About Cecilie Jensdatter Galen

King Valdemar I had one illegitimate child by Mistress (1):

6. NIELS Valdemarsen (-[1218/19]). The Annales Ryenses name "Nicolao filio illegitimo [Waldemari Regis]" specifying that his father granted him "comitatum Hallandiæ"[586]. Count of Halland 1218. "Gozelino et Henrico fratribus, comitibus Zwerinensibus et Nicolao comite Hallandiæ" donated property to the Knights Hospitallers of St John by undated charter (included under 1217 in the compilation)[587]. m (1217) ODA von Schwerin, daughter of GÜNZEL [II] Graf von Schwerin & his wife Oda --- (-[1218/19]). A charter dated 28 Feb 1221 names “Graff Hinrichs zu Schwerin Schwester, Frau Jdda” as widow of “Graff Niclausen von Halland, könig Woldemars zu Dennemarck natürlichen Sohns” and the rights of their young son “Nicolaus” to half of the county of Schwerin[588]. Despite the wording of this charter, it appears unlikely that Oda, wife of Niels Valdemarssen, could have been the daughter of Günzel [I] Graf von Schwerin unless she was considerably younger than her known brothers. In addition, she would have been almost 100 years old when she was named in 1283, even assuming that she was born at the end of her supposed father´s lifetime. Her entitlement to half the county of Schwerin suggests that her father must have been Graf von Schwerin himself. It appears more probable that Oda was the daughter of Günzel [II] Graf von Schwerin, and therefore niece not sister of Graf Heinrich [I], although the primary source which confirms that this is correct has not yet been identified. 1283. Niels & his wife had one child:

a) NIELS ([1218]-1251, bur Sorø).

Count of Halland. The Annales Ryenses record the death in 1251 of "comes Nicolaus"[590]. m as her first husband, CECILIE Jensdatter [Galen], daughter of JENS Jakobsen [Galen] & his wife Adelheid Gräfin von Dassel. She married secondly (1252) R. Anders Olufsen [Glug] (-1270). Niels & his wife had four children:

i) NIELS (-1271).

ii) ANDERS .

iii) JAKOB (-1308). The Annales Lubicenses record that "Iacobus" obtained the "cometiam Hallandiæ" in 1283[591]. Count of Halland. m ---. The name of Jakob's wife is not known. Jakob & his wife had three children:
