11827 † death in Lake Mälaren, Uppsala, Sweden. ·King Ingjald was at a feast in Raening, when he heard that King Ivar's army was in the neighbourhood. Ingjald thought he had not strength to go into battle against Ivar, and he saw well that if he betook himself to flight his enemies would swarm around him from all corners. He and Aasa took a resolution which has become celebrated. They drank until all their people were dead drunk, and then put fire to the hall; and it was consumed, with all who were in it, including themselves, King Ingjald, and Aasa. Thus says Thjodolf: -- "With fiery feet devouring flame Has hunted down a royal game At Raening, where King Ingjald gave To all his men one glowing grave. On his own hearth the fire he raised, A deed his foemen even praised; By his own hand he perished so, And life for freedom did forego." event·was made infamous for his treachery against his own nobles following the death of his father || "When a king died, his successor was supposed to attend the funeral feast and there sit at the foot of the throne. A huge beaker was brought in. The heir had to pledge to do some might deed of valor, and then drain the beaker to the bottom. After this ceremony, he was led to the throne and proclaimed king. When Igjald planned the funeral of his father Anund the Cultivator, he invited all the petty kings and jarls of the neighboring areas to attend the feast. There he stood up, made a vow to increase his kingdom by half on every side, and drained the beaker. He then allowed his guests to become drunk. At this point he left the hall, surrounded it with his men, and set it on fire, thus killing all his potential rivals. For his treachery he became known as Ingjald Illräde" event ·ordered a great feast to be prepared in Upsal, when Ingjald took the dominions and the kingdom of his father, and intended at that feast to enter on his heritage after King Onund his father || He had a large hall made ready for the occasion -- one not less, nor less sumptuous, than that of Upsal; and this hall was called the Seven Kings Hall, and in it were seven high seats for kings. Then King Ingjald sent men all through Sweden, and invited to his feast kings, earls, and other men of consequence. To this heirship-feast came King Algaut, his father-in-law; Yngvar king of Fjadryndaland, with his two sons, Alf and Agnar; King Sporsnjall of Nerike; King Sighvat of Aattundaland: but Granmar king of Sodermanland did not come. ... Now when the guests had become drunk towards evening King Ingjald told Svipdag's sons, Gautvid and Hylvid, to arm themselves and their men, as had before been settled; and accordingly they went out, and came up to the new hall, and set fire to it. The hall was soon in a blaze, and the six kings, with all their people, were burned in it. Those who tried to come out were killed. Then King Ingjald laid all the dominions these kings had possessed under himself, and took scatt from them. event ·is said to have been the last fey-born pagan sacrol "peace king" associated with human sacrifice in his own family event ·attending a mid-winter festival with his father, and King Yngvar had also come there with his sons. Alf, King Yngvar's son, and Ingjald, King Onund's son, were there -- both about six years old. They amused themselves with child's play, in which each should be leading on his army. In their play Ingjald found himself not so strong as Alf, and was so vexed that he almost cried. His foster-brother Gautvid came up, led him to his foster-father Svipdag the Blind, and told him how ill it appeared that he was weaker and less manly than Alf, King Yngvar's son. Svipdag replied that it was a great shame. The day after Svipdag took the heart of a wolf, roasted it on the tongs, and gave it to the king's son Ingjald to eat, and from that time he became a most ferocious person, and of the worst disposition ONUNDSSON, King Ingjaldr Illraoa Of Uppsala (I532)
 
11828 † death ·After his son's had left him, they began again with enchantments and witchcraft, to try if they could destroy their father. The sorceress Huld said that by witchcraft she could bring it about by this means, that a murderer of his own kin should never be wanting in the Yngling race; and they agreed to have it so. Thereafter they collected men, came unexpectedly in the night on Visbur, and burned him in his house. So sings Thjodolf: -- "Have the fire-dogs' fierce tongues yelling Lapt Visbur's blood on his own hearth? Have the flames consumed the dwelling Of the here's soul on earth? Madly ye acted, who set free The forest foe, red fire, night thief, Fell brother of the raging sea, Against your father and your chief." event married the daughter of Aude the Rich, and gave her as her bride-gift three large farms, and a gold ornament event ·confronted in Uppsala by his first two sons, when the one was twelve and the other thirteen years of age, and they desired to have their mother's dower; but he would not deliver it to them. Then they said that the gold ornament should be the death of the best man in all his race, and they returned home VANLANDASSON, Visbur (I28784)
 
