Ýmist hann hugði
jafnlanga stund,
það var eigi
árar títt
að frá konungdóm
kvánir gengi;
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.
