Note to Þhorn Harkv 10I

[1] leiddisk þá fyr Lúfu ‘grew tired then ... against Lúfa (“Shaggy-locks”) [Haraldr]’: A stanza with this same first line (Þjóð Har 4) is attributed to Þjóðólfr ór Hvini in Flat (Flat 1860-8, I, 574). Sueti (1884, 17) argues that it is this similarity that led to the attribution of sts 7-11 to Þjóðólfr in Fsk and Flat. On the nickname Lúfa ‘Shaggy-locks’, which here functions like a pers. n., see biography of Haraldr in ‘Ruler biographies’, in Introduction to this volume.
