About Vanlandi / Wanlanda (Vanlande) Svegdasson (Sveigdesson) Sveigdirson (de VINGULMARK, de SUÈDE)

Alt Death Year: 323, 367, 369

http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanlande Vanlande eller Vanland (fornvästnordiska Vanlandi) var kung av Svitjod av Ynglingaätten och satt i Uppsala. Han är omnämnd i Ynglingatal och Ynglingasagan i Heimskringla. Han ska ha varit son till Svegder som han efterträdde som kung.

Vanlande beskrivs av Snorre som en stor krigare som ofta reste ut i världen. En vinter bodde han hos Snjå den gamle (Snær gamli) i Lappland (Finnland) och fick hans dotter Driva till maka. Våren efter for han hem, men lovade att komma tillbaka om tre år. När Vanlande glömde bort detta och inte kom tillbaka på tio år skickade hon deras son Visbur till honom med sejdkvinnan Huld. Hon skulle skicka kungen tillbaka till Driva eller om detta misslyckades skulle hon döda honom. När hon sejdade fick Vanlande lust att fara till Lappland men hindrades av sina män. Huld skickade då en mara som red honom till döds. Han begravdes sedan på Skutåns strand och Visbur efterträdde honom som kung.

Vanlande är troligen bara en mytologisk gestalt och kan då ha tillhört gudastammen vanerna i den nordiska mytologin.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanlandi Vanlandi or Vanlande was a Swedish king at Uppsala of the House of Yngling in Norse mythology. He was the son of Sveigðir whom he succeeded as king. He married a girl from Finnland (territories inhabited by Finno-Ugric peoples), but forgot about her. In revenge, the girl arranged so that Vanlandi was hag ridden to death. He was succeeded by his son Visbur.

Snorri Sturluson wrote of Vanlandi in his Ynglinga saga (1225) (note that the translator has rendered Finnland as Finland):

Vanlandi hét son Svegðis, er ríki tók eptir hann ok réð fyrir Uppsala auð; hann var hermaðr mikill, ok hann fór víða um lönd. Hann þá vetrvist á Finnlandi með Snjá hinum gamla, ok fékk þar dóttr hans Drífu. En at vári fór hann á brott, en Drífa var eptir, ok hét hann at koma aptr á þriggja vetra fresti; en hann kom eigi á 10 vetrum. Þá sendi Drífa eptir Huld seiðkonu, en sendi Vísbur, son þeirra Vanlanda, til Svíþjóðar. Drífa keypti at Huld seiðkonu, at hon skyldi síða Vanlanda til Finnlands, eða deyða hann at öðrum kosti. En er seiðr var framiðr, þá var Vanlandi at Uppsölum; þá gerði hann fúsan at fara til Finnlands, en vinir hans ok ráðamenn bönnuðu honum, ok sögðu at vera mundi fjölkyngi Finna í farfýsi hans. Þá gerðist honum svefnhöfugt, ok lagðist hann till svefns. En er hann hafði lítt sofnat, kallaði hann ok sagði, at mara trað hann. Menn hans fóru til ok vildu hjálpa honum; en er þeir tóku uppi til höfuðsins, þá trað hon fótleggina, svá at nær brotnuðu; þá tóku þeir til fótanna, þá kafði hon höfuðit, svá at þar dó hann. Svíar tóku lík hans, ok var hann brendr við á þá er Skúta heitir. Þar váru settir bautasteinar hans.[1] Vanlande, Swegde's son, succeeded his father, and ruled over the Upsal domain. He was a great warrior, and went far around in different lands. Once he took up his winter abode in Finland with Snae the Old, and got his daughter Driva in marriage; but in spring he set out leaving Driva behind, and although he had promised to return within three years he did not come back for ten. Then Driva sent a message to the witch Huld; and sent Visbur, her son by Vanlande, to Sweden. Driva bribed the witch- wife Huld, either that she should bewitch Vanlande to return to Finland, or kill him. When this witch-work was going on Vanlande was at Upsal, and a great desire came over him to go to Finland; but his friends and counsellors advised him against it, and said the witchcraft of the Finn people showed itself in this desire of his to go there. He then became very drowsy, and laid himself down to sleep; but when he had slept but a little while he cried out, saying that the Mara was treading upon him. His men hastened to him to help him; but when they took hold of his head she trod on his legs, and when they laid hold of his legs she pressed upon his head; and it was his death. The Swedes took his body and burnt it at a river called Skytaa, where a standing stone was raised over him.[2][3]

