The Ynglingar (English: Ynglings) are the Swedish royal dynasty of the early Middle Ages. The first Norwegian king Haraldr hárfagri descended from them.

According to the poem Ynglingatal, the first king is Fjǫlnir, but the prose texts name three gods' names before this: Yngvi, Njǫrðr and Freyr (Islendingabók) or Óðinn, Njǫrðr and Yngvi-Freyr (Ynglingasaga). [1]
