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.

Vann Róms gǫtu        ræsir Þrœnda
fœti farna,        sás frama drýgði.
Sótti síðan        ok synðum hrauð
hers oddviti        helga dóma.

{Ræsir Þrœnda}, sás drýgði frama, vann farna gǫtu Róms fœti. Síðan sótti oddviti hers helga dóma ok hrauð synðum.

{The ruler of the Þrœndir} [NORWEGIAN KING = Sigurðr], who increased his honour, travelled the road to Rome on foot. Then the leader of the army visited holy shrines and expiated his sins.

Mss: Mork(32v) (Mork)

Editions: Skj: Ívarr Ingimundarson, Sigurðarbǫlkr 2: AI, 495, BI, 467, Skald I, 229; Mork 1867, 203, Mork 1928-32, 408, Andersson and Gade 2000, 368, 491 (Sslemb).

Context: From Scotland Sigurðr proceeded to Rome, Palestine and the River Jordan, visiting holy shrines.

Notes: [All]: See Note to st. 3 [All]. Hkr (ÍF 28, 297) places the pilgrimage before Sigurðr’s stays in Orkney and Scotland, whereas Orkn (ÍF 34, 217) agrees with Mork in describing his progress from Scotland to Rome.
