Osbeorn (died c. 1054), given the nickname Bulax, was the son of
Siward, Earl of Northumbria (died 1055). He is one of two known
sons - probably the older - of Siward. While it is normally assumed
he was the son of Siward's Bamburgh wife lffl d, it has been
suggested by William Kapelle that Osbeorn's mother was not lffl d.
The nickname "Bulax" probably represents the Old Norse term for
"Poleaxe." According to the most reliable sources, he died at the
Battle of the Seven Sleepers, fought somewhere in Scotland between
Siward and Mac Bethad mac Findla ch, King of the Scots, in 1054.
This battle was fought somewhere in Scotland north of the Firth of
Forth, and is known variously as the "Battle of the Seven Sleepers"
or the "Battle of Dunsinane."