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

   En á vit
   Vilja bróður
   vitta véttr
   Vanlanda kom,
   þá er trollkund
   of troða skyldi
   liðs grímhildr
   ljóna bága;
   ok sá brann á beði Skútu
   menglötuðr,
   er mara kvalði.[4][5]
   And Vanlande, in a fatal hour,
   Was dragg'd by Grimhild's daughter's power,
   The witch-wife's, to the dwelling-place
   Where men meet Odin face to face.
   Trampled to death, to Skytaa's shore
   The corpse his faithful followers bore;
   And there they burnt, with heavy hearts,
   The good chief killed by witchcraft's arts.[6][7]

The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation:

Iste [Swegthir] genuit Wanlanda, qui in somno a dæmone suffocatus interiit, quod genus dæmoniorum norwegico sermone mara vocatur. Hic genuit Wisbur [...][8] He [Sveigde] sired Vanlande, who died in his sleep, suffocated by a goblin, one of the demonic species known in Norwegian as 'mare'. He was the father of Visbur, [...][9] The even earlier source Íslendingabók cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and also gives Vanlandi as the successor of Svegðir and the predecessor of Visbur: v Svegðir. vi Vanlandi. vii Visburr. viii Dómaldr[10].

Geography

Geographical note: According to the article Skuttunge in Nationalencyklopedin, the creek skutá passed its name onto the village of Skuttunge and the parish of Skuttunge. The area does not only contain raised stones, but also 45 grave fields (most from the Iron Age), including a dolmen. The creek is today named after the village. -------------------- Konge i Uppsala (Sverige) -------------------- Vanlandi or Vanlande was a Swedish king at Uppsala of the House of Yngling in Norse mythology.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanlandi -------------------- Vanlande var son till Sveigder och tog över makten efter honom och styrde över Uppsala öd. Han var en krigare och han for vida omkring i länderna. Han tog vinterviste i Finland hos Snjå den gamle och fick hans dotter Driva till hustru. När det blev vår for han bort och lämnade Driva kvar men lovade henne att komma åter inom tre vintrar. När han inte återkommit inom 10 vintrar skickade Driva efter sejdkvinnan Huld och kommer överens med henne att hon skulle sejda så att Vanlade skulle komma till Finland eller som andra utväg skulle han dödas. Sonen Visbur sändes till Svitjod. När sejden gjordes var Vanlande i Uppsala. Då fick han lust att fara till Finland, men hans rådgivare förbjöd honom för de trodde att det var Finnarnas trolldom som gav honom lusten. Under natten grep maran honom och klämde hans huvud så att dog. Sverna tog hans lik och han blev bränd vid den å som heter Skutå och reste hans bautastenar. -------------------- Vanland, Svegders Søn, givtede sig paa et af sine Tog med den finske Kong Snø den Gamles Datter Drifva, med Løfte om to Aar efter at hente hende til Upsala. Da Vanland opsatte dette i 10 Aar, og Drifva havde raadspurgt Spaaqvinden Huld, afsendte hun sin Søn Wisbur for at paakræve Løftets Opfyldelse. Vanland, i Begyndelsen villig dertil, afslog dog Reisen paa sine Hofmænds Raad, hvorpaa en heftig Sygdom angreb ham saa han deraf omkom. -------------------- Vanlande, Swegde's son, succeeded his father, and ruled over the Upsal domain.

He then became very drowsy, and laid himself down to sleep; but when he had slept but a little while he cried out, saying that the Mara (a supernatural creature which is believed to torment people in their sleep by sitting on their chest and "riding" them, thus causing nightmares) was treading upon him.

He was the son of Sveigðir whom he succeeded as king. He married a girl from Finnland (territories inhabited by Finno-Ugric peoples), but forgot about her. In revenge, the girl arranged so that Vanlandi was hag ridden to death. He was succeeded by his son Visbur.

