His wife was Hild, the daughter of the king of Vestfold , Erik Agnarsson. Erik had no son, so Eystein inherited Vestfold.
Eystein died while pillaging in Varna . King Skjöld of Varna, a great warlock , arrived at the beach and saw the sails of Eystein's ships. He waved his cloak and blew into it which caused a boom of one ship to swing and hit Eystein so that he fell overboard and drowned. His body was salvaged and buried in a mound. Eystein was succeeded by his son Halfdan the Mild .
Eystein married Hild of Vestfold, daughter of Erik Agnarsson and Unknown.
