The primary source which confirms her first marriage has not yet been identified. Her second marriage is referred to by Saxo Grammaticus who states that "Ulvildam Noricam", wife of "Nicolaus", was secretly abducted by King Sverker but their "connection was accepted as a marriage".
m secondly (after 1143) as her third husband, RYKSA [Swantosława] of Poland, widow firstly of MAGNUS I "den Stærke/the Strong" King of Denmark and secondly of VLADIMIR Vsevolodich Prince of Novgorod, daughter of BOLESŁAW III "Krzywousty/Wrymouth" Prince of Poland & his second wife Salome von Berg-Schelklingen ([1116/17]-after 25 Dec 1155). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Rikissam" as the only daughter of "dux Vergescelaus de Polonia" and his wife Agnes, specifying that "primo fuit regina Suecie", that by her second husband "regi Russie nomine Musuch" she was mother of "Sophiam reginam Dacie et Rikissam", the latter marrying "imperatoris Castelle Alfunso". This appears to be a confused account which contradicts other sources in many aspects. She was known as RIKISSA in Sweden. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/SWEDEN.htm#_Toc190776904
