About Helga Moddansdóttir

Mistress (1): HELGA, daughter of MODDAN of Dalr in Caithness & his wife ---. Orkneyinga Saga names “Helga” daughter of “a farmer…Moddan…living in the Dales of Caithness” as “Earl Hakon´s mistress”[942]. Her stepson banished her and her sister Frakok to the latter's estates in Helmsdale, Sutherland after the death of her son [1131]. >>Hakon had three illegitimate children by her.(Cawley's Medlands)

[In plain words, her father was NOT a Mormaer of Caithness or any place else. Maven]
