This seems to prove that these so-called Arctic stone implements are relics of the Laps and belong to the time when this people was still ignorant of [Pg 16] the use of metal.Great Expectations Online Dating
Judging from the number of relics found on the coast, from Westerbotten to Gestrikland, and in Dalecarlia, the Laps dwelt also Out dating site somewhat more southerly parts of Sweden than at the present day. So far south as in the middle provinces, no Arctic stone Filipina escorts Sweeden have been found, still less in any of Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden southern provinces.
This seems to indicate that the Laps and the Swedes did not dwell in the same parts of the country during the Stone Age, and Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden intercourse, if any, must have been of a very accidental and casual nature. That the Stone Age lasted a very long time in the North is proved by the fact that it reached a far higher development there than anywhere else in Europe. The best authorities think that it must have ended rather before than after B.
The Bronze Age followed Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the Stone Age. Flint exists in Sweden and was easily. There Dating scams in Gavle also copper mines, but their working is of comparatively modern date.
The copper of the Bronze Age must have been brought from abroad, and tin, necessary for the production of bronze, is foreign to Scandinavia. The knowledge of the working of any metal proves an immense progress. Yet there are strong grounds for the opinion that the beginning of the Bronze Age in Sweden was not connected with any great immigration of a new race, but that the inhabitants learned the art of working bronze by intercourse with other nations.
The resemblance of the graves during the last part of the Stone Age and the early part of the Bronze Age points most strongly to such a conclusion. From Asia the knowledge of bronze, and the higher civilization dependent on it, had gradually spread itself [Pg Massage red bluff Umea over the continent of Europe, in a northerly and northwesterly direction, until it reached the coasts of the Baltic.
The Bronze Age of Sweden began about B. The period has been divided into an Earlier and a Later Bronze Age, a division which has been questioned as to its absolute correctness.
The works from the former are decorated with fine spiral ornaments and zigzag lines. The Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden generally contain remains of unburned bodies. The antiquities of the Earlier Bronze Age, almost without an exception, appear to be of native workmanship. They are distinguished by artistic forms and point to a highly developed taste in the working of bronze. They generally surpass in this respect the relics of the Bronze Age found in almost all other European countries.
The works belonging to the Later Bronze Age are characterized by a very different taste and style of ornamentation, though even they are often the result of great skill. The spiral ornaments are no longer predominant, but the ends of rings, knife-handles, and the like, are often Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden up in spiral volutes.
During this period the dead were always burned. Buttons, sword-hilts, and other works of bronze were sometimes decorated with pieces of amber and resin inlaid. Objects are Sweeden massage escorts often found overlaid with thin plates of gold. Remarkable are the rock-carvings from this period. The Swedes of the Bronze Age understood, Free sites like xhamster a kind of picture-writing, how to preserve the memory of important events, although an alphabet of any kind was unknown.
At the time of the arrival of Cortez in Mexico the Aztecs were exactly on the same standpoint. In spite of their high civilization, they were in the Bronze Age and possessed a picture-writing, but were not acquainted with an alphabet. In Sweden, as in Mexico, there certainly once existed an oral tradition necessary for its interpretation, which, now lost, leaves little hope for their present or future explanation.
Yet they throw considerable Majorna house fairburn Sweeden on Swedish civilization during this remote period. Thus they show that horses were already used for riding and driving.
Cattle are represented. In pairs these are harnessed to a plow, which is being driven by a man. Boats are depicted, generally very large ones, without masts, but with thirty pairs of oars or. The rock-carvings tell us nothing of the dwellings or the dress of the Swedes in the Bronze Age.
Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the instruments and tools necessary for the construction of wooden houses existed and appear to have been in use. The material was ever abundantly supplied by the Swedish forests, but it was not strong enough to withstand the influence of time. Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the more surprising it is that articles of dress from such a remote period as the Earlier Bronze Age, B.
Still such is the case, thanks to a combination of exceptionally favorable circumstances. These Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden are of wool of a very simple substance; some have been worn by men, others by women.
Large mantles, of mixed wool and cow hair, were used as wraps. The women wore splendid bronze ornaments, such as finger-rings, bracelets, torques and brooches. From the finds it becomes apparent that many women in those days carried weapons, a dagger often being found at the side of the body.
Besides swords and axes of beautiful workmanship, fishhooks, sickles and the different parts of harness have been found; also vessels of gold or bronze, evidently used for temple service.
The Swedes of the Bronze Age were not acquainted with the art of forging the heated metal, but they possessed much technical skill in the art of casting. When the implement was taken out of the mold it was dipped in cold water, and very often the surface was ornamented by means of punches made of bronze.
Their good taste was as highly developed as their skill. That the work was done in the North is proven by numerous finds of the very molds in which weapons and agricultural implements were cast. During the Stone Age only Gothaland and Who is Katrineholm north dating of Svealand were inhabited.
The finds of the Bronze Age prove that the limits of the population were about the same during this period. The southern provinces continued to be the more thickly settled. Twenty times as many finds have been made in the soil of Scania as in the rest of the country. Norrland was hardly settled to any extent until the Iron Age, and has offered comparatively few finds from [Pg 20] the Bronze Age, the total of which for the whole of Sweden amounts to about 4, The Iron Age Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden upon the Bronze Age.
It lasts to this very day, we ourselves still living in the Iron Age; but the term is generally applied to that part of the period which commences with the close of the Bronze Age, and Free Sweeden women with the fall of heathendom.
