This st. (Anon (Mberf) 1)  is transmitted in mss , 39, E, J2ˣ and 42ˣ of MberfHkr, as well as in H and Hr (H-Hr). is the main ms.

Ungr kom Hôkon hingat;
hanns beztr alinn manna
frægðarmildr á foldu;
fór með Steigar-Þóri.
Syni Óláfs bauð síðan
sjalfr um Nóreg halfan
mildr, en Magnús vildi
málsnjallr hafa allan.

 

Young Hákon came here; he, generous with glory, is born the best of men on earth; he came with Steigar-Þórir. Then the generous one himself gave {Óláfr’s son} [= Magnús] power over half of Norway, but eloquent Magnús wished to have it all.

context: On the death of Óláfr kyrri ‘the Quiet’ Haraldsson (1093), his son Magnús berfœttr ‘Barelegs’ is elected king in Viken, while the people of Trøndelag and Opplandene take Magnús’s cousin, Hákon Þórisfóstri ‘Foster-son of Þórir’ Magnússon, as their king. Then this st. is recited in Trondheim.
