  • Notes 
    • "Tradition says Edla was the daughter of a West Slavic tribal chief from Northern Germany. She was brought to Sweden as a prisoner of war c. 1000 at the same time or a little before, the arrival of Estrid of the Obotrites (Estrid av obotriterna). King Olof Sk√∂tkonung married Estrid but also fell in love with Edla and took her as his mistress. She became the mother of Emund, Astrid, and probably Holmfrid." [Wikipedia]
