Þá hefk heyrt, at Haraldr, óársæll, tœki jǫrð ok ríki. Gráfeldr Gunnhildarson réð fyr Nóregi níu vetr, áðr * sonr Gorms ok Gull-Haraldr gerði nafna sinn at nái. Siklingr vas ræntr lífi suðr at Halsi í Limafirði.
Then I have heard that Haraldr, not blessed with prosperity, seized land and realm. Gráfeldr (‘Grey-cloak’) Gunnhildarson ruled Norway for nine years before Gormr’s son and Gull-Haraldr (‘Gold-Haraldr’) turned their namesake into a corpse. The ruler was robbed of his life south by Hals in Limfjorden.
 gerði (3rd pers. pl. pret. subj.) ‘turned into’: Most earlier eds emend to gerðu (3rd pers. pl. pret. indic.). That is unnecessary because both subj. and indic. occur in clauses introduced by áðr ‘before’ (l. 9) (see NS §302 Anm.).
