.The subject of this thesis is early Scandinavian kingship, and the analysis is based on a number of written sources and runic inscriptions. A study of early Germanic kingshipfocuses primarily on the development of Gothic kingship from the fourth to the sixthcentury. The royal attributes expressed in kennings and
heiti 
in
Ynglingatal 
are analysed,showing that the poem presents the development of kingship as a process in four stages.The dating of this work and its style of composition is also discussed. A study of thechapters in
Ynglinga saga
which deal with King Ingiald
illráði 
examines the role of coun-sel, the political structure of the Svear and high kingship as a structural problem.
Vita Anskarii 
is analysed with particular emphasis on the interaction between kings, noblemenand the ‘people’ in political decision-making. Finally, the associations between kingsand runes are discussed, and the inscription of the Sparlösa stone is reinterpreted as a monument over a royal succession.
