Rigny Bjerg was marked on Jules de Blosseville's map of 1833. His report also contained a drawing of the mountain's profile as seen from the sea. Based on the profile, its exact position has been established. Detailed investigations have shown that the mountain is probably identical to the Norsemen's Blåserk and to the Mount of Gods Mercie named by Henry Hudson in 1607.
