    Very interesting, especially this little part:
    Konung Óláfr Trételgju Ingjaldsson of Vermaland
    a.k.a. Olaf, Olav "Tretelgia", "Tree-Hewer"
    d. aft. 0710 Venner lake (burnt in his house as a sacrifice to Odin for good crops)
    rel: Pagan
    occ: King of Vermaland (0680-0710); King of Vestfold; King of the Swedes
    m.
    Sólveig Hálfdansdóttir of Solřr
    children of Sólveig: Hálfdan I {below}
    Has anyone read "In search for Odin" (I'm not sure about the title) by Thor Heyerdahl? Supposedly, Thor and Odin was actual real life kings of Sweden. I don't know if he had any proof, since I haven't yet found the book anywhere.

    I was unaware that there was a book by Heyerdahl regarding this, but I am familar with his project by this title: In search of Odin - Thor Heyerdahl Project. I have read several articles about this, and here is a link that will give you some insight. He has some interesting theories, but some which I find a little strange. : I think you might be a little confused, though, as to where Thor Heyerdahl claim's Odin comes from...

    Since his first visit to the Caucasus early in the 1960s, Thor Heyerdahl had stored in his memory the similarities he found between the petroglyphs in Gobustan near Baku and the petroglyphs in Scandinavia, especially those in Alta, Norway. Even though this similarity belonged to pre-history and could not be transferred to later history at the beginning of the Viking era, Thor nevertheless suspected that there might be other cultural connective links between the Caucasus and Scandinavia.

    That was the reason for his visit to the region in the Autumn of 2000. He was on the trail of Odin (Wotan), the Germanic and Nordic god of the mythologies of the early sagas. According to Snorre, the Icelandic author of the Nordic Sagas, who wrote in the 13th century, Odin was supposed to have migrated from the region of the Caucasus or the area just east of the Black Sea near the turn of the first century AD. Thor wanted to test the veracity of Snorre and, consequently, organized the Joint Archaeological Excavation in Azov, Russia in 2001.
    Thor Heyerdahl's Final Projects (In Search of Odin)

    another of his interesting articles: Scandinavian Ancestry - Tracing Roots to Azerbaijan
    "Nature! We are surrounded and embraced by her:
    powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her.

    Without asking, or warning, she snatches us up into her circling dance, and whirls us on until we are tired, and drop from her arms." - Goethe

    Hva er dette for noe tull? Jeg mĺ innrřmme at jeg ikke tror han skjřnner de norrřne gudene. By the way, I think you mean of Norway. Hehe, I have never learnt of this; surprising to hear. To what time period are you referring here? This must have been beyond the timeroots of our ancients allthough as I said all ready, I believe he is ill interpreting things or confusing the Gods with powerfull men of Old who bore such names perhaps. Just a thought.

    No, not Norway: They are not worthy of such glorious kings. Every source for this indicates Sweden. One of our first royal families, the Scylfings (or Ynglingar in norse) was descended from the god Frey, according to the sagas. The first kings of this family are mythological, and has never been proved to exist (but never proved not to exist either), but the latter kings have indeed existed.

    Well, those who descended from Frey ruled Sweden from around 600 to 900 AD, if I remember correctly. Could also be some centuries earlier. Odin and Thor would probably predate that dynasty with several centuries, Odin of course being the first king.
