In the autumn of 1227, Hákon learned that Knútr Hákonarson’s men in Lödöse had killed and plundered Jarl Skúli Bárðarson’s envoys to King Valdimarr of Denmark, and he sent men to retaliate. Knútr had left men in a stronghold, which Hákon’s men destroyed and plundered.

In 8, the st. is attributed to Óláfr hvítaskáld (Ólhvít).
