Þat veit hverr,
at Haraldr gilli
vas samfast
sex vetr konungr,
áðr * lofðung
af lífdǫgum
tírarlaust
tóku fyrðar.
Sás at Krists
kirkju jarðaðr
í Bjǫrgyn
bróðir jǫfra.

Hverr veit þat, at Haraldr gilli vas konungr sex vetr samfast, áðr * fyrðar tóku lofðung af lífdǫgum tírarlaust. Sá bróðir jǫfra [e]s jarðaðr at Kristskirkju í Bjǫrgyn.

Everyone knows that Haraldr gilli (‘Servant’) was king continuously for six years before men deprived that lord of his life without glory. That brother of princes is buried in Kristkirken in Bergen.

Notes: [All]: Haraldr gilli Magnússon was murdered in Bergen on 14 December 1136 by his half-brother, Sigurðr slembidjákn Magnússon, and Sigurðr’s men. See Mork 1928-32, 411-13, Fsk (ÍF 29, 327-9), MbHgHkr (ÍF 28, 300-2). Kristkirken (Kristskirkja, Christ’s Church) in Bergen was erected by Óláfr kyrri Haraldsson (see ÍF 28, 204). — [2] gilli ‘(“Servant”)’: Haraldr’s full nickname was gillikristr ‘Servant of Christ’, the first element of which is from OIr. gilla ‘servant’.
