Relationships between historical figures could have been simplified or even fabricated in the text to give the impression that succession remained within the same family.

Precise chronology is also difficult to assess from the Sagas. The conclusion must be that the tight family network described in the Sagas is unlikely to be correct and that the relationships shown below should be treated with considerable caution.

It is doubtful they are the same person, and we should wait for more confirmation before merging Haraldsdottir-45 and Danemark-17

The merge was proposed with Thyre Danmark (Haraldsdottir-45) because they have the same parents, but only one shows up in If they are not the same person, either a change in parents or a notation that there are two in the family with the same name should be made. They are most likely the same person with one having bad dates.
