Biografi

Legenden säger att Estrid togs tillbaka till Sverige från ett krig i västra slaviska området Mecklenburg som ett krig - pris. Hon var troligen från sin far , en tribal chefen för Polabian obotriterna , som ett tackoffer i ett äktenskap att försegla fred , och hon tros ha fört med sig en stor hemgift , som en stor slavisk inflytande är representerat i Sverige från sin tid , främst bland hantverkare.

Hennes man hade också en älskarinna , Edla , som kom från samma område i Europa som sig själv, och som var om möjligt tas till Sverige vid samma tidpunkt . Kungen behandlas Edla och Estrid på samma sätt och gav sin son och hans två döttrar med Edla samma privilegies som barn han hade med Estrid , fast det var Estrid gifte han sig och gjorde Queen.

Drottning Estrid döptes tillsammans med sin make , sina barn och ett stort antal av det svenska hovet i 1008 , när den svenska kungafamiljen konverterat till kristendomen , men kungen lovade att respektera religionsfriheten - Sverige var inte för att vara kristna till den sista religiöst krig mellan Inge den äldre och Blot-Sven i 1084-1088 .

Snorre Sturlassons skrev om henne, att Estrid var ovänlig mot barnen ( Emund , Astrid och Holmfrid ) av makens älskarinna Edla , " Drottning Estrid var arrogant och inte snällt mot henne styvbarn , och därför konungen sände sin son Emund till Vendland , där Han uppfostrades av sin moderns släktingar " .

Estrid (Astrid) was a Slav that came from the western Slavic regions along the southern Baltic Sea coast. Her year of birth is uncertain, as another source indicates approximately 985. According to one source, she left her husband in 1019 and married the Norwegian King Olav Haraldsson, but other data argues she stayed with Olof, who died in 1022.

From the Wikipedia page on Estrid of the Obotrites:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estrid_of_the_Obotrites

Estrid (or Astrid) of the Obotrites (ca. 979 – 1035), was a Medieval and Viking age Swedish Queen consort and West Slavic Princess, married to Olof Skötkonung, the King of Sweden, ca. 1000–1022, mother of king Anund Jacob of Sweden and the Russian Saint and Queen (Grand Princess) Ingegerd Olofsdotter.

Biography

Legend says that Estrid was taken back to Sweden from a war in the West Slavic area of Mecklenburg as a war-prize. She was most likely given by her father, a tribal chief of the Polabian Obotrites, as a peace offering in a marriage to seal the peace, and she is thought to have brought with her a great dowry, as a great Slavic influence is represented in Sweden from her time, mainly among craftsmen.

Her husband also had a mistress, Edla, who came from the same area in Europe as herself, and who was possibly taken to Sweden at the same time. The king treated Edla and Estrid the same way and gave his son and his two daughters with Edla the same privilegies as the children he had with Estrid, though it was Estrid he married and made Queen.

Queen Estrid was baptised with her husband, their children and large numbers of the Swedish royal court in 1008, when the Swedish royal family converted to Christianity, although the king promised to respect the freedom of religion - Sweden was not to be Christian until the last religious war between Inge the Elder and Blot-Sweyn of 1084-1088.

Snorre Sturlasson wrote about her, that Estrid was unkind to the children (Emund, Astrid and Holmfrid) of her husband's mistress Edla; "Queen Estrid was arrogant and not kind towards her stepchildren, and therefore the king sent his son Emund to Vendland, where he was brought up by his maternal relatives".

Not much is known of Estrid as a person. Snorre Sturlasson mentions her as a lover of pomp and luxury, and as hard and strict towards her servants.

Children

1. Ingegerd Olofsdotter (circa 1001-1054), Grand Princess of Kiev, in Russia called Anna, married Yaroslav I the Wise, prince of Novgorod and Kiev.

2. Anund Jacob (circa 1010-1050), king of Sweden, succeeded Olaf as king in c. 1022.

From the Wikipedia page on the Obotrites:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obotrites

The Obotrites (German: Abodriten), also commonly known as the Obodrites, Abotrites, or Abodrites, were a confederation of medieval West Slavic tribes within the territory of modern Mecklenburg and Holstein in northern Germany (see Polabian Slavs). For decades they were allies of Charlemagne in his wars against Germanic Saxons and Slavic Veleti.

In 798 the Obodrites, ruled by prince Drożko, or Draško (Thrasco, orig.), defeated Saxons in the battle on Swentana river. The still heathen Saxons (Nordalbingians) were dispersed by the emperor, and the part of their former land in Holstein north of Elbe was awarded to the Obotrites in 804, as a reward for their victory. This however was soon reverted by invasion of Danes.

The Bavarian Geographer, an anonymous medieval document compiled in Regensburg in 830, contains a list of the tribes in Central Eastern Europe to the east of the Elbe. The list includes the Nortabtrezi (Obotrites) - with 53 civitates. Adam of Bremen referred to them as the Reregi because of their lucrative trade emporium Reric. In common with other Slavic groups, they were often described by Germanic sources as Wends.

