Ýmist hann hugði
það var eigi
að frá konungdóm
nam hann sér Högna
heita að rúnum,
þar átti hann
allz fulltrúa. (eddic or germanic)
(Different plans he weighed up for hours at a time,
it was not customary in those days
for women to abandon the royal rank;
he had Hogni called to take counsel,
for he knew him a trusted friend in all.
