Swedish Monarch. Living from approximately 400 to 430 A.D., he was a member of the Yngling Dynast, and ruled Swealand, or the central Swea Region part of Sweden which subsequently developed into that country by about 980 A. D. Also known as Atawulf (Swedish: Alf [Adolf], nicknamed Elfse), he was likely to have been Adolph I. Evidence exists that he did exist outside of the legends. Adolph was co-ruler with his brother Ingvi (Yngve) and was married to Queen Bera. The relationship between the brothers deteriorated because of her attentions and flirtations toward her brother-in-law. In a fit of rage, after repeated comments by Bera favoring Ingvi, Adolph pulled his sword out from under his cape and stuck it into his brother, who pulled his own sword and stabbed Adolph. Both brothers died on the spot and were buried in a tumulus which no longer exists, on the bank of the Fyris River, now in downtown Upsala. One such known grave has been called Thorsugle.
