The House of Stenkil was a dynasty on the Swedish throne from c. 1060 to c. 1125.[1] Stenkil probably originated from Västergötland.[2]

Cognatic offshoots:

  • c. 1125 – c 1130 Magnus I of Gothenland (the regnal list published by the royal court of Sweden includes him as a member of Stenkil dynasty), was son of Inge the Elder's daughter
  • c. 1150 – 1160 Eric IX of Sweden who was married with Christina, according to Norse legends daughter's daughter of Inge the Elder; this couple started the dynasty of Eric

  • 1160–61 Magnus (II) of Sweden (the regnal list published by the royal court of Sweden includes him as a member of Stenkil dynasty; some tend to call him as the "last" monarch of the House of Stenkil which however is a genealogically debatable concept), was the son of a daughter of Inge the Elder's son Ragvald.
