Note to Þul Kálfv 1III

[8] skati Haddingja ‘the champion of the Haddingjar <legendary family> [= Helgi]’: In the short prose section following HHund II (NK 161), it is said that Helgi and Sigrún were reborn as Helgi ‘Haddingiaskaði’ (presumably Haddingjaskati) and Kára. Helgi Haddingjaskati is also mentioned in Ættartölur (Flat 1860-8, I, 24), where he is among the followers of one of the Haddingjar, the family that ruled Telemark and Hallingdal (ON Haddingjadalr) in Norway.
