The naval Battle of Svolder (Svold, Swold) was fought in September 999 or 1000 somewhere in the western Baltic between King Olaf Tryggvason of Norway and an alliance of his enemies. The backdrop of the battle is the unification of Norway into a single state, long-standing Danish efforts to gain control of the country, and the spread of Christianity in Scandinavia. In later centuries, the saga descriptions of the battle, especially that in Snorri Sturluson's Heimskringla, have inspired a number of ballads and other works of literature.
Andreas Tegström (born 18 January 1979) is a Swedishfootballer most noted for his time in Norwegian Tippeligaen clubs Sandefjord and Fredrikstad where he played as a striker.

He was brought to Sandefjord in 2005 and scored 14 goals in his first season; the club won promotion to Tippeligaen. In Sandefjord's first season at the top-flight, Tegström scored ten goals in the league and played in the 2006 Norwegian Football Cup Final. The next season he moved to Fredrikstad, where he was not a regular on the first team. He spent time on loan with Hønefoss in 2009, and he returned to Sweden after the 2010 season when his contract with Fredrikstad expired. After two seasons with the Superettan side Jönköpings Södra, he rejoined Husqvarna FF ahead of the 2013 season.
