     "ORDMÆR (-[963/71]). Ealdorman of Devon. In the primary sources so far consulted while preparing the present document, Ordmær is only named as the father of Æthelflæd. No source has yet been found which names him in his personal capacity. It is probable that he was appointed as Ealdorman of Devon in [962/64] after the death of Ealdorman Ælfgar, probably by King Edgar and maybe around the same time as the king´s marriage to his daughter. He presumably died soon afterwards as Ordgar, whose death as Ealdorman of Devon is recorded in 971, is recorded as "dux" (no territorial epithet) from 964 (see below).

William of Malmesbury recounts that King Edgar killed Ælfthryth's first husband to enable him to marry her[41]. She was crowned with her husband in 973, apparently the first recorded instance of the coronation of a queen in England. It was alleged that she was involved in the plot to kill her stepson so her own son could succeed as king[42].

Simeon of Durham records the marriage of King Eadgar and "the daughter of Ordgar duke of Devonshire after the death of her husband Elfwold…duke of the East Angles" in 964[63]. The Genealogia Comitis Ailwini records the death in 971 of “Ethelwoldus comes, frater Ailwini” and his burial at Ramsey[64], although this date is inconsistent with his widow´s remarriage as shown below.
     "[m firstly ---. There is no proof that Æthelwold had an earlier marriage. However, Ælfthryth must have considerably younger than her husband, who was already active in the administration of the country in 940, the earliest date when his name appears in subscription lists of charters, which makes an earlier marriage probable.]

     Gunhilda (?) married Harald I "Blåtand/Bluetooth" Gormsson (?) King of Denmark, son of Gorm "den Gamle/the Old" Haraldsson (?) King of Denmark and Thyra "Danebod" (?) of Jutland, Queen of Denmark,
;
His 1st wife.3,4,2,5
      ; Per Genealogy.EU (Denmark 1): “A2. Harald "Bluetooth-Blaatand", King of Denmark and Norway (970-991), *ca 910, +before 988/991; 1m: Gunhild N; 2m: Tove (possibly a dau.of Pr Mistiwoj of the Wends)”.6

; Per Med Lands:
     "HARALD Gormsen, son of GORM "den Gamle/the Old" King of Denmark & his wife Tyre "Danebod" ([925/35]-Jomsborg 1 Dec [986/87], bur Roskilde Cathedral[154]). Adam of Bremen records that "filium autem regis [=Worm] Haroldum" succeeded as ruler in Denmark[155]. Saxo Grammaticus names Harald as son of Tyre[156]. The Chronicon Roskildense names "Gorm pater Haraldi", specifying that "Haraldus" reigned for 15 years during the life of his father and 50 years after his father died, and was known as "Blatan sive Clac Harald", on the other hand a later passage specifies that Harald succeeded his father Gorm[157]. He succeeded his father before 950 as HARALD I "Blåtand/Bluetooth" King of Denmark. Snorre records that "King Harald Gormson" ruled in Denmark when the sons of King Eirik " Blodøks" sought refuge there in [955][158]. According to Snorre, he invaded Norway in 965 after the death of King Harald II, supported by Jarl Haakon Sigurdson, Harald Gudrodson "Grenske" and other Norwegian exiles[159]. He effectively made himself ruler of Norway, but returned to Denmark after leaving Jarl Haakon in Norway as his regent[160]. Emperor Otto invaded Jutland and defeated King Harald, who took refuge at Limafjord on the island of Marsey where he was converted to Christianity by Bishop Poppo after agreeing a truce with the emperor[161]. Adam of Bremen records that King Harald submitted to Emperor Otto and was baptised "cum uxore Gunhild et filio parvulo"[162]. Adam of Bremen names "Suein Otto, filius magni Haroldi regis Danorum" when recording that he deposed and expelled his father who fled to "civitatem Sclavorum quæ Iumne dicitur" where King Harald died from his wounds. Adam specifies that his body was repatriated to Roskilde for burial in the church of the Holy Trinity which he had built, that King Harald had ruled for 50 years and that he died "in festivitate omnium sanctorum"[163]. His son Svend rebelled against him and forced his father to flee to Jomsburg (now Wolin) where he died from wounds received while counter-attacking his son's forces[164]. Guillaume of Jumièges records that “Aigroldus rex Danorum” was expelled from his kingdom by "filio suo...Sveno" and was received in Normandy by “dux” [Guillaume Comte de Normandie] who granted him “Constantiensem comitatum”[165], although this is evidently anachronistic as Duke Guillaume died in 942. Guillaume of Jumièges records that Louis IV King of the West Franks, after the death of Richard´s father, marched on Rouen, was received by “Rodulphus et Bernardus atque Anslech totius Normannici ducatus tutores”, and captured Richard, who was taken to Laon but was freed by “Osmundus...consilio cum Yvone patre Willelmi de Belismo” and taken to “Silvanectis” where “Bernardus...comes” protected “nepotem suum Richardum”[166], a passage dated to [945] from the context. According to King Olav Trygvason's Saga, King Harald defeated his son but died from wounds received in the battle[167]. Modern-day "Bluetooth" computer technology was named after King Harald, his union of Denmark and Norway being considered by the inventors, for some reason, as analogous with the wire-free linking of computer devices[168].
     "m firstly ([before 960]) GUNHILD, daughter of ---. Adam of Bremen names Gunhild as wife of King Harald when recording that the couple were baptised with their small son[169]. 965.
     "m secondly TOVE, daughter of [MSTIVOJ] & his wife --- (-[990]). Her marriage and parentage are confirmed by a Runic stone at Sönder Vissing, Denmark which records that "Tufa let gera [make] kuml [monument], Mistiuis do´tter,ept [daughter] Mo´thur [mother] sina.Kona [queen] Haralds hins Goda,Gorms sonar"[170]. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[171] she was Tove, daughter of Mstivoj the Wendish prince. The name of Tove´s father, "Mistiuis", on the Runic stone bears some similarity to Mstivoj. However, one difficulty is the apparent chronological discrepancy. The only other reference to Mstivoj is dated to 1000 (see MECKLENBURG) and gives no idea about his age at the time. Nor is there any indication of the date of Tove´s marriage, although it appears unlikely that she married much later than 980 considering the date her husband died. This would place her birth in [960] which, in turn, would mean that Mstivoj would have been over 60 years old when he is mentioned in 1000. This is not impossible, but it seems a little surprising. Another possibility is that she was Tove of Poland, daughter of Mieszko I Prince of Poland. The name "Mieszko" is just as similar to "Mistiuis" as "Mstivoj". This would place her birth after 966, later than suggested above, assuming that she was Mieszko´s daughter by his wife Dobrava of Bohemia. If this hypothesis is correct, Tove could have been the sister of the first wife of King Harald´s son, King Svend, implying a father/son double marriage with two sisters. This would place King Svend´s marriage rather earlier than the date suggested below, but the idea is not impossible.
     "[m [thirdly] ([984/85]) GYRITHA of Sweden, sister of STYRBJÖRN "den Starke/the Strong" King of Sweden, daughter of ---. This marriage is only referred to by Saxo Grammaticus, who says that King Styrbjörn had sought help from King Harald after being deposed as king of Sweden by his cousin and granted Harald his sister in marriage[172].]
     "King Harald I had six children, maybe all by his first wife although this is not certain:
1. HAKON Haraldsen (-before 987).
2. SVEND Haraldsen ([960]-Gainsborough 3 Feb 1014, bur in England, later removed to Roskilde Cathedral).
3. TYRE Haraldsdatter (-18 Sep [1000]).
4. GUNHILD Haraldsdatter (-murdered in England 13 Nov 1002).
5. MO Haraldsdatter (-[1015]).
6. THORGNY Haraldsdatter."

