Sturl Hákkv 15II/3 — ræsis ‘of the ruler’

Enn þar framm
fylgja knátti
ræsis hirð
rómu stýri
á hliðar báðar
í gagnför
greypra vápna.

Enn hildarfús hirð ræsis knátti fylgja stýri rómu framm þar á báðar hliðar í gagnför greypra vápna.

And the fight-eager retinue of the ruler followed the controller of battle [WARRIOR = Hákon] forwards there on both sides in the meeting of terrible weapons [BATTLE].
