  • Notes 
    • Marriage* Thyra of Denmark married Styrbjorn Starki of Sweden, son of Olaf King of Sweden and Ingelberg of Sula. This was the first marriage for Thyra.6,7,4
      Marriage* circa 985 Thyra of Denmark married Boleslav I of Bohemia and Poland circa 985. Jones says that he was old and a heathen when he married Thyra. She ran away from him.!!!!6,8,4
      Marriage* Thyra of Denmark married Olav I King of Norway.3
      !AInfoNew* Stuart's "Royalty For Commoners" (369:37).
      From pp.136-138 of Gwyn Jones' "A History of the Vikings":
      "The ruling families of Scandinavia had many close relationships. OLAF SKOTONUNG of Sweden was Svein's stepson; Olaf Tryggvason of Norway was his brother-in-law. Svein's sister, Thyri, had first been married to Styrbjorn Starki, the unsuccessful invader of Sweden, and after his death was bestowed on BOLESLAV THE POLE, King of Wendland, whom she detested, first because he was a heathen and second because he was old. In her distress she fled to Norway and married Olaf Tryggvason, who was neither."

      Note that Brian Tompsett's database at his University of Hull website indicates that MEISZKO I, KING OF POLAND was actually the "Boleslaus the Pole, King of Wendland" - very confusing as his son was
      named BOLESLAUS I, King of Poland. In view of Jones' comment regarding the comparative elderliness of Thrya's second husband, this would, at first sight appear to make sense. However, see notes on Thyra's husband, Bolesslaw, for the explaination that Thyra's 2nd husband was not of the royal Polish family at all.4
      Death* 18 September 1000
      Thyra died on 18 September 1000.7,4
