Ingegerd of Norway

 

Ingegerd of Norway

Ingegerd Haraldsdotter of Norway (Old Norse: Ingigerðr Haraldsdóttir, 1046–1120) was a medieval Scandinavian Queen, Princess of Norway and the Queen consort first of King Olaf I of Denmark (died 1095) and second of King Philip of Sweden (died 1118).

Life

Ingegerd Haraldsdotter was the daughter of King Harald Hardrada of Norway and Elisiv of Kiev and thereby the great granddaughter of King Olof Skötkonung of Sweden. She was first married to Prince Olof of Denmark, in approximately 1067, in a marriage arranged as a part of the peace treaty between Denmark and Norway; to further strengthen the alliance, Olof's half-sister, Ingerid of Denmark, married King Olav Kyrre, who was the brother of Queen Ingegerd.[1] Ingegerd became queen of Denmark when Olof became king in 1086.

After his death in 1095, the Queen Dowager travelled to Sweden, where she married Prince Philip of Sweden in 1095 or 1096. He became king in 1105, making her queen a second time. There is no known issue from the second marriage. She was widowed in 1118. The years of her birth and death are not confirmed, but she is known to have survived her second spouse.
