Botvid was the lover of Ava Unghanse (also spelled Ung-Hanse), the main character, who was portrayed by Saga Björling. Ava is based upon a certain young woman that was accused of and punished for betraying the Swedish isle of Gotland to Valdemar IV Atterdag (1320 - 1375), King of Denmark.
Whether the story is true or not, and whether Botvid, Ava and her father, Sigurd Unghanse (also spelled Ung-Hanse), are even historical or not, that is questionable yet. [August 2012]
