The Ynglings were a Scandinavian dynasty descended from the Norse God Freyr. Although early Yngling Kings were likely mythological, later kings of the line may have actually ruled parts of Sweden and, later, Norway. One early text that references the Ynglings is the Old English Poem , Beowulf, written as early as 800BCE.