The main tribes[1] of the Obotritic confederation were:

1. the Obotrites proper (Wismar Bay to Lake Schwerin);

2. the Wagrians (the eastern Holstein as part of Saxony);

3. the Warnower (the upper Warnow and Mildenitz);

4. the Polabians proper (between the Trave and the Elbe, SUPPOSEDLY OUR ANCESTOR COMES FROM HERE).

Other tribes associated with the confederation include:

1. the Linonen near Lenzen,

2. the Travnjane near the Trave,

3. the Drevani in the Hanoverian Wendland and the northern Altmark.[2]

The Limes Saxoniae forming the border between the Saxons to the west and the Obotrites to the eastAs allies of the Carolingian kings and the empire of their Ottonian successors, the Obotrites fought from 808 to 1200 against the kings of Denmark, who wished to rule the Baltic region independently of the empire.

When opportunities arose, for instance upon the death of an emperor, they would seek to seize power; and in 983 Hamburg was destroyed by the Obotrites under their king, Mstivoj. At times they levied tribute from the Danes and Saxons.

Under the leadership of Niklot, they resisted a Christian assault during the Wendish Crusade.

From the Wikipedia page on the Polabians:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polabians_(tribe)

The Polabians (German: Polaben; Latin: Polabi) were a constituent West Slavic tribe of the Obotrites who lived between the Trave and the Elbe. The main settlement of the Polabians was Racisburg (modern Ratzeburg), named after their Prince Ratibor. The Polabians were similar to the Drevani, also known as the Draväno-polaben or Drevanen, in Lüchow-Dannenberg.

Ben notes: The picture used to depict this person is not actually Estrid, but rather is a Swedish chess piece (a Queen) from Estrid's time period, near the turn of the first millenium AD.

She was most likely given by her father, a tribal chief of the Polabian Obotrites, as a peace offering in a marriage to seal the peace, and she is thought to have brought with her a great dowry, as a great Slavic influence is represented in Sweden from her time, mainly among craftsmen.

Her husband also had a mistress, Edla, who came from the same area in Europe as herself, and who was possibly taken to Sweden at the same time. The king treated Edla and Estrid the same way and gave his son and his two daughters with Edla the same privileges as the children he had with Estrid, though it was Estrid he married and made Queen.

Queen Estrid was baptised with her husband, their children and large numbers of the Swedish royal court in 1008, when the Swedish royal family converted to Christianity, although the king promised to respect the freedom of religion - Sweden was not to be Christian until the last religious war between Inge the Elder and Blot-Sweyn of 1084-1088.

Snorre Sturlasson wrote about her, that Estrid was unkind to the children (Emund, Astrid and Holmfrid) of her husband's mistress Edla; " Queen Estrid was arrogant and not kind towards her stepchildren, and therefore the king sent his son Emund to Vendland, where he was brought up by his maternal relatives".

Not much is known of Estrid as a person. Snorre Sturlasson mentions her as a lover of pomp and luxury, and as hard and strict towards her servants.

[edit] ChildrenIngegerd Olofsdotter (circa 1001-1054), Grand Princess of Kiev, in Russia called Anna, married Yaroslav I the Wise, prince of Novgorod and Kiev. Anund Jacob (circa 1010-1050), king of Sweden, succeeded Olaf as king in c. 1022.

"Queen of Sweden. With approximate years of birth and death given here, her original West Slavic heritage as a Princess of the Obotrites, in what now is Mecklenburg in northern Germany, is recorded in several sources. It can be assumed with reasonable certainty that she belonged to the early Nicholan Dynasty, and it is likely she was born near Schwerin. After the Battle of Swolder in 1000 she married the important Swedish ruler Olaf (V) Scotking and became his Queen Consort. Their son Anwynd James (Anund Jakob) was born around 1007. His double name, half pagan, half Christian, was created for diplomatic reasons and constitutes a start of the double first names that have been used by millions in the subsequent Swedish population. A year later Princess Ingigarth was born and the whole family was baptized by St. Siegfried at Husaby. Estrith saw her daughter's hand declined the suit of King Olaf II the Holy of Norway, whom her husband vehemently hated, but granted Great Prince Yaroslav I of far-away Kiev in 1020. According to Snorri Sturluson, Queen Estrith was "haughty and unkind to her step-children", King Olaf's earlier offspring by his official concubine Lady Ethel. To spare his elder son the problem, Olaf had had to send the future King Edmund (III) away to Lusatia to be brought up by Ethel's family. The queen was widowed two years after Ingigarth's wedding and probably survived Olaf by about a decade, passing away well into the reign of King Anwynd (IV) James. Due to his reported blindness, and in spite of his "golden clothing", the new king's unsuccessful war campaign to the Ukraine in 1024 to aid his brother-in-law against insurgents must have worried his mother at home. The burial of Estrith and Olaf near the sacred spring where they had been christened is related in later records, and the age of grave monuments found at Husaby Church coincides."

О Estrid of the Obotrites (русский)

Королева Эстриди, мать святой Анны, происходившая из самого знатного рода Швеции, была известна своим выдающимся умом, любвеобильным сердцем и великодушием.

Пребывала сначала в городе Упсале, затем попеременно то в построенной королем на морском берегу Новой Сигтуне, то в городе Скаре, где находилась кафедра епископа и сосредоточивались главные христианские силы страны.