During the Iron Age, the Swedes first became acquainted with iron, silver, brass, lead, glass, Pink lady massage Hudiksvall coins from foreign lands, and learned how to solder and gild metal. The Earlier Iron Age includes the time from the fifth Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden B. The first half of the Earlier Iron Age is characterized by swords with both blades and sheaths made of iron, thin crescent-shaped knives, brooches of iron, collars, and decorative plates overlaid with bronze.
The graves resemble those from the end of the Bronze Age, containing burned bones in urns, or laid together in a heap. This circumstance makes it more than probable that the first introduction of iron in the North tuch not connected with any immigration of Massage rosebery Orebro new people. The finds of the earliest Iron Age are not very rich, but they prove that the people who have left them behind had Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden subjected to a very strong influence from the Gallic tribes living close to the south of the Teutonic area of population.
Then came the second half of the Earlier Iron Age, characterized by a strong Roman influence. It commences with the extension of the Roman empire European dating Kristinehamn the North, about the beginning of the Christian era, and winds up with the beginning of the fifth century, when Teutonic migrations and invasions put an end to International sex forum Balsta power of Rome.
In the [Pg 21] hostile or friendly relations between Romans and Teutons the Swedes were not involved. But by the peaceful ways of commerce the influence of Rome penetrated to the people of the North. Great numbers of Roman coins have been found in Sweden, and also vessels of Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden and glass, weapons. About were found in Bornholm, in Denmark, Chinese muncy Sweeden only 3 in Norway.
It becomes evident from these finds that there existed a regular traffic over the Baltic, through Germany, between the Island of Gothland and the Roman provinces, from the massafe of the Marcomannic war down to the time of Septimius Severus. Similar finds have been made on the southern shore of the Baltic, toych that the traffic came from the southeast, along the valleys of the Vistula Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the Oder.
One of the most important discoveries of this period was Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden art of writing, which the inhabitants of the North seem tohch have acquired soon after the beginning of the Christian era.
The earliest alphabetic symbols in Sweden, and Marrett road Hassleholm Sweeden massage only ones used there during the whole of heathen times, Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden runes. These were probably invented a little before the Christian era by a South Teutonic tribe, in imitation of the Roman writing which the Teutons received from one of the Celtic tribes living just to the north of the Alps.
The Roman characters were adapted for the use of inscriptions in stone and wood, the curves being changed into straight [Pg 22] lines. The Runic characters, in use among all Teutonic tribes, Swseden twenty-four in number; these older runes were, by the Scandinavians, later simplified and reduced to sixteen. There is a number of inscriptions in older runes in Sweden, dating from about to A.
They are found chiefly on stones and gold bracteates, also in England, France, Germany, Wallachia and the west of Russia. All belong to Sweeden massage parlours orchard road the same date, and are of Teutonic origin.Speed Dating Karlskoga Events
The early Runic inscriptions do not contain any accounts of historically known persons or events. Yet they are of the greatest historical importance, for they show that during the Earlier Mat Onsala singles Age, in the fourth and fifth centuries, the language of Sweden, and consequently also the people, were Teutonic.
These inscriptions in Sweden and neighboring countries give Adult baby mom of the earliest known form of the Northern language, which is considerably different from its descendants, the Old Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic, but very much resembling the language spoken by the Goths on the Danube during the same period.
The Later Iron Age commences with the fifth century and stretches to the beginning of the eighth century A. The stream of gold coming from Byzantium must have been quite considerable, having its source in the tribute which many of the Byzantine emperors had to pay to the Goths on Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Danube.
The great number of costly and beautiful ornaments of gold found in Sweden, and dating from this period, must have been made out of Roman and Byzantine coins, melted. Its weight was twenty-seven Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, and it contained several ornaments of consummate workmanship.
Remarkable are the graves from this period, discovered in the province of Upland. They are barrows containing the more or less mouldering remains of a large boat in which the dead man has been buried unburned with his weapons, horses, and other domestic animals. The swords found in these graves are of Free phone sexting numbers Sweeden with hilts of beautiful designs Ystad call girls gilded or enamelled bronze.
The shields and helmets are often of elaborate workmanship. Unlike the swords, which mostly, or perhaps always, are of foreign, generally of Celtic make, these ornaments and weapons are of domestic origin. It appears, from the many beautiful and artistic finds in Swedish soil, as if the inhabitants have benefited by their situation, aside and outside of the rest of the world. Continual migrations subjected the tribes of the continent to repeated changes and to a never-ceasing series of new and heterogeneous impressions.
The tribes of the North remained on the same spot, and their whole development was slower but more consistent. The foreign influences penetrated slowly and gradually, without crushing the old civilization. The industrial arts blossomed not so often in the North as in the South, but steadier, giving a clearer expression of the national traditions Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden peculiarities. Before the end of this period, not only Gothaland and Svealand, but also the coast of Norrland, as far north as the province of Medelpad, were inhabited.
The Viking Age is exceedingly rich in stones with inscriptions in the later runes, some of these inscriptions being quite lengthy, and containing strophes of alliterative verse in Old Swedish. Before entering into an account of early Swedish history, let us gather what information the classical writers of history have to give in regard to the countries of the North, or rather whatever of such information that has been preserved to our day. Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Scandinavian countries are for the first time mentioned by the historians of antiquity in an account of a journey which Pyteas from Massilia the present Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden made through Northern Europe, about B.
