Hundorp is a village in the Gudbrand Valley, Norway. The
administrative centre of Sør-Fron, Oppland,
Hundorp was also the
centre of the petty kingdom of the
Gudbrand Valley and as such
important in religion and politics. Dale-Gudbrand's farm, the farm
once populated by the ancient ruler Dale-Gudbrand, is the millennium
site of Oppland.
The Norse form of the name was Hundþorp. The first element is hundr
'great, rich, powerful', the last element is þorp 'farm'. The name is
probably reflecting the fact that this was the seat of a king.
