House of Yngling

The rulers and their spouses before year 800 should be considered fictional characters.

The sources for their existence are legends such as Ynglingasagan by Snorre Sturlasson, written early 13th century, and Beuwulf, an English heroic poem which oldest written source is from the year 1000. The Danish historian Saxo Grammaticus, wrote down Gesta danorum at the end of the 12th century and its value as a source has been questioned. The Ynglinga-queens are to be considered as fictional characters but they are a part of the cultural inheritance.

These are the spouses that are known by name.
