This project aims to organize and enhance the lines of the Norwegian medieval Gyldenløve family.
From Wikipedia: So-called Nils Henrikssons slekt, based on its escutcheon figure, has later been given that surname in genealogy and historiography, although only the last female members of the family ever at most used that as surname. The lion figure is believed to have signified their descent from the royal dynasty. The family's most prominent member was Nils Henriksson (died 1523), Lord High Steward of Norway, who was married with the famed lady Inger Ottesdottir Rømer, heiress of Austraat.
