Domar Domaldasson King in Sweden [Mythological] 1 2
- Marriage (1): Drott Danpsdotter [Mythological]
Mythological Swedish king, of the House of Ynglings.
From Wikipedia - Domar :
In Norse mythology , the Swedish king Domar of the House of Ynglings was the son of Domalde . He was married to Drott , the sister of Dan the Arrogant who gave his names to the Danes. Drott and Dan are in this work said to be the children of Danp son of Ríg .
His rule lasted long and after the sacrifice of his father Domalde , the crops were plentiful and peace reigned. Consequently there is not much to tell about his reign, and when he died at Uppsala , he was transported over the Fyris Wolds (Fyrisvellir ) and burnt on the banks of the river, where a stone was raised over his ashes.
He was succeeded by his son Dyggvi .
Snorri Sturluson wrote of Domar in his Ynglinga saga (1225):
Domald's son, called Domar, next ruled over the land. He reigned long, and in his days were good seasons and peace. Nothing is told of him but that he died in his bed in Upsal , and was transported to the Fyrisvold , where his body was burned on the river bank, and where his standing stone still remains.
The information about Domar's marriage appears after Snorri has presented Domar's son Dyggvi (Danish tongue refers to the Old Norse language as a whole and not only to the dialect of Denmark):
Dygve's mother was Drott , a daughter of King Danp, the son of Rig , who was first called "king" in the Danish tongue. His descendants always afterwards considered the title of king the title of highest dignity. Dygve was the first of his family to be called king, for his predecessors had been called "Drottnar", and their wives "Drottningar", and their court "Drott". Each of their race was called Yngve, or Yngune, and the whole race together Ynglinger. The Queen Drott was a sister of King Dan Mikillati , from whom Denmark a took its name.
The Historia Norwegiæ presents a Latin summary of Ynglingatal, older than Snorri's quotation:
Domalde begot Domar, who died in Sweden. Likewise Dyggve, his son, [...] The even earlier source Íslendingabók cites the line of descent in Ynglingatal and also gives Dómarr as the successor of Dómaldr and the predecessor of Dyggvi : viii Dómaldr. ix Dómarr. x Dyggvi.
Domar married Drott Danpsdotter [Mythological], daughter of Danp Rigsson [Mythological] and Unknown. (Drott Danpsdotter [Mythological] was born in (Sweden).)
