Trygve & his wife ÅSTRID Eiriksdatter' had three children:

  • a) INGIBJÖRG Trygvesdatter. Snorre names "Ingebjorg and Astrid…daughters of Astrid by King Trygve"[207]. Snorre records the marriage of "Ingebjorg, Trygve's daughter, King Olaf's sister" and "Earl Ragnvald, Ulf's son [208]. married (1000) as his first wife, RAGNVOLD Ulfsson, Jarl in Västergötland, son of ULF & his wife.
  • b) ASTRID Trygvesdatter. Snorre "Ingebjorg and Astrid…daughters of Astrid by King Trygve"[209]. Snorre names Astrid, sister of King Olav Trygvason, and in a later passage records her marriage "in Summer" with ERLING Skjalgson [210]. married (996) ERLING Skjalgsson of Sole, son of THORLEIF Skjalg & his wife (-killed in battle 1028). On his marriage, his brother-in-law invested him with the land north of Sognefjord and east of the Lidandisnes.
  • c) OLAV Trygveson (posthumously [968] Orkney-drowned Øresund o. b. Svold, near Rügen 9 Sep [1000]). The Historia Norwegie records that, after the murder of her husband, the widow of "Turgonem" fled to Orkney where she gave birth to their son "Olauum"[211]. Leaving Svithjod with his mother, he was captured by Vikings of Eistland [Estonia], but freed and taken to Holmgard by his maternal uncle Sigurd where he stayed at the court of Prince Vladimir[212]. The Historia Norwegie records that his mother sent him to Sweden to be brought up by "Thorolfo…Lusaskeg", after learning that Jarl Haakon Sigurdsson was planning to kill him, sailed for Russia but was captured by Vikings "in Eistriam" and sold as a slave. He was ransomed by "Olauo suo cognato" who had been sent as ambassador to "rege Ruscie"[213]. He left Garderike for Norway, meeting his first wife in Vindland where he remained for 3 years until she died, after which he adopted a marauding lifestyle[214]. He was one of the leaders of the attacks on England, culminating in the battle of Maldon and the signing of a treaty with Æthelred II King of England, under which 22,000 pounds of gold and silver were paid in return for a promise to help thwart future attacks. The treaty never came into full effect although the money was paid[215]. Olav claimed the throne when Haakon "the Mighty" Ladejarl, Regent of Norway, was murdered in 995. He was first accepted by the people of Trondheim, and gradually imposed himself as OLAV I King of Norway. According to Snorre[216], King Olav proposed to marry Sigrid Storrada, widow of Erik King of Sweden, but they disputed when they met. Saxo Grammaticus[217] recounts a similar story. Adam of Bremen records that "Olaph Trucconis filius" was baptised in Norway by Adaldagus Bishop of Bremen, after accepting Christianity in England following his expulsion from Norway[218]. He succeeded in establishing Christianity in Norway, building the first churches in the country. Olav I King of Norway attempted to invade Denmark but was defeated by King Svend in a naval battle "inter Sconiam et Seland", during which King Olav was drowned, after which Svend imposed himself as king of Norway[219]. The Historia Norwegie records the death in battle of King Olav[220]. married firstly ([982]%29 GYDA [Geira] of the Wends, daughter of BURISLAW King of the Wends & his wife (-984). Snorre names "Geira, Gunhild and Astrid" as the three daughters of "in Vindland…a king called Burizleif", recording that Geira was queen in the part of the country in which Olav landed when returning from Garderike. He records that that they married in 982 and that Olav stayed in Vindland to rule jointly with his wife[221]. Snorre records that Geira died after Olaf Trygvason had been in Vindland for three years[222]. married secondly (in England 988) as her second husband, GYDA, widow of, daughter of OLAF Sihtricsson King of Dublin & his wife. Snorre records the betrothal and marriage of Olaf Trygvason to "a queen called Gyda…a sister of Olaf Kvaran who was king of Dublin in Ireland [who] had been married to a great earl in England" after whose death "she was at the head of his dominions"[223]. In a later passage, Snorre refers to "King Olaf Kvaran" as his wife's father[224]. From a chronological point of view, it seems more likely that King Olav’s wife was Olaf Sihtricsson’s daughter. m thirdly ([995]) GUDRUN Skeggesdatter, daughter of SKEGGE Asbjörnsson & his wife ---. Snorre records the marriage of King Olav and Gudrun daughter of Jarnskegge, recording that she tried to stab her husband during their first night together, after which they separated[225]. m fourthly (998) as her third husband, TYRE Haraldsdatter, widow [firstly] of STYRBJÖRN [Bj%C3%B6rn] “den Starke/the Strong" of Sweden, and divorced wife [secondly] of BURISLAW King of the Wends, daughter of HARALD I “Blåtand/Bluetooth” King of Denmark & his wife Gunhild of the Wends (-18 Sep [1000]). Snorre records Tyre's flight from her second husband to Norway and her marriage to King Olav in 999[226]. The Historia Norwegie records the marriage of King Olav and "sororem Sweinonis regis…Tyri" who had earlier been betrothed to "dux quidam de Sclauia"[227]. Adam of Bremen records the marriage of "Olaph Trucconis filius" and "a Dania superbissimam Thore" soon after he returned to Norway after exile in England[228]. Adam of Bremen records that, after the death of her husband, his wife starved herself to death[229]. King Olav I & his second wife had one child:

From Snorre Sturlason: Olav the Saint's Story, Chapter 69

"69. ... Bjorn and his companion rode their way, and came to Earl of Ragnvald. There they were well received. There were many people who had heard of Bjorn, and all who had seen King Olav knew him both by appearance and voice, for Bjorn stood up on all things and spoke on the king's behalf. Ingebjorg, the earl's wife, went to Hjalte and kissed him; she knew him, for she was with Olav Trygveson, her brother when Hjalte was there, and Hjalte reckoned friendship between the king and Vilborg, who was Hjalte's wife: Eirik Bjodaskalle was the father of Astrid, mother of King Olav Trygveson; and Bodvar was the father of Ålov, the mother of Gissur Hvite, the father of Vilborg, and the two, Eirik and Bodvar, were brothers and sons of Vikinge-Kåre, the countryman at Voss ». 1)
