    • ! <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bj%C3%B6rn_(III)_Eriksson>Bj?rn (III) ErikssonBj?rn (ruled 882-932[1]) was the father of Olof (II) Bj?rnsson and Eric the Victorious, and he was the grandfather of Styrbj?rn the Strong, according to the Hervarar saga and Harald Fairhair's saga. According to the two sagas, he was the sonof an Erik who fought Harald Fairhair and who succeeded the brothers Bj?rn at Hauge and Anund Uppsale:King ?nund had a son called Eric, and he succeeded to the throne at Upsala after his father. He was a rich King. In his days Harold the Fair-haired made himself King of Norway. He was the first to unite the whole of that country under his sway. Eric at Upsala had a son called Bj?rn, who came to the throne after his father and ruled for a long time. The sons of Bj?rn, Eric the Victorious, and Olaf succeeded to the kingdom after their father. Olaf was the father of Styrbj?rn the Strong.(Hervarar saga)[2]The latter saga relates that he ruled for 50 years:There were disturbances also up in Gautland as long as King Eirik Eymundson lived; but he died when King Harald Harfager had been ten years king of all Norway. After Eirik, his son Bjorn was king of Svithjod for fifty years. He was father ofEirik the Victorious, and of Olaf the father of Styrbjorn. (Harald Fairhair's saga)[3]In Olaf the Holy's saga, Snorri Sturluson quotes Thorgny Lawspeaker on king Bj?rn:My father, again, was a long time with King Bjorn, and was wellacquainted with his ways and manners. In Bjorn's lifetime his kingdom stood in great power, and no kind of want was felt, and he was gay and sociable with his friends. (Saga of Olaf Haraldsson)[4]When Bj?rn died, Olof and Eric were elected tobe co-rulers of Sweden. However, Eric would disinherit his nephew Styrbj?rn.Adam of Bremen, however, only gives Emund Eriksson as the predecessor of Eric the Victorious. Since the Swedes seem to have had a system of co-rulership (Diarchy), itis probable that Emund Eriksson was a co-ruler of Bj?rn's.References and footnotes1. The article Bj?rn in Nordisk familjebok.2.