11829 † death·As they were going across a river at a place called Skjotan's [the Weapon's] Ford, a labouring thrall came running to the river-side, and threw a hayfork into their troop. It struck the king on the head, so that he fell instantly from his horse and died. In those times the chief who ravaged a country was called Gram, and the men-at-arms under him Gramer. Thjodolf sings of it thus: -- "What news is this that the king's men, Flying eastward through the glen, Report? That Dag the Brave, whose name Is sounded far and wide by Fame -- That Dag, who knew so well to wield The battle-axe in bloody field, Where brave men meet, no more will head The brave -- that mighty Dag is dead! "Varva was wasted with the sword, And vengeance taken for the bird -- The little bird that used to bring News to the ear of the great king. Varva was ravaged, and the strife Was ended, when the monarch's life Was ended too -- the great Dag fell By the hay-fork of a base thrall!" event ·succeeded his father, and was so wise a man that he understood the language of birds event ·had a sparrow which told him much news, and flew to different countries. Once the sparrow flew to Reidgotaland, to a farm called Varva, where he flew into the peasant's corn-field and took his grain. The peasant came up, took a stone, and killed the sparrow event ·ill-pleased that his sparrow did not come home; and as he, in a sacrifice of expiation, inquired after the sparrow, he got the answer that it was killed at Varva. Thereupon he ordered a great army, and went to Gotland; and when he came to Varva he landed with his men and plundered, and the people fled away before him. King Dag returned in the evening to his ships, after having killed many people and taken many prisoners DYGGVASSON, King Dagr Spaka (I28776)

11831 ·A regular feature of old pedigrees recorded by monks was an attempt to link them with the genealogies of the Scriptures. In an Anglo-Saxon pedigree of great length--that of the kings of Wessex (the ancestors of Elizabeth II)--the line is thus traced to Sceaf, "a son of Noah born in the Ark." ASGARD, Itermon Of (I579)

11835 ·became king of the Swedes after his father event ·a wise man, who made great sacrifices to the gods; but being no warrior, he lived quietly at home † death ·The answer from Odin on the sacrifice of his second son was that he should live as long as he gave him one of his sons every tenth year, and also that he should name one of the districts of his country after the number of sons he should offer to Odin. When he had sacrificed the seventh of his sons he continued to live; but so that he could not walk, but was carried on a chair. Then he sacrificed his eighth son, and lived thereafter ten years, lying in his bed. Now he sacrificed his ninth son, and lived ten years more; but so that he drank out of a horn like a weaned infant. He had now only one son remaining, whom he also wanted to sacrifice, and to give Odin Upsal and the domains thereunto belonging, under the name of the Ten Lands, but the Swedes would not allow it; so there was no sacrifice, and King On died, and was buried in a mound at Upsal. Since that time it is called On's sickness when a man dies, without pain, of extreme old age. Thjodolf tell of this: -- "In Upsal's town the cruel king Slaughtered his sons at Odin's shrine -- Slaughtered his sons with cruel knife, To get from Odin length of life. He lived until he had to turn His toothless mouth to the deer's horn; And he who shed his children's blood Sucked through the ox's horn his food. At length fell Death has tracked him down, Slowly, but sure, in Upsal's town." event·attacked by Olaf the Bold, son of Friedlief, and nephew of Halfdan, who deposed him event ·again fled to West Goterland while Olaf the Bold ruled in Uppsala for twentyfive years, until he was killed by Starkad "the Old" event ·deposed from Uppsala by Halfdan, son of Frode the Peaceful, son of Dan Mikellati, following twentyfive years of ruling Uppsala, and fled to Wester Gotland where he ruled another twentyfive years event ·returned to Uppsala, when he was sixty years of age, on Halfdan's death event·made a great sacrifice, and in it offered up his son to Odin. He got an answer from Odin, that he should live sixty years longer; and he was afterwards king in Upsal for twenty-five years event returned again to Uppsala following the death of Olaf the Bold, and again sacrificed to Odin, and offered yet another son for another twentyfive years of rule JÖRUNDSSON, King Aun Gamli Of The Swedes (I28768)

