Her marriage was arranged as a part of reconciliation between the Bagler and Birkebeiner parties: In 1208, with no side looking able to achieve victory, bishop Nikolas and the other bishops brokered a peace deal between the Baglers and the Birkebeiners. At the settlement of Kvitsøy, the Birkebeiner king, Inge II of Norway, recognized Philip's rule over the eastern third of the country in return for Philip giving up the title of king and recognizing Inge as his overlord. To seal the agreement, Philip was to marry king Sverre's daughter, Christina.
