     BIRTH     unknown, Denmark
     DEATH     unknown, Denmark
     Thyra (correctly spelled Þyrvé) was the consort of King Gorm the Old of Denmark. She is believed to have led an army against the Germans. Gorm and Thyra were the parents of King Harald Bluetooth. Thyra was referred to as a woman of great prudence and was mainly responsible for building the Dannevirke on the southern border.
     According to popular tradition, her daughter was captured by trolls and carried off to a kingdom in the far north beyond Halogaland and Biarmaland.
     Tradition also has it that before Thyra consented to marry Gorm, she insisted he build a new house and sleep in it for the first three nights of winter and give her an account of his dreams those nights. The dreams were told at the wedding banquet and as recorded, imitate the dreams Pharaoh had that were interpreted by Joseph in Genesis. Oxen came out of the sea (bountiful harvest) and birds (glory of the king to be born).
     Gorm raised a memorial stone to Thyra at Jelling, which refers to her as tanmarka but, the 'Pride' or 'Ornament' of Denmark. Asteroid 115 Thyra is named in her honor.

     "GORM, son of [HARDEKNUD] & his wife his [wife] --- (-before 950, bur Jelling). The Chronicon Roskildense records that "[Swen] huius filii Gorm et Hartha Knut" invaded Denmark, killed "rege Danorum Haldano cum filiis eius" and divided the kingdom between them[136]. GORM "den Gamle/the Old" King of Denmark. Snorre names Gorm as father of Harald King of Denmark, and "King Hordaknut" as the latter's grandfather[137]. Adam of Bremen records that "Hardecnudth Wrm…crudelissimus" was ruler in Denmark, and that "Worm regem" was forced to sue for peace by Heinrich I King of Germany who captured "apud Sliaswich, quæ nunc Heidiba dicitur"[138], although as noted above it is unclear whether these passages both deal with the same individual "Hardeknud Gorm" or with two. The accuracy of the peace arrangements made with Germany is challenged by Danish historians[139]. Thietmar of Merseburg refers to "Knud I" King of Denmark in this respect[140], which appears to support the co-identity of Hardeknud and Gorm. The Chronicon Roskildense records that "Gorm crudelissimus rex" established his capital "apud Selandiam"[141].

     DEATH     unknown, Denmark
     Gorm the Old, also called Gorm the Sleepy. He was the first historically recognized King of Denmark, reigning from c.936 to his death c.958. He ruled from Jelling, and made the oldest of the Jelling Stones in honour of his wife Thyra. Gorm is the reported son of semi-legendary Danish king Harthacnut. Harthacnut came from Northmania to Denmark and seized power in the early 10th century. He deposed the young king Sigtrygg Gnupasson; reigning over Western Denmark. When Harthacnut died, Gorm ascended the throne.
     Gorm married Thyra and they were the parents of three sons, Toke, Canute and Harald, later King Harald Bluetooth.
     Gorm was first buried in the North Mound at Jelling. His son Harald Bluetooth became a christian in 960 and after his conversion, Harald had his father's body reburied in the church next to the now empty mound, and erected one of the now famous Jelling stones with this desciption "King Harald bade these memorials to be made after Gorm, his father, and Thyra, his mother. The Harald who won the whole of Denmark and Norway and turned the Danes to Christianity."

      ; Per Anderson email: "King Gorm "den Gamle/"the Old" of Jelling (or rather of the part of Denmark called Harsyssel, born around 875. Md. to: Thyra "Danebod", died before King Gorm."2

