Lausavísa

According to Hkr (ÍF 26, 123) and ÓH (1941, I, 51-2), Hildr (Hildr) was the daughter of the Norwegian Hrólfr nefja ‘Nose’ and the wife of Rǫgnvaldr jarl Eysteinsson of Mœrr (Møre). Orkn (ÍF 34, 7) gives her name as Ragnhildr Hrólfsdóttir nefju. She was the mother of Gǫngu-Hrólfr ‘Walking Hrólfr’, the alleged founder of the duchy of Normandy (see ÍF 26, 124-5 n. 1). The following lausavísa is the only poetry attributed to Hildr, who lived around 900.
