In Norse mythology, Ingvi is the son of Odin, father of the gods. Ingvi, Norse god if Kingship, is a divine ancestor of the legendary Scandinavian dynasty, from whom the earliest historical Norwegian kings claimed to be descended from. Many scholars believe that Ingvi and Freyr are the same god. Both are associated with kingship, virility and prosperity. Indeed, Freyr is sometimes referred to as Yngve-Freyr, and is frequently linked to Sweden where he is seen as an ancestor of the Swedish royal house. He rides the shining dwarf-made boar Gullinbursti, and carries a magic sword on which his life depends.
