Sturl Hákfl 5II/5 — Mildr ‘The one generous’

Ríkr gaf hlenna hneykir
herþrungit Ribbungum
ógnar skýs í Ósló
eitt kveld meginsveitum.
Mildr kom heimskum hauldum
hervígs á glapstígu;
kendu langt í landi
Laufvíkingar ríkis.

Ríkr hneykir hlenna gaf Ribbungum eitt herþrungit kveld í Ósló meginsveitum skýs ógnar. Mildr hervígs kom heimskum hauldum á glapstígu; Laufvíkingar kendu ríkis langt í landi.

The powerful repressor of robbers [JUST RULER = Hákon] gave the Ribbungar one very oppressive evening in Oslo with the main forces of the cloud of terror [SHIELD]. The one generous with battle forced the foolish men onto pernicious paths; the Forest-vikings [= the Ribbungar] felt the power far into the land.
