Begivenheder i hans liv:
• Erhverv. 1 konge i Sverige - Inge shared the rule of the kingdom with his probably elder brother Halsten Stenkilsson, but little is known with certainty of Inge's reign. In a letter of 1080 to Inge from Pope Gregory VII he is called 'king of the Swedes', but in a later letter probably dated to 1091, to Inge and his brother Halsten, they are called kings of the West Geats. Whether this difference reflects a change in territory is not certain since the two letters concern the spreading of Christianity in Sweden and the paying of tithes to the pope
