About Hødd Svadesdatter

According to the Orkney saga, after the fight between Hrolf and Norr, "After that they made their quarrel up, and Norr got Hrolf’s sister, but Hrolf got Goi to wife."

Hrolf was the son of Svadi the Giant.

According to "Hversum Noregr byggdist", her name was Hødd, and she was the mother of Nor's sons Thrond and Gard (and by implication not to Raum, who inherited his father's kingdom).

"Hversu Noregr byggdist" gives information about Nor's sons:

"Nor var far til disse mennene og Hødd, Svadas datter, var mor til Thrond og Gard .. Raum, sønn av kong Nor, tok riket etter far sin." - we can understand this as saying that the mother of Raum was not Hødd.

This profile exists as a way to state explicitly that Hødd is not documented to be Raum's mother.
