 ungr ‘as a youth’: Lit. ‘young’. There is certainly some truth in this statement, because Ingi was only one year old when this battle toook place (see Note to Ív Sig 36/1, 3). According to Hkr (ÍF 28, 305), Ingi’s supporter, Þjóstólfr Álason, carried Ingi inside his tunic during the battle: Svá er sagt, at Þjóstólfr Álason hafði Inga konung í kiltingu sér, meðan orrosta var, ok gekk undir merki, ok kom Þjóstólfr í mikla nauð af erfiði ok atsókn, ok er þat mál manna, at þá hafi Ingi fengit vanheilendi þat, er hann hafði allan aldr síðan, ok knýtti hrygginn, en annarr fótrinn var skemmri en annarr ok svá afllítill, at hann var illa gengr, meðan hann lifði ‘It is told that Þjóstólfr Álason had King Ingi inside his tunic during the battle, and he advanced beneath the standard, and Þjóstólfr was hard pressed because of the strain and the attack. And people say that Ingi then got that disability which he had for the rest of his life. His back was crooked, and one leg was shorter than the other and so weak that he had problems walking as long as he lived’.
