Note to Sturl Hryn 21II

[1] allvaldr ‘mighty ruler’: This is the fourth time that Sturla uses this word in the poem. Here, as in st. 20, it is used deliberately to call attention to the fact that Hákon was a sovereign ruler, the most powerful king in the history of Norway, and recognised as such throughout Europe.
