Burislav, Burisleif, Burysław is the name of mythical Wendish king from Scandinavian sagas who is said to rule over Wendland. He is said to be father of Gunhilda and maybe also Sigrid the Haughty. There are three possible hypothesis over his identity: first, that there actually was Slavic prince of that name; second, that this was name given by saga authors to any Slavic prince; third, that he is a compound person, combining two Polish rulers: Mieszko I of Poland and Boleslaus I of Poland.

Thyri, inexpressibly disinclined to wed an aged heathen of that stamp, pleaded hard with her brother; but the Double-Bearded was inexorable; Thyri’s wailings and entreaties went for nothing.
Old Burislav, at sight of her, blazed out into marriage-feast of supreme magnificence, and was charmed to see her; but Thyri would not join the marriage party; refused to eat with it or sit with it at all.
The other fact is, that Thyri had, by inheritance or covenant, not depending on her marriage with old Burislav, considerable properties in Wendland; which, she often reflected, might be not a little behooveful to her here in Norway, where her civil-list was probably but straitened.
