Illugi bryndœlaskáld (Ill)

11th century; volume 2; ed. Kari Ellen Gade;

III. Lausavísa (Lv) - 1

Nothing is known about Illugi (Ill), but his nickname bryndœlaskáld ‘Poet of the People of Brynjudalur’ indicates that he either came from Brynjudalur in southern Iceland or composed about people from that region (see SnE 1848-87, III, 595-9; LH 1894-1901, I, 634). Skáldatal (SnE 1848-87, III, 254, 262, 275) lists him among Haraldr Sigurðarson’s poets.