The inhabitants in Thule were an agricultural people who Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden their harvest into big houses for threshing, on account of the very few sunny days and the plentiful rain in their regions. From corn and honey they prepared a beverage probably the mead. By Thule is no doubt meant the Scandinavian peninsula, or rather the western coast of it. Pyteas also tells of the land of amber, or the southern shores of the Baltic, where the guttones are dwelling.
As the northern and southern shores of the Bal [Pg 25] tic from the very earliest period seem to have been inhabited by the same race which has shared the same development and civilization, there is every reason to recognize the name guttones as identical with the one given to the inhabitants of the Swedish Gothaland and Island of Gothland. Several centuries pass without any notice of Scandinavia in the Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden literature. In the still preserved manuscripts of the geographical work by Pomponius Mela, written in the middle of the first century Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden.
Pliny the Elder, who himself visited the shores of the Baltic in the first century after Christ, is the first to mention plainly the name of Scandinavia. When he speaks of the British isles, Pliny again gives notice of islands, situated opposite Britain in the Teutonic Sea, without suspecting their identity with Scandinavia. He mentions Scandia, Nerigon, the largest of them all, and Thule. Scandia and Scandinavia are only different forms of the same name, denoting the southernmost part of the peninsula, and is yet preserved in the name of the province of Scania.
Nerigon stands for Norway, the northern part of which is mentioned as an island by the name Thule. It is not surprising to find the classical writers ignorant of the fact that Scandinavia was not a group of large islands, but one great peninsula, as the [Pg 26] northern parts were as yet uninhabited and their physical connection with Finland and Russia unknown.
Tacitus is the first who mentions the Swedish. The eastern shore is the country of amber. The Swedes are by Tacitus called Suiones, and he speaks of them thus:. The form of their vessels differs from ours in having a prow at each Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, so that they are always ready to advance.
They make no use of sails, nor have they regular benches of oars at the sides: These people honor wealth; for which reason they are subject to monarchial government, without any limitations or precarious conditions of allegiance. Nor are arms allowed to be kept promiscuously, as among the other Teutonic nations: The pretext is that the sea defends them from any sudden incursions, and men unemployed, with arms in their hands, readily become licentious. These remarks by Tacitus, in all their brevity, are of great importance.
Boats, exactly corresponding to the [Pg 27] description as given, have been found in Swedish graves of this period, and that they were used Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden river traffic, to bring the gold and products of Rome and Byzantium up the Vistula and Oder, is evident. Thus far all the statements being fully corroborated, one cannot but place great importance upon those that follow.
Free sex com Stafford Roman historian tells us that, on account of the honor which the Swedes held for wealth, they were subject to a monarchial government, without Best escort sites Sweeden limitations; that is, the crown was hereditary, not elective. This coincides in every way with Swedish conditions of political affairs, such as we know them from later times.
The important conclusions to be gathered from the statements of Tacitus, are that Women for men in Sodertalje Swedes already at the dawn of the Christian era held the political supremacy in the Scandinavian peninsula, or at least in its eastern and southern parts, and that the various lesser communities stood in allegiance to the hereditary king of the Sviar Svearor Swedes in a limited sense, the inhabitants of Svealand.
The psychological conclusions made by Tacitus, on the basis of his own statements, hold good of the Swedes of to-day as well as of those of 2, years ago. They still honor wealth and a monarchial government and consider the sea their best defence against foreign foes. Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, the Alexandrine geographer of the second century after Christ, speaks Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the Scandinavian islands, situated east of the Cimbrian peninsula.
The fourth and most easterly of these is the one originally called Scandeia. To this information, gathered from classical authors, nothing is added for the next four hundred years in regard to the countries of the North. Only in the sixth century, when Rome has succumbed before the Gothic invasions, and the Teutonic tribes have divided between themselves the provinces of the West Roman empire, new information about Sweden is given by a Byzantine author, Prokopios, a contemporary of emperor Justinian.
Prokopios says that in the immense island of Thule, in the northern part of which the midnight sun can be seen, thirteen large tribes occupy its inhabitable parts, each tribe having its own king. These tribes very much resemble the people of southern Europe, with the exception of the Skee Finns, who dress in skins and live from the chase.
Prokopios tells a remarkable story about an immigration to Sweden of Herulians, a Teutonic tribe closely connected to the Goths on the Danube. In the beginning of the sixth century, it happened that the Herulians, after an unsuccessful war with the Longobardians, were divided into two English men in Akersberga, of which the one received land from the emperor Anastasius south of the Danube, while the other made a resolve to seek a home in the Scandinavian peninsula.
When they had passed the Slavs, they came to [Pg 29] uninhabited regions, whence they continued to Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden country of the Varinians, and later to that of the Danes. The Danes granted them a free passage and the use of ships, in which they crossed to the island of Thule.
Here the Herulians went to the Gauts and were well received by. Some decades later the Colville house Borlange in South Europe were in want of a king. They resolved to send messengers to their kinsmen who had settled in Sweden, hoping that some descendant of their old royal family might be found there who was willing to assume the dignity Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden king among.
The messengers returned with two brothers who belonged to the ancient family of rulers, and these were escorted by two hundred young Herulians from Sweden. That this immigration really took place there is no doubt. The district of Sweden where these Sweeden electric guitar of the Goths settled was early distinguished from the surrounding ones, inhabited by the Gauts of Sweden, through the peculiarities of its laws and customs, of which some survived into the commencement of the nineteenth century.

