Heimskringla is a collection of tales about Old Norse Norwegian kings, beginning with the Ynglinga dynasty, followed by accounts of historical Norwegian rulers from Harald Fairhair of the 800s up to the death of the pretender Eystein Meyla in 1177. Most of the content is from the sinister Viking Age. The exact sources of his work are disputed. It was written on Iceland ca. 1230, by Snorre Sturlason. Samuel Laing published an English translation in 1844, with a second edition in 1889. Here is all of it.
