Ráðvǫnd dóttir ræsis kom til {{{nykra borgar} næfr}lands}, gǫfuglynd, góðrar tíðar allra helzt Íslendingum, þvít hugrakkr einkasonr systur jǫfra, hjartaprúðr vinr ýta, sás hefir orðlof allra fira, * fylgði henni,

The counsel-heeding daughter of the ruler came to {the land {of the roof-shingle {of the water-monsters’ stronghold}}} [(lit. ‘roof-shingle-land of the water-monsters’ stronghold’) SEA > ICE > = Iceland], noble-minded, at a good time above all for the Icelanders, because the upright only son of the sovereigns’ sister, the proud-hearted friend of the people who possesses all men’s words of praise, accompanied her.

Mss: Flat(144vb)

Readings: [10] henni * fylgði: henni at fylgði Flat    [14] allra: alla Flat

Editions: Skj: [Anonyme digte og vers XII], [2]. Nóregs konunga-tal 75-76: AI, 588-9, BI, 588-9, Skald I, 287; Flat 1860-8, II, 527-8.

Notes: [3] næfr- ‘roof-shingle’: See Note to st. 4/8. — [4] nykra ‘of the water-monsters’’: The word nykr can mean both ‘water-monster’ and ‘hippopotamus’. Cf. the poetic peculiarity nykrat ‘monstrosity’ (SnE 1999, 7). — [10] * fylgði henni ‘accompanied her’: Both Skj B and Skald omit at (henni at fylgði; so Flat) and Finnur gives ‘survived’ as the meaning of fylgði. Fylgja is not attested in that meaning, however (see LP: fylgja; Fritzner: fylgja). Jón’s father, Loptr Sæmundarson, married Þóra Magnússdóttir in Norway (Stu 1878, I, 189), and Jón was fostered in Norway by Andréas Brúnsson and his wife Solveig (see MbHgHkr, ÍF 28, 288). This st. most likely refers to the return of Jón from Norway in the company of his mother. Þóra died in 1175. — [14] allra (gen. pl.) ‘all’: Following Skj B, alla (f. acc. pl. or m. acc. pl.) ‘all’ has been emended to allra (g. pl.) because it modifies fira (m. gen. pl.) ‘men’.
