a. Note:   Some on-line sources claim that Styrbjörn and Tyra were the parents of Thorkel Sprakalegg, and that this Thorgil was the father of a Gytha, called Gytha Thorkelsdóttir who married Godwin, Earl of Wessex and became the mother of Harold II of England. It is not clear what this extended claim is based upon. The sole near-contemporary source which says anything about who was the father of Truls Sprakalegg, is Florence of Worcester, who names Sprakalegg's father as 'Urso', which (another word for bear) would be same as Bjorn. The name Bjorn was widely used among Vikings, and therefore the identification between Urso and Styrbjorn the Strong was made up only by probable wishful thinkers. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
