The legendary Kungstorn is a huge eagle said to be found in the north of Europe. One is supposed to have carried off three-year old Svanhild Hansen in 1932 in Norway. However, it did not do her any harm and put her down again. She was carried 1.2 miles and deposited on a mountain called Hagafjell. This has led to the Kungstorn sometimes being referred to as "Svanhild's bird".
According to the lore of this bird in Norway and Sweden, it can lift up a reindeer calf.
