http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olof_Bj%C3%B6rnsson

Olof Björnsson (cirka 970 - 975), var en svensk sagokung som ska ha samregerat med sin bror Erik Segersäll och dött av ett ormbett (etter).

Han var gift med Ingeborg Thrandsdotter med vilken han fick barnen Styrbjörn Starke och Gyrithe Olafsdotter. Då tinget efter Olofs död ansåg Styrbjörn Starke som olämplig att vara sveakung, föreslog Erik Segersäll sitt ofödda barn till medregent på villkor att det var en son och det blev Olof Skötkonung.

Olof Björnsson (ca 970 - 975), was a semi-legendary Swedish king, who according to Hervarar saga and the Styrbjarnar þáttr Svíakappa ruled together with his brother Eric the Victorious. He was the father of Styrbjörn Starke and Gyrid by his queen, Ingeborg Thrandsdotter, and he died of poison during a meal. Instead of proclaiming his son Styrbjörn co-ruler, Eric proclaimed his own unborn child co-ruler on condition that it was a son. It was a son who became Olof of Sweden.
