About Danp Rigsson, King in Denmark

The source for Danp is this line from Ynglingatal, when speaking of the Swedish kings:

"Dygve's mother was Drott, a daughter of King Danp, the son of Rig, who was first called "king" in the Danish tongue. His descendants always afterwards considered the title of king the title of highest dignity. Dygve was the first of his family to be called king, for his predecessors had been called "Drottnar", and their wives "Drottningar", and their court "Drott". Each of their race was called Yngve, or Yngune, and the whole race together Ynglinger. The Queen Drott was a sister of King Dan Mikillati, from whom Denmark a took its name"

Ynglingesaga: Dygves moder var Drott, datter af kong Danp, som var søn af den Rig, som først blev kaldt «konge» i den danske tunge. Hans ætmænd bar stedse siden kongenavn som øverste værdighedsnavn. Dygve blev først i sin æt kaldt «konge», men før hed de «drotner», deres hustruer «drotninger» [dronninger] og hirdmændene «drott». Men hver mand i ætten kaldtes stadig «Yngve» eller «Yngune», men alle tilsammen «Ynglinger». Dronning Drott var søster til kong Dan den storladne, som Danmark har faaet navn efter.
