Þorbjǫrn skakkaskáld (Þskakk)

12th century; volume 2; ed. Kari Ellen Gade;

Erlingsdrápa (Erldr) - 3

Þorbjǫrn skakkaskáld ‘Skakki’s Poet’ (Þskakk) is unknown. Finnur Jónsson (Skj) gives his nationality as Icel., but that is conjectural. According to Skáldatal (SnE 1848-87, III, 255, 257, 264, 266, 277-8, 281) he composed about Jarl Erlingr skakki ‘the Tilting’ Kyrpinga-Ormsson (d. 1179), Erlingr’s son Magnús (d. 1184) and Sverrir Sigurðarson (d. 1202). Only the three sts from his poetry about Erlingr survive.
