konungr jarla ‘king among jarls’: (a) Cf. konungr sprunda ‘king among women’, Oddi Lv 2/4, and the synonymous konungr vífa, referring to Mary, Anon Mdr 5/2VII. (b) To take drótt jarla ‘jarl’s retinue’ (ll. 1, 2) as a unit would leave konungr ‘king’ as a designation for Þorfinnr, but that would be inappropriate. It is not clear from Snorri’s first citation (Context above) whether he had gramr ‘(fierce) lord’ (l. 4) in mind, or konungr, and if konungr, whether alone or qualified by jarla.
