Saga is a cognate of the English word say : its various meanings in Icelandic are approximately equivalent to "something said" or "a narrative in prose", along the lines of a "story", "tale" or "history". Through the centuries, the word saga has gained a broader meaning in Nordic languages. In contemporary Swedish and Danish it describes a non-realistic or epic work of fiction.

Folksaga means folk tale ; a fairy tale by an unknown author, in Swedish and Danish. Konstsaga is the Swedish term for a fairy tale by a known author, such as Hans Christian Andersen or Astrid Lindgren , while the Danish and Norwegian term is kunsteventyr "adventure". Saga can also be a work of fantasy fiction. The translation was titled Ringarnas herre , a literal translation from the original.

In Swedish history, the term sagokung , "saga king", is intended to be ambiguous, as it describes the semi-legendary kings of Sweden , who are known only from unreliable, probably fictional, sources. In addition to saga, it also covers terms such as history , tale , story. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