; Per Genealogics:
     “Gorm 'the Old' was king of Denmark from about 900 to about 940. He was born in the late 800s. It is claimed that he was the son of the legendary Danish king Harthacnut. Gorm's epithet relates to his status as the traditional 'head' of the Danish monarchy, the oldest in Europe. He did not live an especially long life, but his rule of 40 years is the longest of any Danish Viking monarch. _Saxo Grammaticus_ in the _Gesta Danorum_ asserts that Gorm was older than other monarchs and, having lived so long, was blind by the time his son Knud was killed. Records of earlier kings either were not available or discounted by royal historians. Gorm's name appears on the Jelling Stones, which was the definitive proof that historians of the past needed.
     “Gorm married Tyre Danebod, the daughter of a regional chief, probably from southern Jutland. Claims that Tyre was a daughter of King Harald Klak have been discounted due to the impossibility of the ages of the persons involved. The _Gesta Danorum_ claims that Tyre was the daughter of Aethelred, king of England. Gorm raised one of the great burial mounds at Jelling for her and the oldest Jelling stones to her. Gorm was the father of two sons, Knud and Harald, later Harald I Gormsen Blatand ('Bluetooth'), king of Denmark, and a daughter Gunhild.
     “Gorm's ancestry descends from Danes who ruled East Anglia, one of whom was named Guthrum, a form of the name Gorm. His father came to Denmark and deposed the young king Sigtrygg Gnupasson; when Harthacnut died, Gorm ascended the throne. Claims that he took it by force, or that he only ruled part of the peninsula of Jutland are almost certainly erroneous. Gorm's great-great-grandson Svend IV Estridsen, king of Denmark, referred to both Gorm and his father as kings of (all of) Denmark, not just parts of the country. His wife Tyre is credited with the completion of the Danevirk, a wall between Denmark's southern border and its unfriendly Saxon neighbours to the south. The wall was not new, but it was expanded with a ditch and earthen foundation topped by a timber stockade above it. The Danevirk ran between the Schlien and the Trende River across what is now Schleswig. Queen Tyre was memorialised after her death on one of the stones at Jelling by her husband. She was described simply as Denmark's Salvation (Danmarks Brod).
     “Arild Hvitfeldt's _Danmarks Riges Kronike_ explains how Gorm died. Of his two sons Gorm preferred the elder Knud, to Harald to the extent that he made an oath that the messenger who brought news of Knud's death would be executed. The two sons were Vikings in the truest sense, departing Denmark each summer to raid and pillage. Harald came back to the royal enclosure at Jelling with the news that Knud had been killed in an attempt to capture Dublin. Knud had been shot with a coward's arrow while watching some games at night. No one would tell the king in view of the oath he had made. Queen Tyre ordered the royal hall hung with black cloth and that no one was to say a single word. When Gorm entered the hall, he was astonished and asked what the mourning colours meant. Queen Tyre spoke up: 'Lord King, You had two falcons, one white and the other grey. The white one flew far afield and was set upon by other birds which tore off its beautiful feathers and is now useless to you. Meanwhile the grey falcon continues to catch fowl for the king's table.' Gorm understood the metaphor immediately and cried out, 'My son is surely dead, since all of Denmark mourns!' 'You have said it, your majesty,' Tyre announced, 'Not I, but what you have said is true.' According to the story Gorm so grieved over Knud's death that he died the following day. This would seem to contradict information on the Jelling Stones which seems to point to Queen Tyre's death before Gorm died. Historians have always suggested that Gorm was buried first in Queen Tyre's grave mound at Jelling, and later moved by his son Harald into the original wooden church in Jelling.
     “His skeleton is believed to have been found at the site of the first Christian church of Jelling. During the reign of Gorm, most Danes still worshipped the Norse gods, but during the reign of his son Harald, Denmark officially converted to Christianity. Harald left the hill where Gorm had originally been interred as a memorial. Dendrochonological studies of the wood in Gorm's burial chamber date the year of his death to 958.”.3

; Per Genealogy.EU (Denmark): “*** King Gorm may also have been father of the following two kids:
A3. Gunhild, +after 970; m.King Erik "Bloodaxe" of Norway and Northumbria (+954)
A4. Toke Gormson, +k.a.985
B1. Asbjorn Tokeson, +k.a.985."1 EDV-29 GKJ-29.

     "GORM, son of [HARDEKNUD] & his wife his [wife] --- (-before 950, bur Jelling). The Chronicon Roskildense records that "[Swen] huius filii Gorm et Hartha Knut" invaded Denmark, killed "rege Danorum Haldano cum filiis eius" and divided the kingdom between them[136]. GORM "den Gamle/the Old" King of Denmark. Snorre names Gorm as father of Harald King of Denmark, and "King Hordaknut" as the latter's grandfather[137]. Adam of Bremen records that "Hardecnudth Wrm…crudelissimus" was ruler in Denmark, and that "Worm regem" was forced to sue for peace by Heinrich I King of Germany who captured "apud Sliaswich, quæ nunc Heidiba dicitur"[138], although as noted above it is unclear whether these passages both deal with the same individual "Hardeknud Gorm" or with two. The accuracy of the peace arrangements made with Germany is challenged by Danish historians[139]. Thietmar of Merseburg refers to "Knud I" King of Denmark in this respect[140], which appears to support the co-identity of Hardeknud and Gorm. The Chronicon Roskildense records that "Gorm crudelissimus rex" established his capital "apud Selandiam"[141].
