By The Swedish Biographical Dictionary

Sture . During the first half of the 1300s, the coat-of-arms with three beam-arranged sea leaves could have been coated for Anund S (d. 1360 or 1361) and for the Swedish National Council Gustaf Tunason (Ving family), of which the former sealed two letters in 1350. The nickname S was used at this time. also by a Rörik S (d earliest in 1357) whose coat of arms was an eraser head, to which Anund S sealed a letter in 1343. The name indicates that this Rörik S was a descendant of the knight Rörik S (d earliest in 1312), which in 1310 occurs among the dukes Erik's lifters. It seems likely that Anund S on the ancestor belonged to the same genus as Rörik S and acquired the sea-leaf weapon from the Ving family, from which he may have descended on the mother (Carlsson).

Anund S has at the earliest been able to be settled at the settlement between King Birger and his brothers in Helsingborg in 1310, in which he is mentioned among the numerous pledges of the former. Thereafter he did not appear in known records until 1321, when he was given land in Dalsland by Duke Eric's widow Ingeborg (bd 20) for faithful service and was among the ten persons she stated as his advice when she was at Bohus with Prince Henrik of Mecklenburg agreed on future marriages between his daughter Euphemia (bd 14) and his son Albrekt. After the breakup between Ingeborg and the guardianship of her son King Magnus, S has not been able to be elected as a national council until in a note from the 1600s (Gillingstam 1948) on the issuers of a no longer preserved letter from 1328 on the reconstruction of Hunehal's castle. In 1326 or 1327 he had been called a knight, possibly at Ingeborg's wedding with Knut Porse (bd 29) last year. In 1328, S brought to the port city of Lödöse with an escort of 40 armed riders without financial compensation the six-year measure collected by the papal nunties, which, due to unrest, could no longer be brought to Riseberga monastery. In 1333 he and the knight Ulf Filipsson (Ulv) were King Magnus governors in Skåne, when they examined the accounts of the customs in Skanör and Falsterbo (Sjöstedt, p. 227). The S Council is mentioned later in the King's confirmation of Lübeck's privileges in 1344, in the King's will 1346 and among the guarantors for the King's large loan from Pope 1351. During the King's son Eric's rebellion against his father, he remained loyal to the father. In addition to the Dallandian goods S 1321 received by King Magnus's mother, and which he sold as early as 1325, he owned land in Västergötland, Närke and Östergötland. In Gäsene heralded in the former landscape he was governor in 1347, and in 1349 a part of Kinne hered in the same landscape was granted to him. S was married to Katarina, probably sister (Carlsson, p. 92, note 3) to Marshal Erengisle Näskonungsson (bd 14).

His son Magnus S (d earliest in 1391) was knight already when he began to appear in now known records in 1356 and belonged to his father King Magnus's followers during the conflict with his son Erik. In the Edsviken in Sollentuna snow in Uppland, the cease-fire treaty dated 1371 dated, on the one hand, King Albrek's followers, on the other King Magnus and his son Håkans he is mentioned among the 29 representatives of the latter. Subsequently, S appears to have been active in Magnus and Håkan's West Swedish part.

In his marriage to Karin, daughter of the knight Algot Magnusson (the family of the Algot Sons), whose widow remarried to the aforementioned Gustaf Tunason, S became the father of Algot Magnusson(d 1426). This man, who was apparently named after his probable grandfather before his birth, married some of the years 1374–81 to Märta Bosdotter, daughter of Bo Jonsson's (Grip; bd 5) uncle Bo Bosson (Night and Day; bd 26, p. 408 fo 411) and appears early in other neighborhoods than his father, earliest with his mother's half-sister Bengta Gustafsdotter (Ving family) and her husband Heyne Snakenborg (bd 32). In Bo Jonsson's will in 1384, A is mentioned as an alternate for one of his ten will executors, the holy Birgitta's son Birger Ulfsson (Ulvåsa family, vol. 4), and in 1385 he calls himself "capitaneus" (chief white man) at the western Gothic castle Öresten in Marks hierad , which castle according to the will was pledged to Bo Jonsson. On January 5, 1388, he declared himself to have the Earl and the same to Bo Jonsson pledged the castle Opensten along with Marks and Kinds herald as county by Queen Margareta. This happened a couple of months before most of Bo Jonsson's wills paid tribute to Margareta, and A was thus the first Swede to be credited with her. In connection with King Albrekt's defeat and capture in 1389, he must have, according to a certificate from 1460 (B l6), besieged the aforementioned Heyne Snakenborg belonging to Vädersholm in Södra Vings sn in Västergötland. The unique task (Ericus Olai), that A together with Abraham Brodersson (bd 1) would have commanded the troops with which Queen Margareta at the beginning of the 1390s let Sthlm occupy, is suspected (Erslev) to be misplaced. In the letters from the negotiations in Lindholmen and Helsingborg in 1395 he is mentioned among numerous Nordic great men, but only in the Nyköpings agreement 1396 can he safely be placed among the "national advisers in Sweden". A was then a knight, which he must have been on the tribute of King Erik to Mora stones that year. In 1396, he was mentioned as chief white man in Uppland, which was combined (Fritz) with a letter from 1395 (BSH) about fighting against the vitalists in Sthlm and considered to mean "a management assignment of a distinct military nature". In 1397 A was present at the union meeting in Kalmar, and at Sven S's (see below) settlement with Queen Margareta in 1398 he got together with Nils Svarte Skåning on behalf of the Queen Faxeholm with Hälsingland and half Medelpad. In the fall of 1403 he was, together with the aforementioned Abraham Brodersson, according to the annotated commander of the one with whom the queen in vain sought to conquer Gotland, and he is mentioned mainly in the arrest treaty which in the spring of 1404 was concluded in Slite with the commanders of the German Order troops. As a salary for his services, A 1405 received from King Erik and Queen Margareta the castle of Styresholm with Ångermanland, which he still held in 1419, when he is mentioned among the sealers of the covenant treaty between King Erik and Poland-Lithuania. According to this treaty he also held Gripsholm and Rävsnäs in Södermanland, but according to the 1423 federal treaty between Erik and his Hanseatic cities, Gripsholm had another holder (cf. bd 12, p. 25 f), while A is stated to hold Nyköping instead. In 1409 he was present at the Räfsting in Södermanland. In 1416 and 1417, A participated in King Erik's war in Schleswig (Carlsson 1965, p. 33). On several occasions during the years 1411-16 (SD 1467, 1888 and 2204), he was accused of wrongfully acquiring land. A and his wife Märta were buried in Vadstena Monastery, where their tombstone is preserved.
