About Valdar Hroarsson König Hroarsson

Valdar, legendary Danish king.

Basics

  • Father: Hroar son of Halfdan
  • Son: Harald the Old

Sources

The Old Norse genealogy work Hversu Noregr byggdist tells that Hróarr had a son named Valdar, the father of Harald the Old, the father of Halfdan the Valiant, the father of Ivar Vidfamne, who was the maternal grandfather of Harald Wartooth. Harald fell at the Battle of the Brávellir against his nephew Sigurd Ring, a king of Sweden and the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.

Norwegian: "Harald den gamle, sønn av Valdar den gavmilde Hroarsønn, var gift med kong Heidreks datter, Hervor. Sønnen deres var Halfdan den rådkloke, far til Ivar den vidfadme, far til Aud den dyptenkte."

Icelandic: "Haraldr inn gamli, sonr Valdars ins milda Hróarssonar, átti Hervöru Heiðreksdóttur konungs. Þeira sonr var Hálfdan snjalli, faðir Ívars víðfaðma, föður Auðar innar djúpauðgu."

This account is not about presenting the life of Hroðgar, but in presenting how Harald Fairhair was descended from kings and heroes in Scandinavian legend. The only reason for assuming that Hróarr is the same as Hroðgar, the Scylding, is the fact that only Hroðgar would be a personage of old so famous so as not to need any further identification than his name. However, the Skjöldunga saga tells that a Valdar disputed that Rörek, the cousin of Halga succeeded Hroðulf (Hrólfr Kraki) as the king of the Daner. After the war, Rörek took Zealand, while Valdar took Skåne. If based on the same tradition as Hversu Noregr byggdist, Valdar had the right to claim the throne being the son of the former king Hroðgar.

http://www.mathematical.com/hroarssonvaldar547.html -------------------- Valdar was the name of one or several legendary Danish kings.

According to Hversu Noregr byggdist, a Valdar was the son of Roar (Hroðgar) of the house of Skjöldung (Scylding). This source makes Valdar the father of Harald the Old, the father of Halfdan the Valiant, the father of Ivar Vidfamne. If he is of the same origin as the Valdar of Hervarar saga, this account adds four generations (Harald the Old, Halfdan the Valiant, Ivar Vidfamne and effectively Ivar's daughter Alfhild/Auðr who was Harald Wartooth's mother according to all accounts) between Valdar and Harald Wartooth, who was Valdar's son according to the Hervarar saga.

The Skjöldunga saga tells that a Valdar disputed that Rörek, the cousin of Helgi (Halga) succeeded Hrólfr Kraki (Hroðulf) as the king of the Daner. After the war, Rörek took Zealand, while Valdar took Skåne. If based on the same tradition as Hversu Noregr byggdist, Valdar had the right to claim the throne being the son of the former king Hróarr (Hroðgar).
