Alternative sources

Hversu Noregr Byggðist says he is the son of Hrœrekr slöngvanbaugi and the brother of Harald Wartooth.

According to Hervarar saga both Randver and Harald Wartooth were the sons of Valdar and Alfhild, the daughter of Ivar Vidfamne. This saga relates that Ivar appointed Valdar the king of Denmark, and when Valdar died, he was succeeded by Randver. When his brother Harald, had reclaimed Götaland (or Gotland depending on the manuscript), Randver died hastily in England, and was succeeded by Sigurd Hring as the king of Denmark (probably as Harald's viceroy).
