--------------------

Aud the Deep-Minded (Old Norse: Auðr djúpúðga Ketilsdóttir; also known as Unn or Aud Ketilsdatter) (834-900 AD) was the second daughter of Ketil Flatnose and Yngvid Ketilsdóttir. She married Olaf the White King of Dublin. After Olaf's death, Aud's son Thorstein the Red embarked on a campaign of conquest in northern Scotland. When he was defeated and killed, the audacious Aud travelled the British Isles, marrying off her daughters to important landowners, until she finally settled near her brothers in Iceland, founding Hvammur í Skeggjadal (commonly translated as "Hvamm").

She figures in several Norse sagas, including Njal's Saga, Laxdaela saga, Saga of Eric the Red, and Grettis Saga.

Unlike most other Icelandic settlers Aud was a Christian and raised crosses on her land and prayed regularly on hills now called Krosshólaborg.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

--------------------

Aud figures in several Norse sagas, including; Landnámabók, Njal's Saga, Laxdaela Saga, Eyrbyggja Saga, Eiríks saga rauða and Grettis Saga.

Aud is a very important figure in Icelandic history because she was one of the first settlers and claimed a great deal of land. However, more importantly, is the fact that she did this and was a woman. Women, who did not have all the capabilities of men at the time, but Aud was a very important figure for her time, as her name would suggest, and she took control of her circumstances, and became one of the legendary settlers of Iceland. Unlike most other Icelandic settlers Aud was a baptized and devout Christian. Aud put up crosses on her land and prayed regularly at Krossholar hill, now known as Krosshólaborg. (iflg. Wikipedia)

--------------------

Efter Olafs fald, rejste hun til Skotlands-Kataness (?) til Thorsteinn,som var konge der. Da han faldt, rejste hun til Island 892 og boede i Hvammsfirdi.

--------------------

Unn (Aud) Kjetilsdtr. ble født omkring 835 og døde i 920. Da hennes far, Kjetil Flatnev bestemte seg for å emmigrere, fulgte hun ham til Hebridene og ble der gift med Olaf Kvite. Da han ble drept i 900, reiste hun til sin far på Hebridene, og senere fulgte hun sin sønn Torstein til Skottland. Sønnen hadde satt seg store mål., og da han mislyktes og ble drept, bodde hun i Caithness i Skottland. Hun visste at hun ikke hadde noen fremtid der, og fikk et skip bygget i hemmelighet. Da det ble ferdig, fikk hun brakt ombord sitt gods, og reiste til Island med sine slektninger og tjenere. Der ble hun tatt imot av sin bror, Bjørn, og gitt store landområder hvor hun bygget en gård, som ble kalt Hvamm. Hun var en stor personlighet, og spilte en viktig rolle i den senere islandske saga.
