. He had got a wife in Vanheim, who was called Vana, and their son was Vanlande. Swegde went out afterwards to seek again for Godheim, and came to a mansion on the east side of Swithiod called Stein, where there was a stone as big as a large house. In the evening after sunset, as Swegde was going from the drinking-table to his sleeping-room, he cast his eye upon the stone, and saw that a dwarf was sitting under it. Swegde and his man were very drunk, and they ran towards the stone. The dwarf stood in the door, and called to Swegde, and told him to come in, and he should see Odin. Swegde ran into the stone, which instantly closed behind him, and Swegde never came back.[4][5]

Snorri also quoted some lines from Ynglingatal composed in the 9th century:

   En dagskjarr
   Dúrnis niðja
   salvörðuðr
   Sveigði vétti,
   þá er í stein
   enn stórgeði
   Dusla konr
   ept dvergi hljóp,
   ok salr bjartr
   þeira Sökmímis
   jötunbyggðr
   við jöfri gein.[2][3]

   By Diurnir's elfin race,
   Who haunt the cliffs and shun day's face,
   The valiant Swegde was deceived,
   The elf's false words the king believed.
   The dauntless hero rushing on,
   Passed through the yawning mouth of stone:
   It yawned – it shut – the hero fell,
   In Saekmime's hall, where giants dwell.[4][6]

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal written in the late 12th century and consequently older than Snorri's quotation:

Froyr vero genuit Fiolni, qui in dolio medonis dimersus est, cujus filius Swegthir nanum in petram persequitur nec redisse dicitur, quod pro certo fabulosum creditur. Iste genuit Wanlanda [...][7]

Frøy engendered Fjolne, who was drowned in a tun of mead. His son, Sveigde, is supposed to have pursuded a dwarf into a stone and never to have returned, but this is plainly to be taken as a fairy-tale. He sired Vanlande, [...][8]

The even earlier source Íslendingabók from the early 12th century, cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and also gives Svegðir as the successor of Fjölnir and the predecessor of Vanlandi: iiii Fjölnir. sá er dó at Friðfróða. v Svegðir. vi Vanlandi[9]. -------------------- 3. SVEGDE - King of Svitjod as well as a place in Russia from where he got his wife who was named Vana. Svegde was born in 1 B.C. and died in 34 A.D. The Saga tells of his strange demise, also in a state of drunken-ness like his father. One night when Svegde and his men had been drinking excessively and were about to retire for the night, Svegde looked out and saw a large stone with a dwarf sitting under it. He rushed to the stone where the dwarf opened a door and urged Svegde to enter in order chat he could see Odin. Svegde went in and never came out. He and Vana had a son who was:
