Samsey, or Samso,[1] is an island near Uppsala where the berserker Angantyr fought Hjalmar the Fearless after he claimed the king's daughter Ingeborg's hand in marriage.[2]

A great barrow was made there to bury Angantyr and his brothers, surrounded by eternal flames. The cursed sword Tyrfing was buried with them.
