About Gyda Anundsdotter

https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunhild_Anundsdatter

Gunhild var datter av den svenske konge Amund Jacob , det er usikkert om dronning Gunhild var hennes mor. Hun ble i 1047 eller 48 gift med danske kong Sven Estridsen Muligvis var de allerede gift mens Svend bodde i eksil ved det svenske hoff. Etter ca. et års ekteskap dør Gunhild. Drept av en av Sveins Friller. Det vites ikke om noen av Svends barn også var Gunhilds. Etter at hennes far døde i 1050 giftet Svend seg med Gunhilds mor, eller stemor, enkedronning Gunhild, men paret ble snart tvunget av kirken til å gå fra hverandre. Stemoren vendte tilbake til Sverige, hvor hun eide gods i Vestgodtland og ifølge tradisjonen levet et klosterlignende, fromt liv for å bøte for sine synder. Gunhild er i historien ofte blitt blandet sammen med sin (ste)mor, fordi de bar samme navn (også Guda og Gyda), og fordi de begge var gift med Svend Estridsen

Biography

There is little information about Gyda. She was the daughter of King Anund Jacob of Sweden and Queen Gunhild of Sweden. Some sources, however, claim that Anund and Gunhild did not have any children. It is possible that she was the daughter of Anund and another woman. She was in 1047 or 1048 married to King Sweyn of Denmark. After about a year of marriage, she died. There is not known which, if any, of the children of Sweyn was also the children of Gyda. After the death of her father in 1050, Sweyn married her mother, but they were soon forced to separate by the church.

Gyda has in history often been confused and mixed up with her mother (or step-mother) Gunhild, as their names were similar and because they were both married to Sweyn. Consequently, she is said to have been forced to divorce Sweyn and move back to Sweden, were she became the founder of Gudhem convent in 1052. Both of them have also been called Gunhild, Guda or Gyda.
