Biography

Matthew Townend 2012, ‘(Biography of) Sveinn tjúguskegg Haraldsson’ in Diana Whaley (ed.), Poetry from the Kings’ Sagas 1: From Mythical Times to c. 1035. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 1. Turnhout: Brepols, p. 378.

On the Danish king Sveinn (Svtjúg, r. 986-1014), who also reigned in England 1013-14, see ‘Ruler biographies’ in Introduction to this volume. As noted below, the sole stanza attributed to him is of doubtful authenticity.
