Notes:

Emund the Old, Emund den gamle, Old Swedish: Æmunðær slemæ (king of Sweden 1050-1060)[1] was an illegitimate son of Olof Skötkonung. Emund succeeded his brother Anund Jakob ca 1050 which rendered him the cognomen, the Old. He was also called the "Slemme" as he actively opposed the priests from the Archbishopric of Bremen in favour of the English missionary Osmundus.

The Westrogothic law says that he was a disagreeable man when wanting to pursue a goal, and that he marked the border between Sweden and Denmark.

He was the last king of the House of Munsö. Adam of Bremen relates that his son Anund Emundsson died when he pillaged in Terra Feminarum because the natives poisoned the water. He was to be succeeded by Stenkil and his house.
