In Norse mythology, Fjölnir, Fjölner, Fjolner or Fjolne (Old Norse 'Fjǫlnir' - "Manifold" or "Multiplier") was a Swedish king of the House of Yngling, at Gamla Uppsala. Fjölnir appears in a semi-mythological context as the son of Freyr and his consort Gerðr. According to Grottasöngr, Fjölnir lived from the 1st century BC to the early 1st century AD.

Fjölnir drowned in a vat of mead visiting Peace-Fróði, an equally mythological king of Zealand, where Denmark later appeared. Fjölnir was then succeeded by his son Sveigðir.
