Roi de Scanie

Guðröðr (Godred) was a legendary 7th century Scanian king who according to the Ynglinga saga was the brother of Halfdan the Valiant, Ivar Vidfamne's father.

The Ynglinga saga tells that Guðröðr married Åsa, the daughter of the Swedish king Ingjald Ill-ruler. She backtalked Halfdan so that Guðröðr killed him, and having done so, she arranged the death of Guðröðr himself. Then she fled back to her father in Sweden.

Guðröðr was succeeded by his nephew Ivar Vidfamne who avenged his father and uncle, and conquered Sweden and other countries.
