Haven

OK. There is a place called Haven in Denmark. See also image.

"...Hadding sat in the great hall near Haven that his grandfather had built."
-War of The Gods, p. 93.

"At his hall near Haven, King Skjold had let build a storehouse for his treasures." (p. 104)

"Folk at Haven...were holding a feast...when Hadding's son Frodi wedded Viborg, daughter of King Hunding in Svithjod." (p. 237)

(This marriage seals an alliance that had ended a feud.)

"The home of Gudorm Thorleifsson lay in northwestern Zealand, a day's ride from Haven." (p. 265)

Hadding's son-in-law, Gudorm, invites Hadding while plotting his assassination. Housecarles from Haven bear and believe the news that Hadding is dead. (p. 285)

"Folk swarmed to the [Yule] offerings in Haven." (p. 288)

There may be more on Haven from Hrolf Kraki.

  1. Kaor, Paul!

    This is totally UN-related, but there's also the planet Haven, which we see in the War World sub-series of Jerry Pournelle's Co-Dominium timeline. "The Deserter" was Poul Anderson's contribution to that series.
