When Knud den Hellige was killed, Oluf was elected king. According to Saxo Oluf stood behind a conspiracy together with the noblemen, who killed Knud den Hellige.
Oluf Hungerís years of governing are marked by famine and poverty, which has given Oluf his byname. The famine was interpreted by the church as punishment for the killing of Knud den Hellige.

Oluf was son of Svend Estridsen, and was married to Ingegerd of Norway. 
They had the children:

Magnus (? - 1090)
Svend (? - 1097) married to Tora Torbergsdatter, second time to Ellisif of Russia.
