King Hrolf Kraki has as Jesse Byock said : " An illustrious pedigree ". His father was Helgi who had several sexual liasons with such women as, Queen Olof of Saxland, Yrsa ( Hrolf's mother), and even an Elfin woman with which he had a daughter named Skuld. ( That alone will make some want to read the story ). Halfdan was his grandfather, and his whole line descended from an unnamed king from Denmark.
The saga itself is absolutely wonderful, containing magic, sorcery, men with bear like natures, ( like Beowulf ). A sword embedded in stone that only the rightful owner can remove, ( sound familiar ), and even the All - Father Odin makes an appearance as a farmer to test Hrolf Kraki's men. And Hrolf Kraki's men are fabulous ! Like the story of the Volsungs it contains love, deceit, treachery, and murder. What else could you possibly ask for !
So come join me for a saga that I feel is every bit as good as King Arthur, The Volsungs, or even the epic of all epics, Beowulf. Coming soon to this blog !!!
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love, and Thor's protection !
