The Scandinavian ballads have the same bad habit as the English ballads in 
being named after lead characters which change regionally; hence the same 
song can have buckets of different titles.  I'm familiar with some of the 
Scandinavian forms (like "Medelwold and Sidselille" for "Leesome Brand"), 
but this title doesn't ring a bell.  Do you have any of the words or story, 
or did you just find a tune somewhere?
