  • Notes 
    • "Helena is by some researchers believed to have been of Greek or Russian birth. In the 1070s she is believed to have arrived in Sweden with her husband Inge Stenkilsson who in 1080 became king of Sweden. Helena's 'Byzantine' influence is believed to be present in the first names she gave to her daughters: Kristina, Margareta and Katharina are actually Greek names, and were little known among the Germanic peoples of her era and practically unknown to Scandinavia until then."