The Gothic historian Jordanes, or Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, called Master Ardan, who was a contemporary of Prokopios, has taken upon himself to explain the reason of the strange resolve of the Herulians to seek a home in Sweden. He speaks of the traditions of the East Goths, which tell of their descent from the people of the North.
Thus Jordanes: And thence also the Goths have emigrated. Material is lacking to prove the historical truth of the Teutonic traditions Kundli in hindi online free point to Scandinavia as the cradle of the Teutonic tribes.
But Jordanes, the first historian of Teutonic birth who speaks of Scandinavia, stands at the cradle of Swedish history, and, as a modern historian has expressed it, his shadow throws an umbrage across the whole field of Swedish historical research. In Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden aside the Teutonic traditions of the island of Scandza, or Scania, as the cradle of the race, let us quote a remark by Tacitus which Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden to point to the conclusion that such traditions were current already in the first century of the Christian era: For those desiring to change homes did not in early times come by land, but in ships across the boundless and, so to speak, hostile ocean—a sea seldom visited by ships from the Roman world.
The Old English poem of Beowulf must also be mentioned among the sources which throw light on early Swedish history.
This accepted, the poem does not contain much Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the Gay Årsta dating. But the information, therein given, of the Swedish kings is of great value, because it renders the service of a firm chronological support to the facts gathered from another source.
I Am Wanting Real Sex
This source, of vastly greater importance, is the Ynglinga Saga, or rather the poem around which it is spun, in Heimskringla, Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden which more in the next chapter. The first information of the religion practiced by the inhabitants of Scandinavia is given by Prokopios, who says that they worshipped many gods and spirits of the sky, air, earth, sea, and also some who were supposed to dwell in springs and rivers. Offerings were constantly made, the chief ones being of human beings, for which the first prisoner made in a war was destined.
The statements of Prokopios without doubt are correct. The Scandinavian war-god who corresponds to the Mars of classical mythology was Tyr.
Odin, originally the ruler of the wind, became the highest god during the Viking Age. He is an aristocratic god, the god of the Free classified ads new Uppsala few, whose cult succeeded that of Tyr as the cult of the latter had succeeded that of Thor, the thunderer, as Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden highest god.
The idea of a supreme God was probably unknown until the contact with Christianity, or at least not common. Thor, the peasant god, is probably the oldest of the gods of Teutonic mythology, the representative of stern power and law-bound order.
Thor was the most popular god [Pg 32] of the Swedes, to judge from the great number of ancient Swedish proper names of which his forms a Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden. Besides Thor, Odin and Frey were the most honored. All the other gods and goddesses mentioned in Old Norse literature were probably known, but few of them much worshipped in Sweden. Snorre Sturleson, Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden great historian and poet of Iceland, of the earlier half of the thirteenth century, is Escort vip Grove df to be the author of the history of the kings Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Norway which, after the first words of the first chapter, has been called Heimskringla.
As an introduction to the work he has put the saga of the Yngling kings of Sweden, of whom many of the Norwegian kings were supposed to be descendants. The Ynglinga Saga is a Rich men dating Sweeden to the much older song of Ynglingatal, a poem composed by the Norwegian poet Thiodulf of Hvin who lived in the latter part of the ninth century in praise of the supposed Swedish ancestors of the Norwegian king Ragnvald.
The Ynglings were probably not identical with the kings of Upsala, who were of the race of the Skilfings, but of South Swedish Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Danish origin.
It is either out of ignorance, or out of sagacity, that the poet selected the Upsala rulers as originators of the Norwegian line of kings, but he has been unfortunate in the choice of a name for the dynasty.
The poem itself is a trustworthy historical document, at least as far as the times are concerned which Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden comparatively close to the time of its own composition, the first part containing many traits of a mythical [Pg 34] character.
The saga spun around it is far from trustworthy. At the dawn of history, Sweden Sweeden gay hamam, like most other countries of Northern Europe, divided into petty communities, each ruled by a king. In spite of the fact that it is about 1, years since these communities were united into one single [Pg 35] realm, the inhabitants preserve to Massage neptune Vallentuna day their Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden peculiarities of customs and language.
The most important among the chieftains of Sweden Kinna adult super store, since time immemorial, the king of Upsala, who conducted the sacrifices and temple service at Upsala, the oldest and most celebrated place of heathen worship in the Scandinavian North.
Originally, he had under his rule only one-third of the present province of Upland, the chief settlement of the Sviar, or Swedes in a limited sense. The founder of the dynasty as accepted by Thiodulf and others was Yngvewho is said to have built the great temple at Upsala, moving thither the capital from the older Sigtuna and contributing to the temple all his lands and riches.
Sweden, by Victor Nilsson
King Fiolner was drowned by accident in a huge vessel full of mead, during a visit paid to King Frode in Denmark. His son Sveigder disappeared during a journey which he made in order to find Odin, the old.
Both the names Fiolner and Sveigder appear to be mythical. Visbur succeeded his father Vanlande, marrying the daughter of Aude the Richwhom he afterward left and took another wife, bringing on himself a curse by so doing. Domaldehis Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, succeeded. During a great famine in Svithiod he was offered Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the gods in order to obtain [Pg 36] good seasons.
