 gat (3rd pers. sg. pret. indic.) ‘begot’: The verb is sg., but the subject is pl. (see Note to st. 25/1). Here the sg. form is necessary because the pl. (gtu) would produce an unmetrical l.
 fold*: foldu Flat
 fold* (f. dat. sg.) ‘land’: Foldu (f. dat. sg.) ‘land’ (so Flat) makes the l. one syllable too long. Fold is a f. i-stem (dat. sg. foldu) that could be inflected as an ō-stem in the sg. (fold). For an identical dat. form, see st. 58/5.

Sigurðr sýrr married Ásta Guðbrandsdóttir, the widow of Haraldr grenski and the mother of Óláfr inn helgi Haraldsson (S. Óláfr). Haraldr Sigurðarson ruled jointly with his nephew Magnús Óláfsson (d. 1047) for one year, and thereafter he was sole ruler of Norway for nineteen years. He fell at the battle of Stamford Bridge against Harold Godwineson of England on 25 September 1066. His body was brought back to Norway and was buried in Mariekirken (Máríukirkja, the Church of S. Mary) in Trondheim, which Haraldr himself had built (see Theodoricus, MHN 58). When that church was demolished by Archbishop Eysteinn c. 1170, Haraldr’s body was relocated to the Augustinian foundation of Elgeseter (see McDougall and MacDougall 1998, 105 n. 281).
