Gunnhild needs a good wash and brush up

Canute and Emma's daughter Gunnhild cannot have been born 990, before him. Cawley says 1020 (on the profile). She was betrothed to the Emperor's son in 1035, married in 1036 and died in 1038. (ODNB) [[Wikipedia: Henry III, Holy Roman Emperor]] Little room there for two other marriages (possibly result of bad merge). She was never Empress as she died before her father-in-law. Are there any problems with clearing out the mess and giving her a nice tidy sourced profile?

Vortigern??

This looks like one of her personalities

Daughter of Burislaw of Wendland?

Or Vortigern

She might be getting confused with her mother. 

Who apparently was Canute's sister

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Svensdottir-8

which would mean she's been merged with her cousin.

 

 

 

MedLands figures Burislaw had 2 Gunhilds, so it's no wonder the internet is confused

With no protests from anyone I've written up her story.
