In the end, Sigurðr was eager [to travel] from the south with a small force to conquer the lands. King Magnús, deprived of much, prepared to join him on the war-expedition.

Context: After their rampage along the coast of Norway, Sigurðr and Magnús sailed to Denmark. The following autumn (1139) they returned to Norway with thirty warships manned by Norwegians and Danes.
Notes:  andvani margs ‘deprived of much’: Magnús Sigurðarson had been blinded and castrated by his uncle, Haraldr gilli, after Haraldr captured him in Bergen shortly after Christmas 1134. See ‘Royal Biographies’ in the Introduction to this vol.
