TVENNE DRÖMMAR (Two dreams)
Two Dreams is based on the saga “Om kong Götrik och hans son kong Rolof” (Hrólfs saga Gautrekssonar).
One night the queen of Uppsala, Ingerd, is dreaming that a mighty white bear was coming.
The bear she saw in her dream was in reality the warrior Rolf, who comes to propose to Ingerd and King Erik's daughter. Rolfs visit is received with derision and Rolf may himself go to Ullåker, where the daughter reigns. The proposal is not accepted with kind-heartedness and Rolf and his entourage is chased away by the daughter and her warriors.
Rolf seeks refuge in Scotland where he ties alliances and gains a reputation as a great warrior and later on Rolf travels back to Uppsala with a great army and friends. This time the queen dreams another dream; now of a great entourage with white ferocious bears and a wild boar and this time they are all but friendly.
