  General Notes:

Edla was Olav's concubine. She came from Vendland.

From Snorre Sturlasson, Olav den helliges saga:

"89. OF THE SWEDISH KING'S CHILDREN.
This Swedish king, Olaf Eirikson, had first a concubine who was called Edla, a daughter of an earl of Vindland, who had been captured in war, and therefore was called the king's slave-girl. Their children were Emund, Astrid, Holmfrid. ..."
