Sigurd Hring (Old Norse: Sigurðr hringr (Hringr meaning 'Ring')) (fl.ca 750) was a legendary Danish and Swedish king mentioned in many old Scandinavian sagas. According to Bósa saga ok Herrauds, there was once a saga on Sigurd Hring, but this saga is now lost. In the old sources, he is notable for winning the Battle of the Brávellir against Harald Wartooth and for being the father of Ragnar Lodbrok.
