Ingibjörg, dotter till Hacon, earl av Orkney, och syster till Harold, earl av Orkney, liksom att Margaret, hustru till Madadh, earl av Atholl. Orkney Saga anges uttryckligen att Ingibjorg var gift med kung Olav, och förvisso är det inte antas att en dam av sådana välkända födelse och anslutningar ska förnedra sig själv för att bli en konkubin ens av en kung. Ingibjörg dock som föds efter döden av kung Magnus och etableringen av sin far i Orkneyöarna, det vill säga om 1105-1110, kan inte ha varit gift till ca 1125, medan äktenskapet av kung Olav med Afreca of Galloway ingen tvekan ägde rum kort efter anslutningen av OLAF till tronen. (Chronicle of Man och Sudreys, Munch) Bar


Ingibjörg, daughter of Hacon, Earl of Orkney, and sister to Harold, Earl of Orkney, as well as to Margaret, the wife of Madadh, Earl of Atholl. The Orkney Saga states expressly that Ingibjorg was married to King Olaf; and, indeed, it is not to be supposed that a lady of such illustrious birth and connections should degrade herself as to become a concubine even of a king. Ingibjörg, however, being born after the death of King Magnus and the firm establishment of her father in the Orkneys, that is to say about 1105-10, cannot have been married till about 1125, while the marriage of King Olaf with Afreca of Galloway no doubt took place shortly after the accession of Olaf to the throne.
