  • 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 Skötkonung 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]
