OBS: There is NO SUCH PLACE as "Maer" in Nord-Trøndelag, and Møre where her husband was the Earl (Jarl) is NOT in Trøndelag. Hild was NOT a "countess", such titles did not exist at the time. Please remove such bad data.)

Hun var datter av odelsbonden Rolv Nevja. Nefja eller Nevja er ikke et slektsnavn, men et tilnavn faren Rolv hadde. Betydninger er "nese" og hadde trolig å gjøre med skatteinnkreving (pr. nese). Hild er kjent som "datter av Rolf Nefja".

Hild var gift med Ragnvald Mørejarl. Død omkring 890. De hadde barna:

1. Hertug Gange-Rolv Ragnvaldson av Normandie. Født mellom 860 og 866. Død 931. 2. Tore Teiande Ragnvaldson Mørejarl. Født omkring 862. Død mellom 938 og 940.

Hild (Ragnhild) reiste til kong Harald Hårfagre for å be om nåde for sin sønn, Gange-Rolv, da han av kongen ca. 886 var lyst fredløs over hele Norge på grunn av strandhugg i Viken, men Gange-Rolv måtte forlate landet. ---------------------- Hild was married to Ragnvald Earl of Møre:

RAGNVALD "the Wise", son of [EYSTEIN "Glumra/Clatterer" Jarl in Norway & his wife ---] (-[894]). Orkneyinga Saga names “Eystein the Clatterer, father of the wise counsellor Earl Rognwald the Powerful…”, adding that “Earl Rognwald campaigned with King Harald Fine-Hair who gave him charge of North More, South More and Romsdale”[141]. Snorre names "Ragnvald Earl of More, a son of Eystein "Glumra" when recording that he had become a supporter of King Harald who had invested him with the districts of North More and Raumsdal[142]. Snorre records that he was created Jarl of North and South Möre and of Raumsdal in Norway by Harald I "Hårfagre" King of Norway after his victory at Solskiel [869] against Hunthiof King of Möre and Nokve King of Raumsdal[143]. Orkneyinga Saga and Snorre both record that King Harald granted Shetland and Orkney to Ragnvald in compensation for the death of his son Ivar[144]. The Historia Norwegie records that "principi Rogwaldi" crossed the Solund Sea, destroyed the peoples of the Orkney islands, in the days of "Haraldi Comati regis…Norwegie"[145]. Orkneyinga Saga records that “Halfdan Long-Leg and Gudrod Gleam, King Harald´s sons by Snæfrid” attacked “Earl Rognvald of More, killed him and assumed his authority”[146]. Snorre records that Ragnvald was ambushed in his hall and burned alive by Halfdan Haaleg and Gudred Liomi, two of King Harald's sons[147].

m [RAGNHILD, daughter of HROLF “Nevja/Nose” & his wife ---. Orkneyinga Saga records that “Earl Rognwald” married “Ragnhild the daughter of Hrolf Nose”[148]. Snorre names "Hild, a daughter of Rolf Nefia" as the wife of "Earl Ragnvald"[149].]

[Ragnvald & his wife had three children:]

1. [IVAR (-killed in battle either Hafrsfiord [872] or Orkney [874]). Orkneyinga Saga names “Ivar and Thorer the Silent” as the two other sons of “Earl Rognwald” and his wife “Ragnhild the daughter of Hrolf Nose”, adding that Ivar was killed in battle fighting with Harald I "Hårfagre" King of Norway in Scotland[150]. Snorre names "Ivar, a son of Ragnvald Earl of More" when recording his death in battle during a Viking campaign against the Scottish islands[151]. The Complete Peerage dates the appointment of Sigurd (Ivar´s reported paternal uncle) as Jarl of Orkney to [875][152], which means that Ivar must have been killed shortly before this date. However, as explained below this causes considerable chronological difficulties with the reported events in the career of Turf-Einar, Ivar´s youngest illegitimate half-brother, so should be considered as extremely approximate.

2. [ROLLO [Hrolf "Ganger/the Walker"] (-[928]). Orkneyinga Saga names “Hrolf who conquered Normandy” as son of “Earl Rognwald” and his wife “Ragnhild the daughter of Hrolf Nose”, adding that he was so big that no horse could carry him, giving rise to his name “Göngu-Hrolf”[153]. Snorre names "Rolf and Thorer" as the two sons of "Earl Ragnvald" and his wife Hild, recording that Rolf was banished from Norway by King Harald and travelled to the Hebrides, settling first in Orkney before moving southwards through Scotland, and eventually conquering Normandy[154]. The Historia Norwegie records that, after Orkney was conquered by "principi Rogwaldi" and his followers, "de quorum collegio…Rodulfus" captured Rouen in Normandy, commenting that he was known as "Gongurolfr" because he was obliged to walk as he was too large to travel on horseback[155]. This source makes no reference to any blood relationship between Rollo and "principi Rogwaldi". According to Dudo of Saint-Quentin, Rollo arrived in northern France in 876[156], although there is some debate about [900] being a more likely date[157]. William of Jumièges records that Rollo was chosen by lot to be leader of the Viking colonists[158]. Viking raids intensified in northern France. Although they were defeated after raiding Chartres [911], Charles III "le Simple" King of the West Franks granted the Normans land around Rouen in which to settle[159]. The uncertain nature of the demise was the source of future problems between the French crown, which claimed that it was an enfeofment for which the ruler owed allegiance, and the later Dukes of Normandy who claimed it was an unconditional allod for which no allegiance was owed. A charter dated 14 Mar 918 which granted land to the monastery of Saint-Germain-des-Prés "except that part…which we have granted to the Normans of the Seine, namely to Rollo and his companions"[160]. He was later known as ROBERT I Comte [de Normandie].]