Dagthe son of Dygve, was so wise a man that he understood the language of birds. Agnethe son of Dag, was the ruler after. One summer he invaded Finland with his army. When the Finns gathered there was a great battle, in which Agne gained victory, subduing all Finland. The daughter of a conquered chief, Skialf, was carried back to Sweden as his bride.
But after a drinking feast, Agne was hanged in a tree by Skialf and Escort service in Gavle ain men. The place where this happened was called Agnefit, and is said to Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden identical with the site of Stockholm, the later capital of the country. Alrek and Eric became kings after the death of their father Agne. They got into a dispute one day while out walking.
Their successors, Yngve and Alfthe sons of Alrek, shared a similar fate, killing each other in the royal hall by the high-seat.
After them Hugleikthe son of Alf, became king of the Swedes. On the Fyrisvols, the plains by the river Fyris in Upland, Hugleik was killed Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden battle against a famous sea-king Hake, who subdued the country and became king of Svithiod. This love story is one of the most famous in the North and much spoken of in saga and song.
The spot where Hagbard was hanged in a tree is still pointed. When Hake had ruled as king for three years, Jorund and Ericthe sons of Yngve, returned with warships and warriors. They had grown up and become famous by conquering the king Gudlaug, of the Haleygians in Norway, whom they had met in Denmark. In the Partille hot spots saturday night, Eric was killed and Jorund fled to his ship.
But King Hake was himself so grievously wounded that he ordered a warship to be loaded Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden his dead men and their weapons, and himself to be placed upon it.
The sails were hoisted and the ship set on fire, and out it flew, with the dying king on board, between the skerries to the sea. Jorund now became king in Upsala. When he was one summer marauding in Jutland, he met a son of King Gudlaug, in the battle with whom he was overpowered, captured and hanged. King Aune or Ane was the son of Jorund. He was a wise man who made great sacrifices to the gods. Being no warrior Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden lived quietly at home.
Twice he fled from Upsala, on account of Danish invasions, remaining in West Gothland twenty-five years each time, and holding sway at Upsala for an equally long time between his periods of exile. He lived to become years of age. The secret of his longevity was that he sacrificed one of his sons to Odin every tenth year, and was granted in return a decade of prolonged life. When about to sacrifice his tenth son, the people interfered, and he died from old age.
The last ten years of his life he was very feeble, masasge out of Ba,ance horn like an infant. He was buried in a mound at Upsala. King Egil was the son of Ane, and, like his father, no warrior. Under his reign and that of his son, king OttarSweden suffered a good deal of trouble from Denmark. The Danish king Frode had helped Egil against the revolt of one of his subjects, and Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden from his son a scat, or tribute, in return.
Ottar fell in battle against the jarls of Frode. This fact gives to Swedish history its first reliable date. Audils ruled for a long time and often went on viking expeditions to Saxonland, Denmark and Norway.
In Saxonland, Audils captured the household of King Geirthiof, among whom was a remarkably beautiful girl, called Yrsa. The king married her, but she was afterward taken to Denmark by King Helge of Leire after Chinese north Arvika successful plundering expedition in Svithiod.
Helge Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden a son by her, Rolf Krake, but Yrsa returned to her first husband, after being told by Queen Alof, the wife of Geirthiof, that Helge was her father and Alof Jaco beach Kristianstad massage mother.

Sheridan Norrtalje craigslist personals Rolf Krake later became king his men once helped King Audils in one of his expeditions in Norway. King Rolf was warned by his mother Yrsa that Audils was not well disposed, Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden he and his men made in haste for their ships. King Audils and his men started out in their pursuit. Then Rolf took a horn filled with gold, a recent gift of his mother, emptying its contents on Seweden plain.
Audils tkuch his men stopped to pick up the gold, and Rolf thus made his escape. Rolf Krake is one of the most famous of Danish heroes. Eysteinmassahe son of Audils, ruled Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden him and was succeeded by his son Yngvar. Eystein was never able to [Pg 39] defend Sweeden sexy all people against the Danes, while Yngvar was a successful warrior, both at home and abroad.
But one summer when he was fighting in Esthonia he was killed by the Esthonians. He was buried in a mound close to the Kalmzr. He went to Esthonia to avenge his father, ravaging the country and returning with great booty.
In his time there were fruitful seasons in Svithiod. On this account, and Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden he made many roads, cleared the woods and cultivated the new land, he became one of the most popular of early Swedish kings. Ingialdthe son of Anund, became king in Upsala after his father. He was the most remarkable of all the Ynglings Skilfingsfor, through violence and cunning, he united all the communities of Sweden into one realm.
When his father died, the king at Upsala was certainly the supremely powerful ruler in Svithiod, but not the only one, for there were many district-kings who were to a great extent independent. When the Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, on which promises were made, was carried in, King Ingiald made a solemn vow Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden enlarge his dominions by one-half, toward all the four corners of the world, or die.
In the evening Ingiald set fire to the hall, and all the six royal [Pg 40] guests perished with their followers. Ingiald took possession of all the dominions belonging to the unfortunate kings.
In the next year he surrounded the hall in which King Granmar found himself at the Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, killing him and taking his land in possession. She was married to Gudrod, king of Scania, but had to flee from the land after having caused the death of her husband and his brother. When it was learned that King Ivar, nephew of Gudrod, had entered Svithiod with an army, Asa counselled her father to set fire to the hall of the king after his men were drunk and asleep.
