Kung Bore. Winter King (King Winter, King Frost) is a late personification of winter and the north wind (sometimes even Christmas). It is a literary figure such as occurs in art tales and probably has no connection with Bure in Norse mythology, but has been associated with boreal. The name comes from the Latin borealis from the Greek Boreas which means north wind.