3. [THORE Ragnvaldsson "Tause/the Silent". Orkneyinga Saga names “Ivar and Thorer the Silent” as the two other sons of “Earl Rognwald” and his wife “Ragnhild the daughter of Hrolf Nose”[161]. Snorre names "Rolf and Thorer" as the two sons of "Earl Ragnvald" and his wife Hild[162]. He succeeded his father in [894] as Jarl of Möre, having dispossessed Gudrod "Ljome", son of King Harald, who had seized Möre on the death of Jarl Ragnvald[163]. m ([890]) ALOF "Aarbod/Season-bettering", daughter of HARALD I "Hårfagre/Harfagri/Fairhair" King of Norway & his second wife Gyda of Hordaland. Snorre records that King Harald gave Jarl Thore his daughter "Alof, called Arbot" after the king confirmed him as Jarl of Möre[164].] [Thore & his wife had one child:]

a) [BERGLJOT Thoresdatter. The Historia Norwegie names "Bergliota filia Thoris Tacentis", from "nobilissima Morensium ac Halogensium comitum prosapia", as the wife of "Siwardo"[165]. Snorre names "Bergljot, a daughter of Earl Thorer the Silent" & his wife as the wife of Sigurd[166]. m SIGURD Jarl, son of HAAKON Grjotgardson Jarl of Haalogaland & his wife -- (-murdered Oglo 962).] ---------------------- Fra Snorre Sturlason: Harald Hårfagres saga: «24. Ragnvald Mørejarl var den kjæreste venn kong Harald hadde, og kongen satte ham høyt, Ragnvald jarl var gift med Hild, datter til Rolv Nevja (Nese); deres sønner var Rolv og Tore. ... Rolv var en stor viking; Han var så svær av vekst at ingen hest kunne bære ham, derfor gikk han til fots overalt. Han ble kalt Gange-Rolv. Han herjet ofte i Austerveg. En sommer han kom østfra til Viken fra vikingtog, hogg han strandhogg der. Kong Harald var i Viken; han ble alvorlig sint, da han fikk høre om dette, for han hadde strengt forbudt å rane innenlands. Kongen lyste på tinget at han gjorde Rolv fredløs i Norge. Da Hild, Rolvs mor, fikk vite dette, dro hun til kongen på ba om fred for Rolv, men kongen var så sint at det nyttet henne ikke å be. Da kvat Hild dette: Du vraker Nevjas navne, driver som varg av landet bønders kjekke helbror; hvorfor så bister, herre? farlig å vise ulvhug mot slik en ulv, høvding; han blir ikke god mot fyrstens flokk om til skogs han renner». 1)

He was married to Hild, a daughter of Rolf Nefia, and their sons were Rolf and Thorer. Earl Ragnvald had also three sons by concubines, -- the one called Hallad, the second Einar, the third Hrollaug; and all three were grown men when their brothers born in marriage were still children Rolf became a great viking, and was of so stout a growth that no horse could carry him, and wheresoever he went he must go on foot; and therefore he was called Rolf Ganger."

-------------------- Her son Rolf Ganger plundered much in the East sea. One summer, as he was coming from the eastward on a viking's expedition to the coast of Viken, he landed there and made a cattle foray. As King Harald, Rolf's father, happened to be in Viken, he heard of it, and was in a great rage; for he had now forbid the plundering within the bounds of the country. The king assembled a Thing, and had Rolf declared an outlaw over all Norway. When Ragnhild heard of it, she hastened to the king, and entreated peace for Rolf; but the king was so enraged that here entreaty was of no avail. Then she spoke up: "Do you think, King Harald, in your anger, To drive away my brave Rolf Ganger Like a mad wolf, from out the land? Why is your cruelty so fell? Think twice, king, it's ill With such a wolf at wolf to play, Who, driven to the wild woods away May make the king's best deer his prey."

-------------------- I henhold til Orkneyinga saga ble hun også kalt Ragnhild. Hennes far var Rolf Nefja. Hun er kjent for et kvad hun laget som en protest mot kong Harald Hårfagre. Årsaken til denne protesten var, at kongen hadde lyst hennes sønn Rolf fredløs på grunn av strandhugg han hadde gjort på norske kysten da han kom hjem fra vikingeferd i Baltikum. Slike strandhugg hadde kongen lagt ned et strengt forbud mot. Rolf dro til utlandet som viking, og ble stamfar til de senere engelske konger. Han sverget troskapsed til kongen av Frankrike og ble den første hertug av Normandie og ane til Vilhelm erobreren. --------------------
