About Alf "Finnalf" Raumsson, King of Alvheim

Alf (Finnalf) is a legendary figure from "Hversum Noreg Byggdist", part of Flateyabok.

He is the son of Raum the Old by Bergdis the Jotne, and was raised by his mother's brother Bergfinn; he's therefore called Finnalf.

Kong Raum hadde drikkelag i jula med Bergfinn, sønn av Thrym jotun fra Vorma og gikk da i seng med Bergdis, hans søster. Etter dette fikk hun tre sønner: Bjørn, Brand og Alf. Alf ble fostret av Bergfinn og ble kalt Finnalf. Bjørn bodde hos sin mor og ble kalt Jotunbjørn. Hun sendte Brand til Rauma, hans far, som ga ham til gudene; han ble kalt Gudbrand. Kong Raum ga ham den dalen som het Gudbrandsdalen, Jotunbjørn ga han Raumsdal og Alf Østerdalen og alt nord for Veneren og fra Gøtaelv og nord til Glomma. Dette ble da kalt Alfheim