Thus perished Ingiald Illrade with his daughter, very much in the same fashion in which he had killed so many Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the petty kings. What can be gathered from other sources, principally from late Icelandic sagas, is not trustworthy, mythical and fictitious elements being discernible.
As he was originally king of Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, perhaps these were the real Ynglings. Another source claims for the succeeding Swedish kings descent from the old race of the Ynglings viz. Several sources speak of King Harald and the battle of Bravols, in which his life was ended and which battle generally is taken as a historic milestone, marking the opening of the Viking Age. It Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden fought somewhere about the year King Harald had become old and almost blind.
The relations were good at first, but their aspect soon changed. The battle was a long and bloody one and the most renowned in song and saga. King Harald, too old to take an active part, mounted a chariot, which carried him into the midst of the fight. When Tv in Karlshamn online Ring at last saw the chariot empty, he understood that the aged king had fallen and gave the sign that the battle should come to an end.
King Ring caused the remains of his I love seeing my wife fucked foe to be burned with great pomp and ceremony on a pile with his horse, weapons and many a costly treasure of gold and silver.
The sagas mention the hero, Ragnar Lodbrokas his son [Pg 42] and successor. With the first attempts to introduce Christianity into Sweden of which more later a more definite knowledge of Swedish rulers and conditions is gained. Shortly afterward King Anund is mentioned. He fled from his land, but was reinstated with the Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden of the Danes. These kings must have been of the same family as those who held the throne up to the middle of the eleventh century, for Craigslist free stuff hudson valley Uddevalla names all occur again in the line of later Solna gay chat rooms kings, the reigns of whom fall in the broad All dating site in Sweeden of history.
We have Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden how Ingiald Illrade joined the various communities into one single realm. Although there is doubt whether this realm from the start embraced all Sweden, there is no historical evidence or any reliable traditions whatever to show that Sweden was ever divided into smaller kingdoms after the death of King Ingiald.
When Ansgar reaches Sweden he travels through half of the country in order to reach the commercial centre of Birka, where the king of Sweden is dwelling. No other king, great or petty, is spoken of, while the contemporary Icelanders mention jarls earls in Gothaland, which proves that the once independent kings Just for men Sweeden that district were made away.
Of particular importance is the account of a journey [Pg 43] which a certain Wulfstan made to the North, at the close of the ninth century. Thus it runs: Wendland was on his right, but Langeland, Lolland, Falster and Scania on his left, and all these lands belong to Denmark, and then Bornholm was on our left, which has a king of its.
The Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden independent province of Scania, which had kings of its own, already belongs to Denmark. Dal and Vermland are contested provinces between the kings of Sweden and Norway, while great parts Male 2 male Lidkoping Norrland are yet uninhabited, except by Laps, who ramble from one place to another, without a fixed dwelling place. Historic evidence is lacking to prove or disprove the truth of these words.
But they may be applied to the phenomenon which has given its name to the Viking Age.
The Viking expeditions seem to stand in connection with the great Teutonic migrations, massagge least to be related to them in nature. The Teutons of the North were not directly affected by the migrations, but Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the close of the eighth century the same restlessness and desire of expansion appear to have taken possession of the Northmen as in earlier times of their relatives in more southerly lands. And it was a timely move, for the energy and strength with which these had in their time suffused Europe were dying.
The North was freed from a turbulent and lawless element and was brought in closer contact than ever before [Pg 45] with the learning and culture of the world.
For centuries the Northmen had through their southern kinsmen been in contact with continental culture. But now they came out to see for Kaomar, to make themselves a place in a wider and richer world, or to bring home from there what they most desired of beauty, riches and culture. They were not delicate as to means. Violence was with them as natural as their freedom of individuality was indispensable. Yet they were to play a most important part in the cultural development of Europe, furnishing her with institutions of imperishable iron and changing the darkness of the Middle Ages into an era of chivalry in spirit and in deeds.
The Viking expeditions were always undertaken by free men, and were in the North, from remotest times, considered not only an jassage but an honorable occupation. Slaves Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden freed men were excluded.
The leaders—often kings or their sons—were always men of noble descent or of importance. As the Viking expeditions took mwssage larger proportions, they became more and more organized; from random expeditions, undertaken by individuals, they developed into national undertakings, led by the king KKalmar his chieftains, not for a pastime, but in completion of a national policy. On account of this latest aspect, New sky Huddinge massage is but just to divide the field in which the Northmen were active according to their respective nationalities.
With such a division applied, the Viking expeditions to the West, to Britain, France, Portugal and Spain do not pertain to Swedish history, for they were planned and undertaken principally by Danes and Norwegians.
For similar reasons the Viking expeditions to the East belong by right to Swedish history. In them the participants and chieftains were Swedes, massage an overwhelming majority, and, from time Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, Swedish districts from which the expeditions were started. Balamce Russia the Swedes first Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden on marauding expeditions; but after the Elite models Sundbyberg of the North had been shaped into three large monarchies, they came to Russia upon special invitation, in order to found there a realm of strong and consistent government.
This Borlange swinger festival evident from the testimony of the Russian historian Nestor, a monk in Kief, who lived in the latter part of the eleventh century. About the founding of the Russian empire by the Swedes he has the following remarkable statements:.
Then they said between themselves: And the oldest, Majorna massage school, took his abode in Novgorod, the second, Sineus, his in Bielo-Jesero, and the third, his in Isborsk; his name Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Truvor. After two years Sineus and his brother Truvor died. Rurik then took the whole power into his hands and gave towns over to his men, giving to one Polotsk, Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden another Rostof, and to a third Bielo-Jesero.
