Fekk lofsæll
land með hringum
Óláfr einn
allt inn digri.
Réð hróðmǫgr
Haralds ins grenska
fimtán vetr
foldu grýttri.

 

The glorious Óláfr inn digri (‘the Stout’) alone received the entire land from border to border. {The glory-son of Haraldr inn grenski (‘the one from Grenland’)} [= Óláfr] ruled the rocky ground for fifteen years.

notes: The years of Óláfr’s reign given here are 1015-30 (or 1014-29), but he went into exile in 1028, first to Sweden and then to Russia (see ÍF 27, lxxxi-lxxxii, 326). — [2] með hringum ‘from border to border’: This expression (lit. ‘from rings to rings’) usually describes a ship being cleared from stem to stern (i.e. between the ringed ornaments that could be attached to the stem and the stern of a ship). See also Arn Hryn 15/5 and Arn Magndr 14/5. It is used here in a territorial sense. A more common expression in a non-nautical context would be ‘from end to end’ (með endum; see Anon (HSig) 2/1). — [6]: Haraldr inn grenski was the son of Guðrøðr Bjarnason, the grandson of Haraldr hárfagri (see Genealogy II.1.d in ÍF 28). Grenland roughly comprised present-day Telemark and Bamble in southern Norway (see Storm 1900, 128 n. 1).
