Norse - A prince. Father of Sveinn. When he was denied the title of king, Yngvarr led a fleet of thirty ships to Russia to find the source of a large river, said by some to be the Dvina. After countless adventures involving demons, dragons and giants, he travelled to Heliopolis where the queen, Silkisif, offered to share her throne with him, an honour he rejected, preferring to continue his search. He eventually discovered the source of the river and set off for home but died en route. In later years, his son, Sveinn, followed his father's footsteps and married Silkisif. Also identified as Yngvarr.
