      • There are reasons to believe she is the same as his other spouse Gareth, married around 965, OR she is the mother of Harald's wife Gyrith as the dates are very far apart.

children attributed to her are doubtful if the DoB is to be believed.

  • Dotter, Datter, Dottir are all the same, meaning "daughter" in Scandinavia, and attached behind of the father's first name. A woman kept her birth name all her life and did not take on her husband's last name as her own.
  • her birthplace is alternately given as Copenhagen, Denmark.

Olafsdottir-58 and Olafsdottir-20 appear to represent the same person because: Olafsdottir-20 is a fictionalised version of Gyrid, time-travelled into a different myth. She needs merging away.
