She married Gregorius Andreson av Stovreim, and they had a daughter named Sigrid, No. 43 below. Gregorius was descended from a prominent family and his ancestor was King Inge of Sweden, (the younger). (See the King Inge line of descent to Gregorius).
  • Married: secondly (1248) HARALD King of Man, son of OLAV King of Man & his third wife Christina of Ross (-drowned 1249). Source Project MedLands, Kings of Norway -https://fmg.ac/Projects. The act itself brought Haraldr closer within the orbit of the English Crown. Late in 1247, however, Haraldr returned to Norway and married Hákon's daughter, Cecilía, and thereby bound himself closer to the Norwegian Crown. Whilst attempting to return to the Isles in the autumn of 1248, the newly-wed's ship was lost at sea south of Shetland in a tidal race known as Sumburgh Roost. News of Haraldr's demise appears to have reached Mann by the spring of 1249, whereupon his younger brother, Rǫgnvaldr, succeeded to the kingship. - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haraldr_Óláfsson

History of Harald Olafsson & CECILIA Haakonsdatte

Harald Olafsson (Old Norse: Haraldr Óláfsson; Mediaeval Gaelic: Aralt mac Amlaíb) was a 13th century King of Mann and the Isles. Haraldr was the son of Óláfr Guðrøðarson, King of Mann and the Isles, and a member of the Crovan dynasty of sea-kings. During Haraldr's 12 year reign, the dynasty's island-kingdom encompassed the Isle of Mann (Mann) and parts of the Hebrides (including the largest Hebridean islands of Lewis and Skye). At various times, Haraldr's predecessors were sometimes vassals of the Kings of Norway and those of England.

When he was 14 years old, Haraldr succeeded his father, on the latter's death in 1237. Upon taking power, Haraldr chose to live in the Hebridaen portion of his kingdom, and placed a certain Lochlann as governor of Mann. Hostilities soon broke out on Mann between Lochlann and Hebridean followers of Haraldr. When Haraldr returned to Mann Lochlann fled the island and drowned off the coast of Wales.

Some years later Haraldr was deposed from Mann by followers of the Hákon Hákonarson, King of Norway, because Haraldr refused to visit Hákon at his court in Norway. Harald made several unsuccessful attempts to reclaim Mann, before travelled to Norway and made amends with the Hákon. Upon his return to his island-kingdom two years later, Haraldr was warmly received by the Manx people, and a contemporary chronicle notes that he peacefully ruled for the rest of his reign. Sometime afterwards, the Norwegian king recalled him to Norway, and had Haraldr marry his daughter Cecilia. While attempting to return to the Kingdom of Mann and the Isles in 1248, the newly-wed's ship was lost at sea, in the perilous tidal race known as Sumburgh Roost, located south of Shetland. In 1249, Haraldr was succeeded by his brother Rögnvaldr, who reigned for a only a very short time.
