About Thorri Snaersson, King in Kvenland

Thorri var en navngjeten konge som rådde over Gotland, Kvenland og Finland. Til ham blotet kvenene for å få snø og godt skiføre. Dette var deres beste tid. Blotet skulle være midt på vinteren, og derfor kalles det siden Thorremåned. Kong Thorri hadde tre barn; sønnene hans het Nor og Gor, og datteren Goi. Goi ble borte og Thorri blotet da en måned senere enn han pleide å blote, og siden kalte de denne måneden de da hadde framfor seg for Goi. Nor og Gor lette etter søsteren sin.

Legendary king in part of Sveden.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%B3r he is described in two quite similiar stories of the "Flateyarbok" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flatey_Book) as the king of Götaland, Finland and Kvenland, and the father of Nor the founder of Norway and Gorr, the founder of Dennmark, as well as a daughter, Goi.

The two accounts (Fundinn Noregr and Hversu Noregr Bygddist) differ on some points.

Thorri was a great sacrificer, he had a sacrifice every year at midwinter; that they called Thorri’s sacrifice; from that the month took its name. One winter there were these tidings at Thorri’s sacrifice, that Goi was lost and gone, and they set out to search for her, but she was not found. And when that month passed away Thorri made them take to sacrifice, and sacrifice for this, that they might know surely where Goi was hidden away.
