Name: Benedicta Ebbesdatter
Change Date: 27 NOV 2008
With his first wife, Danish noblewoman Benedicta Ebbesdatter (of Galen, apparently not Hvide as otherwise alleged, b c 1165/70, d 1200), whom he married before 1190 when yet living in Denmark, Sverker had at least one well-attested daughter, Helena, as well as possibly further children, such as Karl (who died in adolescence at the latest, if ever lived; but his existence is from the record that he is alleged to have married a daughter of king Sverre of Norway), and possibly even two other daughters (if they existed, their names are given by reconstructive history research as Margaret and Kristina - however they may just have been Sverker's first wife's kinswomen). Later pretensions of the House of Mecklenburg claim that Sverker's daughter (if he had such) Christina was their ancestress, wife of Henry II of Mecklenburg ("Henry Borwin" in some later texts).
