Original name:  Agne Skjalfarbonde
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Swedish Monarch. A member of the Yngling Dynasty, he ruled Swealand, or the central Swea Region part of Sweden which subsequently developed into that country by about 980 A. D. Living approximately 355 to 400 A.D., he was the first of a succession of kings of whom expertise has had the opinion that he did exist outside of the legends. He was assassinated by being hanged by Queen Skjalv, probably his consort, at an area called Agnefit, possibly located on the south shore of the current Old Town (City Island) of Stockholm. The queen had allegedly been kidnapped from Finland where Agni had gone on a mighty expedition against a powerful chieftain, her father. She had her men kill her husband, when he fell asleep drunk after celebrating his victory across the Baltic, by tying a rope to his regalia, a massive golden neck ring, and hoisting him up into a tree. (bio by: Count Demitz)
