     Born the 25thday of January, 1282 into a merchant family in the city of Reykjavik, Iceland. Proprietors of a shipping company called the White TreeShipping Company supplying the people of Iceland with many needful items from eastern Europe. (Father) Gunnar, an ambitious farmer merchant, descendant from Kingdom of Norway and (Mother) Regina, a portman's daughter from Bruges, France. Being taught all the things a woman should know about taking care of the clan, I was taught the ways of shipping and trade.

     In the summer of 1295, the first of many shipping voyages begins and as my skills increased so did my travels. Eventually throughout my life I would frequently stop in such ports as Bergen, Inverness, Paris, Marrakesh,Palermo/Messina and Alexandria. The most common items we traded and shipped were dried fish, trees/lumber, iron, coal, wool, textiles, soap, salt, sugar and cereal grains such as wheat. Most voyages could last from a couple of weeks to months.

     I would throughout my years marry twice and have 5 children. In all my travels, I would see many wonders and various cultures but also much death and wars and disagreements.  During my life I will witness Christianity start to takeover the ways of religion in Iceland, Volcanoes erupting, Scotland fights for its freedom strongly, a long conflict arise between France and England, a scientist and his great alchemy inventions, a writer and his works of an Inferno, horrific battles and executions, Crowns will rise and fall.

     In the end, my traveling ways are my doom as I and most of the crew fall ill to the plague in the fall of 1351. Our ship does not return to Iceland as to not spread the wretched black death to our lovely Isle. Ironically, in 1402, the Plague does eventually reach the shores of  Iceland, leaving in its wake a destructive path of nearly one third the population dead, only 30-40,000 survive. And yet through all this our legacy lives on.