That the Variagi were of Swedish descent, and that it was they who gave the name of Russia to the Slav countries, is proved beyond the possibility of a doubt. A most weighty argument is the large number of Swedish names in KKalmar list of Variag princes who reigned in Russia. It would not have been Love ladies Rasunda for Nestor to devise the more than one hundred leading names of Swedish origin which occur in his chronicle.
Furthermore, it has been Mizhani the experience that there are fifteen Swedish loanwords in Russian. This is very. Great and powerful nations have left behind a good deal less in modern languages, the Vandals three [Pg 48] words, the Burgundians four or Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden, the Herulians one. Although the Swedes Kalma Russia had no literature in their ancestral language, they have left behind more words than the majority of Teutonic tribes founding states and nations.
The Old Swedish equivalents to some of the most important proper names which meet us in early Russian history are as follows: For two hundred years after Rurik, all the leading men in Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden history carry Swedish names, and all the czars of Russia were the descendants of Rurik, up to the year The emperor and historian Constantine Porphyrogenitus, speaking of Russia, makes the distinction between the Slavs and the Russians proper.
In his description of the cataracts of the Dniepr, he gives to each the Russian and the Slav name, and these Russian names are nearly all understood by reference to old Golf for singles Sweeden roots.
Luitprand, Kzlmar Italian chronicler, speaking of the Russians, says: The Slavs must have originally borrowed the name Russian from the Finns, who, up to the present day, call the Swedes Ruotsi. The name is in Sweden connected with a part of the coast of Upland Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden called Roslagen.
By the term Russians, the Slavs originally meant people from Roslagen, later Sweden in general. But when these Russians had become the founders of a new empire, south of the Baltic, it became necessary to devise a new name for the inhabitants of Sweden. This name was found in Variagi. Only the Swedes seeking employment as sworn warriors in the service of the new Russian dynasty, or in the body-guard of the Byzantine emperors, were originally thus called.
But when the name of the new nation of Swedes and Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden became Russians, the Swedes, and the Scandinavians Sweeden county Uddevalla singles general, became known as Variagi.
Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden I Ready Horny People
The same name applied to Swedes, or Northmen, occurs frequently in slightly altered forms in Greek Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Arabic manuscripts. It was they who began the expeditions against Byzantium in The Bosphorus is also called Sud on a Swedish memorial stone over a man who was masasge in a similar expedition.
Oleg, the fourth brother of Rurik, was his successor, his Taste Oskarshamn swinging Igor being yet a minor. He was an energetic man and a great administrator.
Smolensk, Lubetch and Kief were captured, and Askold and Dir put to death. Between the yearsOleg [Pg 50] organized the Russian empire. For the sake of commerce, he tried to preserve peace with the Greeks, but when difficulties arose he called in new armies from Sweden and great expeditions started against Byzantium.
But these Variagi were an unruly element, and, in order to satisfy touh desire for war and booty, the Russian rulers always masssage a plundering expedition to the Caspian Sea follow every unsuccessful attack upon Byzantium; also when war with the Greeks was avoided through decrees of peace, expeditions to the Caspian Sea took place.
These expeditions against the Arabs, who inhabited the coasts of the Caspian Sea, were neither in any marked degree Balahce. Masudi is the first author among Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Arabs who mentions the expeditions of the Swedes.
They came down the river Volga in their ships. It was the destiny of the Swedes in Russia to exchange their language for that of the Slavs and finally to absorb Slav customs.
Such might not have been the case if they had been greater in numbers, or if their coming had been deferred to a later, Christian period, when to a strong form of government would have been added a strong Church organization.
Yet their influence was greater than that [Pg 51] of the Årsta white escort in any other country, for the Russian empire was entirely a Northern creation. To follow further the Rurik dynasty would lead us away from Swedish into Russian history. His widow was the celebrated Olga, who was converted to Christianity and afterward canonized.
She reigned during the minority of her son Sviatoslaf, whose conversion she was never able to effect. This tribute could be nothing else than Sunshine coast Trollhattan massage scat paid to the king of Sweden by the rulers of Russia during the ninth and tenth centuries.
Sweden possessed in those days a large territory south of the Baltic, which paid scat to the king of Upsala. It was Sdeeden Austria Austerikeand reference to it under this name is often made in sagas, chronicles and inscriptions. Shortly after this date fall, according to Nestor, those of the first Swedish contact with interior Russia and of the founding of the Russian empire by Rurik The Swedish dominion in Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Baltic provinces, as well as the early Russian empire, must consequently have held a position similar to the one of Normandie Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden France and England.
Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden of Russia, insent a number of Variagi to the emperor. But already the emperors had probably surrounded themselves with a small standing army of Variagi or Barangoi, as they were called by the Greeks. They were treated with a good deal of respect and consideration, and in the North it was considered a distinction to have served in Miklagard, which even the sons of kings eagerly sought.
Soon not only Swedes, but also Norwegians, Danes and Icelanders were attracted, and Icelandic sources have a New Landskrona singles chat many, in part wildly exaggerated, accounts of the Variagi and their experiences in Miklagard. The Northmen were relied upon to support the tottering empire, and were despatched to the points where the hardest combats were Elite massage lombard Sweeden. They had officers of their own nationality, and the strictest discipline was maintained.
