Sá vas vinsæll
Ok Magnús, fremðargjarn, felldi Hôkon norðr á Mœri. Sá vinsæll ræsir vas hulðr vígðri moldu í Raumsdali.
‘And Magnús, eager for fame, killed Hákon north in Møre. That popular prince was covered by hallowed soil in Romsdalen.’
Hákon was killed at the battle of Sekken in Romsdalsfjorden against Erlingr skakki and Magnús Erlingsson (on 7 July 1162). He was buried in Romsdalen, but King Sverrir later had his body moved to Kristkirken in Trondheim. See MErlHkr (ÍF 28, 383).
