The Kingdom of Skirnve was an Ejderic along the eastern coast of the Isle of Svøyen during the mid-11th to late 12th centuries. It filled the power vacuum during the interegnal period between the First and Second North Sea Empires. It was the first state on Svøyen to form a Christian dioceses at Astratarn under Angantyr the Victorious.

During the Greindrifa Skirnve was notable for its continued ties to the rest of the North Sea and was often involved in conflicts across the archipelago. Harald Rodriksen, the first king of Skirnve, desired a return to a unified political entity to govern interactions between the many Ejderic settlements which had been created by the North Sea Empire.

Skirnve was later subsumed by the Schwarzburgian Sotirian kingdom known as the Second North Sea Empire. Other parts of Svøyen and the North Sea were periodically controlled by Schwarzburg, but the pre-existing Sotirian population in Skirnve allowed them establish a permanent power base there.
