Ívarr Ingimundarson (Ív)

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

Sigurðarbálkr (Sig) - 45

Details from Ívarr’s life are known from his þáttr in Mork (1928-32, 354-6) and in H-Hr (Fms 7, 103-6). He was an Icelander of good family and could have been the son of Ingimundr inn gamli ‘the Old’ Þorsteinsson of Vatnsdalur, who had a son called Ívarr (see LH 1894-1901, II, 59-60). According to Skáldatal (SnE 1848-87, III, 254-5, 262-3, 276), Ívarr composed about King Magnús berfœttr ‘Barelegs’ Óláfsson (d. 1103) and Magnús’s sons Eysteinn (d. 1122) and Sigurðr jórsalafari ‘Jerusalem-farer’ (d. 1130), as well as about Sigurðr slembidjákn ‘Fortuitous-deacon’ (?) (d. 1139). Only his poem about the latter survives. See also SnE 1848-87, III, 619-22.

Gerðu skírslu        of skjǫldungs kyn
fimm byskupar,        þeirs framarst þóttu.
Svá bar raunir,        at ríks konungs
þess vas inn mildi        Magnús faðir.

Fimm byskupar, þeirs þóttu framarst, gerðu skírslu of kyn skjǫldungs. Svá bar raunir, at inn mildi Magnús vas faðir þess ríks konungs.

Five bishops, who were deemed most distinguished, conducted the ordeal concerning the lord’s kinship. Proofs were given that the generous Magnús was the father of that mighty king.
