Konung drápum fyrstan,
kurum land þaðra,
hersar oss áhönd gengu,
hræðslu það vissi;
vágum ór skógi
þannz vildum syknan,
settum þann sælan
er sér né áttit. (eddic or germanic)
(‘First we killed a king there, chose land in that place;
earls submitted to us—this demonstrated their fear;
by fighting we brought from outlawry those we wished to rescue,
we gave any man a fortune who had no wealth of his own.
