About Anders Underdal

Far til Margit Sandemo påstås å være uekte sønn av Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson.

Dette er ikke bevist, selv om en av Bjørnsons etterkommere har akseptert forbindelsen som mulig.

Farskapsrelasjonen skal ha eksistert som ett blant flere liknende rykter knyttet til Bjørnsons påståtte utenomekteskapelige forhold men ble fremsatt som en påstand av Margit Sandemo 1. desember 1984 i avisa Avisa Valdres og betegnet som «en lenge bevart familiehemmelighet», og hun har også senere gjentatt påstanden. I boka "Bjørnsons kvinner og Margit Sandemos ‘familiehemmelighet’" (Genesis forlag, Oslo 1999) konkluderer forfatteren Audun Thorsen, blant annet på bakgrunn av samtaler med Underdal, som han var en nær venn av, at påstanden må anses motbevist.

Margit Sandemo was born 23 April 1924 in a farm in Lena, Østre Toten, Valdres, Norway. Her father was a Norwegian poet, Anders Underdal, who was born in Valdres in 1880, and died in 1973. Underdal was born outside of marriage, after an affair between the Nobel-prize winning Norwegian author Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson (1832–1910) and a 17-year-old croft girl named Guri Andersdotter (d. 1949). Audun Thorsen has repudiated the rumour in a book called Bjørnsons kvinne og Margit Sandemos "familiehemmelighet" (in English: "Bjørnson's Woman and the "Family Secret" of Margit Sandemo") (Genesis forlag, Oslo 1999.), which the author herself hasn't read, because she thinks that it would be too great of a shock for her.

During her childhood it was thought that the unmarried affair to Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson must be kept secret. Even Anders Underdal, who early on gave an account of his origin to his children, fell silent about that matter later in life. Nobody knows why. Sandemo herself doesn't like talking about her ancestry in public.[2]
