Anon Nkt 47II/1 — Gerði ‘did’

Gerði flest,
þats frama gegnði
Eysteinn konungr,
unz hjartverkr
hilmi frœknan
brigða brátt
til bana leiddi.

Eysteinn konungr gerði flest, þats gegnði frama innanlands, unz hjartverkr leiddi frœknan hilmi brigða brátt til bana.

King Eysteinn did much that brought progress within the country, until a heart-disease very suddenly led the daring lord to his death.
