Traditional Districts of the Jarldom of Frigga Island

Recommended Posts

Beloved Patricians and Friends,

 

After doing some research in some private archives I have found a couple of names for Traditional Districts of Frigga Island.

 

The names are:

  • Kryvingar;
  • Alsinterga;
  • Thaneka.

Where do these names come from and what do they mean?

 

Do you remember the State Committee on Geography and Place Names also known as the Geocom. That is where I found those names. A member of the Geocom, Sir Gudhsten Patreksson, came up with them when he was working on Frigga Island, of which he was the Thane at the time. He had made a proposal in which Frigga Island was to be subdivided into three territorial Earldoms:

  • The Earldom of Kryvingar;
  • The Earldom of Alsinterga;
  • The Earldom of Thaneka.

The meaning of the names of those Earldoms is, very unfortunatly, lost to time.

Lady Valborg,

 

I'm most happy to provide you with the answer to your question. :)

 

The Traditional District of Kryvingar covers the western part of Frigga Island, and in this Traditional District the capital of Frigga Island, the Royal City of Fensalir, is situated.

 

The Traditional District of Alsinterga covers the eastern part of Frigga Island, and in this Traditional District is located the City of St. Lucy.

 

The Traditional District of Thaneka covers the southern part of Frigga Island, and in this Traditional District lies the City of Friggerock.

Lady Valborg,

 

The name of Friggjarstjarna that you have picked for the fishing village is very appropriate, and fits in perfectly with the names of other places on Frigga Island such as the City of Friggerock. Well done!! :)