Gunhilda (?) of Wessex died after 1094; Ashley says d. aft 1094; Med Lands says d. aft 1093.1,4
      ; Per Genealogics: "Gunnhild was the younger daughter of Harold of Wessex and his mistress Eadgyth Swannesha. Her father was elected king of England and crowned on 5 January 1066. However after the Battle of Hastings, Gunnhild took refuge in Wilton abbey and, according to Archbishop Anselm, later on was the wife or concubine of Alan, count of Brittany, lord of Richmond. That Gunnhild married and had a daughter, at the moment, is only conjecture. Sadly, proof may never be found."3

Canute III Lavard "the Pious" (?) King of Wenden/So. Jutland was buried in 1131 at Sankt Bendts Kirke, Ringsted, Ringsted Kommune, Sjælland, Denmark; From Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     12 Mar 1096, Roskilde, Roskilde Kommune, Sjælland, Denmark
     DEATH     7 Jan 1130 (aged 33), Ringsted, Ringsted Kommune, Sjælland, Denmark
     Danish prince and duke, Canute Lavard, was posthumously elevated to the stature of saint in the roman catholic church. He was the only legitimate son of King Erik Evergood Svendsson of Denmark and consort Boedil Thurgotsdatter. As a minor he was bypassed in the election of 1104. He grew up in close contact with the noble family of hvide, who were among his most eager supporters. In 1115, his uncle, King Niels of Denmark, placed him in charge of the duchy of Schleswig (jarl af sønderjyll) in order to end the attacks of the slavic obotrites. During the next fifteen years he fulfilled his duty of establishing peace in the border area, and was thereafter titled Duke of Holstein (hertug af Holsten) and became a vassal of the holy roman empire. He seemed to have been the first member of the danish royal family who was attracted by the knightly ideals and habits of medieval Germany; indicated by the changing of his title to duke of Schleswig. Many mighty enemies of his were acquired among the danish princes and magnates, who apparently questioned his loyalty and feared his bond with Emperor Lothair the Third, who had recognized him as sovereign over the western wends. King Niels and his son, Magnus the Strong, were reportedly alarmed at Canute's recognition by the emperor. On January 7, 1131, Canute was trapped in the Haraldsted Horest (haraldsted skov) near Ringsted in Zealand and supposedly murdered by Magnus. Ringsted Abbey, one of the earliest benedictine houses in Denmark, became his initial resting place. In 1157, his remains were moved into a new chapel at St. Bendt's church in Ringsted, the former ringsted abbey. A chapel was erected at the site of his death during medieval times but disappeared after the reformation. The ruins were rediscovered in 1883. A large cross was fashioned as a memorial to him in 1902 near where he died. After his passing, the obotrite lands were partitioned between Pribislav and Niklot (1090 to 1160), chiefs of the obotrites. Some consider his death to be a murder committed by Magnus; others attribute it to Niels himself. The death provoked a civil war that lasted intermittently until 1157. The war ended only with the victory of Canute's son Valdemar the First. The fate of Canute and his son's victory formed the background for his canonisation in 1170, which was requested by Valdemar. His feast day (Knutsdagen) is celebrated on the day of his death, January 7.
     Canute Lavard was married to Ingeborg of Kiev. They had four children:
1. Margaret, married stig hvitaledr
2. Christina (born 1118), married (1133) Magnus the fourth of Norway
3. Catherine, married Pribislav Henry, Duke of Mecklenburg
4. King Valdemar the first of Denmark (born 1130 to 1140).
