Kappsamr Haraldr inn hárfagri tók brátt við konungsnafni, þás Halfdan hafði drukknat í næfri hallar hœings.
Vigorous Haraldr inn hárfagri (‘the Fair-haired’) at once received the title of king when Hálfdan had drowned in the roof-shingle of the salmon’s hall [WATER > ICE].
 inn hárfagri ‘(“the Fair-haired”)’: Haraldr had vowed not to cut his hair before he became sole ruler of Norway, and his thick and tangled locks earned him the nickname lúfa ‘Shaggy-locks’. Once his sovereignty had been established, he had his hair cut and received the new nickname hárfagri ‘Fair-hair’ on account of his beautiful hair. See Ágr (ÍF 29, 3), Fsk (ÍF 29, 70), HhárfHkr (ÍF 26, 122).
Pronouns and determiners: Definite article
The definite article is normally suffixed to nouns, except in some cases where it is used with an adjective. If the noun form ends in a vowel, the 'i' in the article is dropped. If the noun form ends in 'um', the 'm' and 'i' are both dropped. E.g. hesta (acc. pl.) > hestana (acc. pl. definite); hestum (dat. pl.) > hestunum (dat. pl. definite)
