Nope. There is no evidence as to AElfgifu's parentage (and this
marriage, between the royal house and one of the two most prominent
families of the time) would almost certainly have been mentioned.

Nope. There is no evidence that any such daughter of AElfgar existed.
He has three documented childen: Eadgar, Morcar, and Eadgyth. Anything
else is 'hypothesis'.
