Note to Eskál Vell 15I

[4] ásmegir ‘the sons of the Æsir’: I.e. the Æsir, the gods (Finnur Jónsson 1891a, 167). Olsen (1962a, 44-5) refers to a parallel in Vsp 62 and 63, where a second generation of Æsir, sons of the first, found a new world. This would mean Hákon’s reign would be compared to the renewal of the earth after the end of the world.
