Research Notes: Husband - Olaf Geirstad-Alf Gudr°dsson King of Jutland and Vestfold [Legendary]

Legendary Norwegian king, of the House of Yngling.

From Wikipedia - Olaf Geirstad-Alf :

Olaf Gudr°dsson, or as he was named after his death Olaf Geirstad-Alf, was a legendary Norwegian king of the House of Yngling from the Ynglinga saga . He was the son of Gudr°d the Hunter and the brother of Halfdan the Black . Gudr°d and Olaf conquered a large part of Raumarike .

Gudr°d died when Olaf was twenty years old and he and Halfdan divided their kingdom between them. Olaf took the southern part and resided in Geirstad. They only inherited Vestfold because Alfgeir took Vingulmark for himself and made his son Gandalf Alfgeirsson its king.

The Ynglinga saga relates that Olaf was a skillful man and a great warrior. He was also handsome, big and strong. He was the father of Ragnvald the Mountain-High .

During the reigns of Olaf and Halfdan the Black, Vńrmland started to pay tribute to the Swedish king Erik Anundsson instead.

He died of illness. Tjodolf of Hvin sang about him:
Long while this branch of Odin's stem
Was the stout prop of Norway's realm;
Long while King Olaf with just pride
Ruled over Westfold far and wide.
At length by cruel gout oppressed,
The good King Olaf sank to rest:
His body now lies under ground,
Buried at Geirstad, in the mound.

After his death, he was worshipped as an elf , and was called the Geirstad-alf (the "elf of Geirstad").

A hypothesis identifies Geirstad with Gjerstad near Gokstad, and his burial with the Gokstad Ship . 1 2


Research Notes: Child - Ragnvald "the Mountain-High" Olafsson King of Vestfold

From Wikipedia - Ragnvald the Mountain-High :

Ragnvald (or Rognvald) "the Mountain-High" Olafsson was a petty king of Vestfold in what is today Norway . He was the son of Olaf Geirstad-Alf , a cousin of Harald Fairhair and the father of Aseda (or Ascrida) Rognvaldsdatter, who married Eystein Ivarsson .

His greatest contribution to posterity was that he asked the skald Ůjˇ­ˇlfr of Hvinir to compose a poem about his ancestry. This poem is known as Ynglingatal and is not only one of the oldest, but also one of the most famous and debated of the Old Norse poems .

Ůjˇ­ˇlfr ended the poem with these lines:

Under the heaven's blue dome, a name
I never knew more true to fame
Than Rognvald bore; whose skilful hand
Could tame the scorners of the land, --
Rognvald, who knew so well to guide
The wild sea-horses through the tide:
The "Mountain-high" was the proud name
By which the king was known to fame. 5 6 7