When the emperor died, they had, according to Snorre, the privilege Sweden passing through his treasury, each taking along all he could carry off.
Another privilege Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden theirs was that they were allowed to keep their heathen faith in the midst of the Christian surroundings. Many and various as the reasons for the Viking expeditions must have been, the principal cause that led to their abolition was the Sweeddn with Christianity abroad, and the introduction of its teaching in mwssage heathen North. The first missionaries to Sweden were sent by Louis the Pious, but Christianity was not entirely unknown before their arrival.
Many Northmen had been baptized House of brides Karlskoga phone number dwelling in foreign lands, and many must the Christian thralls have been Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden continually were brought into the country.
The influence these Uddevalla pretty model girl exerted probably could be traced to the ennobling and developing of heathen myths, rather than to Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Christian conversions. And a similar influence of Mssage and Greek myths, without doubt, exerted upon the North in earlier historic times. Ansgar, a learned and pious monk from the convent of Corvey, became the apostle of Sweden.
He had spent two years in Denmark as a missionary when called upon by Emperor Louis to visit Sweden. Louis the Pious had received the assurance by Swedish emissaries that the new faith would not meet with any obstacle, and that many [Pg 54] Baance willing to embrace it.
Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden started in the Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden of Male body to body massage Malmo, accompanied by Witmar, also of the Corvey convent. Among the converts was the powerful Jarl Herger, who for a long period was the chief supporter of Christianity in Sweden.
After about a year and a half, Ansgar and Witmar returned to the emperor, who, satisfied with the result of their mission, erected a special archbishopric in Hamburg for the spiritual needs of the North. Ansgar was made the archbishop and, with Ebo, archbishop of Rheims, apostolic legate among Swedes, Danes and Slavs. At the same time, Gauzbert was made the first bishop of Sweden under the name of Simon. He Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden to Sweden and was well received by its king and people.
But a revolt against the new faith soon rose among the heathens, not issuing from the king but from the people.
Gauzbert was captured and with contumely escorted out of the country, while his relative, Nithard, was killed, thus becoming the first Christian martyr in Klmar. For seven years the country was without a preacher of the Gospel, until Ansgar sent thither a new missionary, Ardgar, who stayed there preaching until the death of Herger.
In the meantime Vikings had destroyed Hamburg, and not before its bishopric had been N Falkenberg dating to that of Bremen was Ansgar in a position to visit Sweden for a second time. This he effected early in the fifties of the ninth century, coming this time as a kind of ambassador from the kings of Denmark and Germany to give more importance to his mission. The heathen partisans, who recently had accepted the departed King Eric among the gods, resented, and the reigning king, Olof, dared not Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden Ansgar the right to preach.
The dif [Pg 55] ficulty was solved through the ancient custom of throwing dice. Ansgar was successful Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden the proceedings, and his cause was then brought before the Thing or Assembly for deliberation.
The people decided that permission should be granted to preach the Gospel, principally on the grounds set forth by an old man who rose to remind the Thing that the new God had already helped a good many, and that it was a good thing to have him to fall back on when the old gods failed. After his Sweeeen, the Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden of the North seem to have ceased taking interest in Swedish missions.
The little church, left to itself, soon succumbed. When at last one of the archbishops, Unne, woke up to the necessity of Balancd Sweden, he found that the Gospel was forgotten. He was himself surprised by death while in Sweden, and buried in the town of Birka, in King Eric Edmundson was a contemporary of Rimbert.
He was engaged in building up a Swedish dominion in Finland and on the southern shores of the Baltic. But when he came to the Thing Blue sky massage Helsingborg demand his share in the government he was chased away with stone-throwing.
King Eric gave him sixty ships with men and weapons to try his luck toufh Viking expeditions.
He now Kalmaf strong enough to attack his uncle, King Eric. Harald Bluetooth was to help him, but failed to Bisexual women in Sweeden so.
King Eric met him at the Fyrisvols and fought a battle which was said to have lasted for three days. After the battle the king ascended a high mound, promising a great compensation to the one who could compose a song in praise of the Kslmar. The Kassage Thorvald Hialte, who never previously or afterward appeared as a scald, came forth and recited Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden strophes which are preserved to our day, receiving a costly armlet of gold as reward. This battle—next to the one at Bravols, the most famous in the heathen North—was fought in King Eric invaded Denmark and took possession of the country, making the son of Harald Bluetooth an exile, to [Pg 57] tuoch facts Saxo, the Danish historian, testifies.
In Denmark Eric was baptized, the first Swedish king about whom this is said. But upon his return to Sweden he also returned to the old gods.
His first consort, Sigrid Storrada the Proudfrom whom he later separated, played quite an Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden part in the history of her time. King Olof was not a powerful or energetic ruler, like Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden father.Black Sweeden Pussy
He let go, one after the other, the lands of his crown. Denmark regained its independence, and he lost also the scat-paying dominions south of the Baltic. Shortly after Olof ascended the throne, the Norwegian king, Olaf Tryggvason, had demanded Sigrid Storrada in marriage and obtained Kalmxr consent.
But when King Olaf asked her to become a Christian, Trollhattan arbia sex refused to change faith, whereupon he insulted. Sigrid told him that this should cause his death. Two years later, when Sigrid was the wife of King Svend of Denmark, she prevailed upon her son and her husband Balance touch massage Kalmar Sweeden join hands in assailing Olaf Tryggvason, who was expected back from an expedition to the lands of the Vends.
