Research suggests that this person may never have existed. See the text for details.

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.

The parents listed for this individual are speculative and may not be based on sound genealogical research. Sources to prove or disprove this ancestry are needed. Please contact the Profile Manager or leave information on the bulletin board.


Dotter, Datter, Dottir are all the same ending, meaning "daughter" in Scandinavia, and attached behind 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 until about 100-200 years ago.

ALTERNATE BIRTH: 888, 873 Birth: 873 Hvammi, Dala, Iceland possible unmarried union, 1st for Ragnvald Death: 914 Hvammi Dala Iceland[1] or Ringerike, Buskerrud, Norway

Groa was born in 873 yet under Her son Trov, it has him as born in 852. Those don't match up. That makes the son older than the mother. Math?
