Poet

Ingolfr the Iambic was a Norwegian poet in the early 1400s. He wrote a verse about the game of Quidditch that showed how the game had spread to Europe.

"Oh, the thrill of the chase as I soar through the air
With the Snitch up ahead and the wind in my hair
As I draw ever closer, the crowd gives a shout
But then comes a Bludger and I am knocked out.
"
—Ingolfr the Iambic[src]

Etymology

  • The name Ingólfr, was derived from the name of the Germanic god Ing combined with úlfr meaning "wolf".
  • Iambic is likely a reference to iambic pentameter, a common poetry meter best known for its extensive use by William Shakespeare. Oddly, his only known poem is not an example of this type of meter.
