About Olaf Sweynsson

As a young child, he was kidnapped by Jon Wing, a second cousin to his father, in retaliation for his father's abduction of Jon Wing's two brothers, Peter and Blann. When Jarl Rögnvaldr spotted Oláfr on the island of Westray he immediately had Jon Wing return the boy to his home before Kolbein and Sweyn could retaliate and kill Jon.

Oláfr later divided his father's estate with his brother Andres and presumably led a quiet obscure life.
