  • Name: Thyra HARALDSDOTTIR 1 2
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 960 in Denmark

  • Note:
    We hear of at least three children of Harald who survived him. One - a daughter of Queen Tove - was named Tyra. She married Styrbjorn Starke, the exiled nephew of Sweden's king Erik Segersall (Erik the Victorious). Styrbjorn had found refuge at Harald's court and perhaps had entered into a marriage alliance with Harald at that time. Harald Bluetooth is said to have supported Styrbjorn in his efforts to wrest Sweden away from Erik the Victorious, but the expedition failed.

    Tyra and Styrbjorn became parents of Thorgils Sparkalagger ("Kicking Legs") who in turn is said to have been grandfather of the famous Sven Estridsson and thus ancestor of a great many Danish monarchs, down to the present time. [Royal Families of Medieval Scandinavia, Flanders, & Kiev]
