About Álfhildr Gandálfsdóttir

Synopsis

Alfhild, wife of Sigurd Ring (legendary king in Scandinavia), mother of Ragnar "Lodbrok" Sigurdsson.

Her father seems uncertain - Wikipedia gives her as "daughter of Alf", while many uploaded Gedcoms give her father as Gandolf Alfgeirsson. Sagas not consulted directly.

Estimates of her birth year range from 714 to 735.
