Daughter of King Magnus III Barnlock and Queen Haelwig. 1288 engaged to King Eric VI Meanwith of Denmark, the marriage took place in Elsinburg in 1296 as a part of dynastic policies. Two years later her brother king Birger of Sweden married her husband's sister Princess Martha. Dispensation necessary for the marriage was not until 1297 because of conflicts between her spouse and Archbishop John Grand. Queen Ingiburga was described as beautiful and tender. She is not believed to have played any political role. She had eight sons who died as children, as well as six miscarriages. She and her husband were allies of her eldest brother King Birger and her sister-in-law Queen Martha of Sweden during the Swedish throne conflicts. In 1318, Queen Ingiburga gave birth to a son who lived: she showed him off to the public from her carriage, from which he fell from her grip, broke his neck and died. After this, she entered the convent of St. Clare in Roskilde. According to one legend she was forced to the convent by her husband, who blamed her for the death of their son, according to another because of the sorrow caused by the deaths of her brothers Dukes Eric and Waldemar in Sweden. In In 1319 she foretold the deaths of herself, her spouse and the archbishop and soon after died followed by her husband.
