The grave of Viking female revealed many surprises

 It was long assumed that the grave was made for a woman, for a Viking queen or princess. Archaeological evidences spoke about a female, clothes and jewellery were typical for a female, but the luxurious sword gave a hint about a male.  The sword was so fine and luxurious that it has been a model for replicas sold under the topic "Sword of Suontaka Viking princess".  But genetic analyses  revealed that the buried one was not a typical man or woman, the remains showed signs of both, namely a chromosomal XXY structure.
