Without mentioning my last name, My family is a sept of Clan Gunn of Scotland. The father of the clan, Gunni was the grandson of Sweyn Asliefsson (My namesake and the ultimate Viking of the orkneyinga saga). Meaning I am a direct descendant. If you google Sweyn Asleifsons family tree and take it on back...You will notice that Ragnar Lodbrook Sigurdsson is a direct ancestor. You can trace that line all the way back to the 4th century.
Does anyone know what saga tells the story of Ragnar or his father - Sigurd?

I like this translation:

This link will download a pdf of the saga, it is a safe link.


*Edited to better format link
