Euphemia was most likely the daughter of Vitslav II, Prince of Rügen (1240–1302). Older Norwegian historiography claims she was the daughter of Günther, Count of Arnstein and Prince Vitslav her maternal grandfather. This claim has, however, been refuted. Euphemia married Håkon V of Norway in the spring of 1299.

The Principality of Rügen (German: Fürstentum Rügen) was a Danish principality consisting of the island of Rügen and the adjacent mainland from 1168 until 1325. It was governed by a local dynasty of princes of the Wizlawiden (House of Wizlaw) dynasty. For at least part of this period, Rügen was subject to the Holy Roman Empire.
In 1219, Vitslav took part in a campaign by his feudal lord, the King of Denmark Valdemar II, to Estonia.
