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

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.

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

Adam av Bremen forteller at kong Harald mottok dåpen "sammen med sin hustru, Gunhild", og at minnet om kongen "og hans hustru Gunhild" skal leve evig i Bremen. Ut over dette kjenner vi ikke det minste til Gunhild, men det er sannsynlig at kong Haralds datter Gunhild er oppkalt etter sin mor. I så fall har vi en bekreftelse på dronning Gunhilds eksistens. Gunhild var antagelig mor til Svend Tjugeskjegg

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 the sister of the Swedish throne claimant Prince Styrbjörn Starke, whom she accompanied to Denmark when he left Sweden after his inheritance to the throne was denied him, in order to marry Harald Bluetooth.
