GUNHILD Svensdatter (-after 1060). Her parentage is referred to in Knytlinga Saga[97]. Snorre records that "Gunhild, Earl Svein's other daughter" was married to "the Danish king Svein Ulfson"[98]. The primary source which confirms her first marriage has not yet been identified. Adam of Bremen refers to the marriage of "rex iuvenis Suein" and "consanguineam a Suedia", the king being threatened with excommunication by the Archbishop of Bremen and papal letters, his wife being named "Gunhild [vel Giuthe] reginam" in a later passage which records that after her separation she devoted herself to charitable activities on her estates[99].

______________________________________

Gunhild's relation to Aslak Erlingsson of Sola is probably a misreading of

Snorri Sturlasson's Heimskringla, The Saga of St. Olav, chapt. 31, saying

that Gunhild was married to Aslak (not his daughter). This seems to be a

mixup with her sister Sigrid. Chapt 131 says Sigrid is the wife of Aslak.

Gunhild was divorced from Svend Estridsen ca 1054.

... from Brynjulf Langballe, Norway

Gunhild married Anund Jacob, son of Olof Skötkonung Eriksson of Sweden and Estrid of the Obotrites. (Anund Jacob was born in 1008 and died circa 1050-1052.)

Gunhild next married Svend II Estridsson of Denmark, son of Ulv jarl Torgilsson and Estrid Svendsdatter. The marriage ended in divorce circa 1054. (Svend II Estridsson of Denmark was born circa 1018-1020 in Denmark and died on 29 Apr 1074 in Doderup, Abenraa, Denmark.)
