This is a Merge Project page.

Norwegian version

This project attempts to clean up the forest of duplicates and errors regarding Viking and Nordic Medieval ancestry. The project includes profiles from the earliest historical times in Scandinavia as well as mythical figures from this area. The main time period is from around 700 to 1350.

Central Profiles

Extent of Project and Cross-Over Profiles

The project touches the Anglo-Saxon Kings project, as well as the Legendary Danish Kings and we need to define cross-over profiles here. Our main time frame is between 700 and 1350, but some lines will go further back (with mythical literature as source) and others into later lines where the historical material is more extensive.

Gange-Hrolf ‘Rollo’ Rangvaldsson, Duc de Normandie

Naming Conventions

Main principles

  • Nordic names for Nordic people
  • Name as close to original name as possible, language, geography and time period to be taken into consideration
  • Titles usually go in the last name field
  • Patronymics together with first name to avoid misunderstandings or mistaken identity
  • All names a person is known by in any source listed in “nicknames”: bynames, titles, variations

Sources

Our main sources are the sagas, and Scottish and Irish historical records:

For answers we try to avoid private ancestry pages without historical sources, as these are often full of errors.

Notes

List of duplicate profiles

Beware of mixing the different lines even if people have similar names. Check parents, spouses, siblings and children, and sources before you merge. See list of direct ancestors of Harald Fairhair, including Halvdan Goldtooth, Solveig Halvdansdotter, Halvdan Olafsson Hvitbein and Eystein Halvdansson.
