Þetta er þiggjanda         þýjar barni,
barni þýjar,         þótt sé borinn konungi.
Þá hornungr         á haugi sat,
er öðlingr         arfi skipti.

Þetta er þiggjanda þýjar barni, barni þýjar, þótt sé borinn konungi. Þá sat hornungr á haugi, er öðlingr skipti arfi.

This is acceptable for a servant-woman’s child, child of a servant-woman, though he may be born to a king. The bastard sat on the mound, when the prince was dividing the inheritance.
