|Queen consort of Denmark|
|Successor||Tove of the Obotrites|
|House||House of Munsö (by birth)
House of Denmark (by marriage)
|Father||Olof (II) Björnsson|
Gyrid was the daughter of King Olof (II) Björnsson of Sweden and Queen Ingeborg Thrandsdotter. She was not the sister of the Swedish throne claimant Styrbjörn Starke, who was a Norwegian that used a false claim to be the son of former king Olof (II) Björnsson (who was already dead) in order to challenge Olof's brother Erik for the Swedish throne.
Gyrid is thought to have married Swein Forkbeard, who actually supported the previously mentioned Norwegian in his invasion attempt of Sweden.