Snorri Sturluson wrote of Vanlandi in his Ynglinga saga (1225) (note that the translator has rendered Finnland as Finland): Vanlande, Swegde's son, succeeded his father, and ruled over the Upsal domain. He was a great warrior, and went far around in different lands. Once he took up his winter abode in Finland with Snae the Old, and got his daughter Driva in marriage; but in spring he set out leaving Driva behind, and although he had promised to return within three years he did not come back for ten. Then Driva sent a message to the witch Huld; and sent Visbur, her son by Vanlande, to Sweden. Driva bribed the witch- wife Huld, either that she should bewitch Vanlande to return to Finland, or kill him. When this witch-work was going on Vanlande was at Upsal, and a great desire came over him to go to Finland; but his friends and counsellors advised him against it, and said the witchcraft of the Finn people showed itself in this desire of his to go there. He then became very drowsy, and laid himself down to sleep; but when he had slept but a little while he cried out, saying that the Mara was treading upon him. His men hastened to him to help him; but when they took hold of his head she trod on his legs, and when they laid hold of his legs she pressed upon his head; and it was his death. The Swedes took his body and burnt it at a river called Skytaa, where a standing stone was raised over him.[2][3]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanlandi -------------------- Vanlande var son till Sveigder och tog över makten efter honom och styrde över Uppsala öd. Han var en krigare och han for vida omkring i länderna. Han tog vinterviste i Finland hos Snjå den gamle och fick hans dotter Driva till hustru. När det blev vår for han bort och lämnade Driva kvar men lovade henne att komma åter inom tre vintrar. När han inte återkommit inom 10 vintrar skickade Driva efter sejdkvinnan Huld och kommer överens med henne att hon skulle sejda så att Vanlade skulle komma till Finland eller som andra utväg skulle han dödas. Sonen Visbur sändes till Svitjod. När sejden gjordes var Vanlande i Uppsala. Då fick han lust att fara till Finland, men hans rådgivare förbjöd honom för de trodde att det var Finnarnas trolldom som gav honom lusten. Under natten grep maran honom och klämde hans huvud så att dog. Sverna tog hans lik och han blev bränd vid den å som heter Skutå och reste hans bautastenar. -------------------- Vanland, Svegders Søn, givtede sig paa et af sine Tog med den finske Kong Snø den Gamles Datter Drifva, med Løfte om to Aar efter at hente hende til Upsala. Da Vanland opsatte dette i 10 Aar, og Drifva havde raadspurgt Spaaqvinden Huld, afsendte hun sin Søn Wisbur for at paakræve Løftets Opfyldelse. Vanland, i Begyndelsen villig dertil, afslog dog Reisen paa sine Hofmænds Raad, hvorpaa en heftig Sygdom angreb ham saa han deraf omkom. -------------------- Vanlande, Swegde's son, succeeded his father, and ruled over the Upsal domain.

Birthdate: cirka 280

Birthplace: Upland, Sweden

Death: Died 340 in Uppsala, Skuta, Sweden

Occupation: Kung

Vanlande eller Vanland (fornvästnordiska Vanlandi) var kung av Svitjod av Ynglingaätten och satt i Uppsala. Han är omnämnd i Ynglingatal och Ynglingasagan i Heimskringla. Han ska ha varit son till Svegder som han efterträdde som kung.

Vanlande beskrivs av Snorre som en stor krigare som ofta reste ut i världen. En vinter bodde han hos Snjå den gamle (Snær gamli) i Lappland (Finnland) och fick hans dotter Driva till maka. Våren efter for han hem, men lovade att komma tillbaka om tre år. När Vanlande glömde bort detta och inte kom tillbaka på tio år skickade hon deras son Visbur till honom med sejdkvinnan Huld. Hon skulle skicka kungen tillbaka till Driva eller om detta misslyckades skulle hon döda honom. När hon sejdade fick Vanlande lust att fara till Lappland men hindrades av sina män. Huld skickade då en mara som red honom till döds. Han begravdes sedan på Skutåns strand och Visbur efterträdde honom som kung.

Vanlande är troligen bara en mytologisk gestalt och kan då ha tillhört gudastammen vanerna i den nordiska mytologin.
