what does he have to do with the seigneurs of Sark. Also, was he the first president? Danny

Unreferenced comment about his son[edit]

I've moved the following from the article space:

"His son served in the German army as a part of Schutzstaffel in WW2."

Please provide a reference before inserting this again. Thanks. Valentinian (talk) 20:40, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

If somebody digs up a source for this with accurate details, do you think it is interesting enough to mention? Stefán Ingi 21:52, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
This [1] is a good source although biased presumably, it's the biography of Björn. Of course it is in Icelandic and somebody would have to read it... The author has a blog if anybody is interested. :) Stefán Ingi 00:11, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
Here [2] is a bit of a summary of his involvement, towards the bottom of the page (in Icelandic of course). It is focused on his involvement in broadcasting German news to Iceland. It ends with the paragraph "Frá höfuðstöðvum SS í Berlín barst nú skipun um að Björn Sv. Björnsson skyli taka þátt í undirbúningsnámskeiði fyrir germönsk SS-foringjaefni í Bad Tölz í Þýskalandi frá 1. október til 15. desember 1942." From the Headquarters of SS in Berlin there came the order that Björn should take part in a preparation course for germanic SS-leader-candidates (very rough translation here :)) in Bad Tölz in Germany from October 1 to October 15 1942.

[dubious — discuss][edit]

Wasn't he president from 17 June, rather than July? Monarchy was abolished in June. The 17th of June. MrGulli (talk) 19:04, 23 January 2010 (UTC) You are right, it was june... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:54, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

"Sveinn" or "Björnsson"?[edit]

What should this man be called? The hatnote proclaims that he should be called Sveinn, but his son and grandson use Björnsson as a family name. So should he be Sveinn (the Icelandic way) or Björnsson (the current article's way)? What do Icelandic sources call him? What do English sources call him? Does WP:ICELAND have a standard for this kind of thing? (talk) 19:29, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Proposed merge from election articles[edit]

I propose merging the following articles into this article:

They are one-sentence stubs which are unlikely to be expanded, and there seems to be no point to their existence. The information they contain belongs here. Richard75 (talk) 16:44, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
