Followed sources

Randvér or Randver was according to the Lay of Hyndla, the son of Ráðbarðr the king of Garðaríki and Auðr the Deep-Minded, the daughter of Ivar Vidfamne. In these two sources Auðr had previously been married to Randver's brother, Harald Wartooth.

Randver was married to Ingild, the daughter of an unknown Swedish king, he was succeeded by his son Sigurd Ring.

Alternative sources

Hversu Noregr Byggðist gives him as the son of Hrœrekr slöngvanbaugi and the brother of Harald Wartooth.

According to Hervarar saga both Randver and Harald Wartooth were the sons of Valdar and Alfhild, the daughter of Ivar Vidfamne. This saga relates that Ivar appointed Valdar the king of Denmark, and when Valdar died, he was succeeded by Randver. When his brother Harald had reclaimed Götaland (or Gotland depending on the manuscript), Randver died hastily in England, and was succeeded by Sigurd Ring as the king of Denmark (probably as Harald's viceroy).