11839 ·King Egil was a great hunter, and often rode into the forest to chase wild animals. Once he rode out with his men to hunt in the forest. The king had traced an animal a long while, and followed it in the forest, separated from all his men. He observed at last that it was the bull, and rode up to it to kill it. The bull turned round suddenly, and the king struck him with his spear; but it tore itself out of the wound. The bull now struck his horn in the side of the horse, so that he instantly fell flat on the earth with the king. The king sprang up, and was drawing his sword, when the bull struck his horns right into the king's breast. The king's men then came up and killed the bull. The king lived but a short time, and was buried in a mound at Upsal. Thjodolf sings of it thus: -- "The fair-haired son of Odin's race, Who fled before fierce Tunne's face, Has perished by the demon-beast Who roams the forests of the East. The hero's breast met the full brunt Of the wild bull's shaggy front; The hero's heart's asunder torn By the fell Jotun's spear-like horn." event·succeeded as king in Sweden after his father's death event ·no warrior, but sat quietly at home event ·rebelled against by a slave of his late father's named Tunne, who'd taken Aunn's treasure and buried it, and when Egil withheld the respect he felt he'd deserved, he unearthed the treasure and used it to gather about him men to pillage and maraud King Egil's lands, and Tunne won every battle they fought and eventually forced Egil to flee to Denmark event ·assisted against the usurper Tunne by King Frode the Bold of Denmark, who provided men, in exchange for the promise of a tax from Egil, and Egil therewith recovered Uppsala event ·did not fulfill his promise of paying tax to Frode, but managed to remain friends with the king anyway AUNSSON, King Egill Of Uppsala (I28767)
 
11840 ·Nothing is told of him but that he died in his bed in Upsal, and was transported to the Fyrisvold, where his body was burned on the river bank, and where his standing stone still remains. So says Thjodolf: -- "I have asked wise men to tell Where Domar rests, and they knew well. Domar, on Fyrie's wide-spread ground, Was burned, and laid on Yngve's mound." DOMALDASSON, King Domarr (I28778)

One of his horses was called Slongve, and another Raven. This horse he had taken from Ole on his death, and bred from him a horse, also called Raven, which the king sent in a present to King Godgest in Halogaland. When Godgest mounted the horse he was not able to manage him, and fell off and was killed. This accident happened at Omd in Halogaland. King Adils was at a Disa sacrifice; and as he rode around the Disa hall his horse' Raven stumbled and fell, and the king was thrown forward upon his head, and his skull was split, and his brains dashed out against a stone. Adils died at Upsal, and was buried there in a mound. The Swedes called him a great king. Thjodolf speaks thus of him: -- "Witch-demons, I have heard men say, Have taken Adils' life away. The son of kings of Frey's great race, First in the fray, the fight, the chase, Fell from his steed -- his clotted brains Lie mixed with mire on Upsal's plains. Such death (grim Fate has willed it so) Has struck down Ole's deadly foe." event ·attacked by King Halfdan's son Helge, who ruled at that time over Leidre, who came to Sweden with so great an army, that King Adils saw no other way than to flee at once event ·went, one expedition, to Saxland with his troops. There a king was reigning called Geirthjof, and his wife was called Alof the Great; but nothing is told of their children. The king was not at home, and Adils and his men ran up to the king's house and plundered it, while others drove a herd of cattle down to the strand. The herd was attended by slave-people, churls, and girls, and they took all of them together.

Thjodolf sings of it thus: -- "Certain it is the Estland foe The fair-haired Swedish king laid low.
