  • ID: I13589
  • Name: Sitric (Sygtrygg) King of DUBLIN 1 2 3
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 850 in Dublin, Ireland
  • Death: 896 2 3
  • Note:
    Carol (Seejay51) stated that Sitric (she named him "Halfdansson" implying that he was son of Halfdan?) was father of Sitric King of Dublin & York. Todd Farmerie stated that the name of his father was not known, and naming one's son after the father was not common custom. Todd did state that Sitric, King of Dublin & York, was grandson of Inguar of Dublin (who I take to be another name for Ivar the Boneless).

    Stewart Baldwin, reviewing a book "Scandinavian Kings in the British Isles, 850-880" by Smyth, stated that Smyth said Sitric's father was also named Sitric (d. 896). Stewart Baldwin did not agree with the name (it was not the practice to name one's son after one's self), but did verify that Sitric King of Dublin & York was grandson of Ivar.

    Stewart Baldwin, on his website entitled "The Kings of the Isle of Man", in the notes under "Table 1: Kings of Dublin" states that Ivar had a son Sitric, who died in 896. However he does not connect that Sitric with Sitric King of Dublin & York; EXCEPT to say that Harald King of Limerick, if not son of one Sitric, could be the son of the other Sitric, which seems to imply a relationship between the two Sitrics.

    Note: The sources seem to agree that there was one generation between Ivar (the father) & Sitric (the son). Obviously this generation was named something, and "Sitric" is the only name given (although the name is questioned by some), so I am using it, even if possibly/probably wrong.
