Ongendus

                   

Ongendus (Angantyr in Danish) was a king of the Danes, reigning c. 710.

He's the first Danish king known from contemporary literature.

Contents

  Historical background

He was presumably king of a stronger and more unified Denmark that rose at the end of the 7th century, building Danevirke.

Ogendus' reign probably followed the rise of a strong kingdom in central Jutland which lasted from about 200 to 600 CE, and from 400 also included Kent and Isle of Wight.[1]

Given the time we must assume that Ongendus was involved with the construction of the Danevirke, as it was under construction at this time.

He may have founded Ribe,[2] and reinforced Danevirke in 737.[3]

  Literal knowledge

About 710, Saint Willibrord visited the Danes whilst Ongendus was ruling and returned with 30 boys to instruct in missionary work. No further details are given about Ongendus, other than that he was "more savage than any beast and harder than stone" — the ideal of man in the Viking Age. Against Willibrord's account, however, one should also consider that he was apparently well received, could travel in peace through Ongendus' realm and was allowed to return with his potential disciples, so the savagry of Ongendus may well be overstated. It may just have been the obligatory classification of any heathen ruler.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
