b. 160 Finland
1st King of Kvenland
According to the "Orkneyinga Saga", "There was a king called Fornjotur who ruled over Finland and Kvenland, the countries stretching to the east of what we call the Gulf of Bothnia, which lies opposite the White Sea. Fornjotur had three sons, Hler (whom we call AEgir), a second called Logi and a third, Kari, the father of Frosti, who was in turn father of Snaer the Old, the father of Thorri. He has two sons, Nor and Gor and a daughter called Goi." This is the history of the Earls of Orkney and was written in the year 1200 by an unknown author. This page, along with www.kvenland.com, is a tribute to Fornjotur and his descendants and the Earls of Orkney, Kings of Kvenland and Halogaland.
