Grimfrost's Ásgautr is based on a sword found in the Rosenlund grave in Denmark. We like to think that it belonged to the probably esteemed Viking warrior Ásgautr Red-Shield who is mentioned on a runestone standing in the nearby church of Rønninge. It reads:

"Sōti satti stæin þannsi æft Æilæif, brōður sinn, sun Āsgauts Rauðumskialda"

(English: Sóti placed this stone in memory or Eileifr, his brother, Ásgautr Red-shield’s son”.)
