About Wife of Harald the Black

The wife of Harald the Black is unknown. It has been suggested that she was a daughter of Ragnfred Eriksson, but no evidence is known. For a discussion of problems and sources, see soc.genealogy.medieval, Descendants of Erik Bloodaxe (2000).

Alexander Bugge hävdar att kungarna på Man stammar från Ragnfred Eriksson, och det syns som om en dotter till Ragnfred blev gift med Harald I Svarte av Islay. (Fra Skanke-slektens historie, G.V.C. Young, 1986, sid 10) och (Fra Skanke-släktens historia, G.V.C. Young, stamtavla 1a)

English translation: Alexander Bugge claims that the kings of Man stem from Ragnfred Eriksson, and it appears as if a daughter of Ragnfred was married to Harald the Black of Islay. (Fra-Skanke slektens history, GVC Young, 1986, page 10) and (Fra-Skanke family history, GVC Young, pedigree 1a)
