The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Dauðr varð inn húnski,
drap þá brátt kosti,
strangt var angr ungri
ekkju nafn hljóta;
kvöl þótti kvikri
að koma íhús Atla;
átti áðr kappi,
illr var sá missir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘The southern prince died, my luck was speedily destroyed;
bitter torment it was for a young girl to be given the name of a widow;
it seemed anguish for a survivor to come to Atli’s house;
she was married to a hero before—that was a cruel loss.
)
