About Gyrithe Óláfsdotter, Dronning af Danmark

Gyrid, wife of Harald.

In some sources (Adam of Bremen) Harald's wife is called Gunhild. It is possible that they are two different people, but since no sources give any hint of where she might might have come from, we'll assume here that they're the same person.

She has nothing to do with Herfast de Crépon.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyrid_Olafsdottir

Princess Gyrid Olafsdottir of Sweden, also called Gyrithe Olafsdottir, (10th century) was a Swedish princess and a Danish Viking Age queen consort, the spouse of King Harald I of Denmark.

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

Biography:

Gyrid was the daughter of King Olof (II) Björnsson of Sweden and Queen Ingeborg Thrandsdotter. She was not the sister of the Swedish throne claimant Styrbjörn Starke, who was a Norwegian that used a false claim to be the son of former king Olof (II) Björnsson (who was already dead) in order to challenge Olof's brother Erik for the Swedish throne.

Gyrid is thought to have married Harold Bluetooth, who actually supported the previously mentioned Norwegian in his invasion attempt of Sweden.
