There is no reason to put this mound in any person-category. The Swedish article sv:Anundshög does not have any such categories either. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 20:11, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Every serious, professional historian has acknowledged the existence of the legend about a prehistoric king called Bröt-Anunnd in Swedish (English exonym: Anwynd the Breaker) and (note!) about his burial in this tumulus. The existence of the legend is also acknowledged in the Swedish Wikipedia article. SergeWoodzing (talk) 14:54, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
PS for clarity re: this whole issue, also see here. SergeWoodzing (talk) 14:55, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
There is no legend connecting Bröt-Anund to Anundshög. It is just an antiquarian invention from around 1700 by sv:Johan Peringskiöld, who made such unsubstantiated connections for many mounds. It only says something about the scholarship of the time. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 15:08, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
There is a very well-documented such legend, recounted in a vast amount of scholarly literature. I can't say for sure if it originated in 1700 or earlier, but even 400 years should be enough for a legend to be well established, and for the tumulus to be categorized accordingly.
