Anon Nkt 7II/7 — kyn ‘the kin’

Átti gramr,
sás gjafir veitti,
barna mart,
þaus biðu þroska.
Því kømr hvers
til Haralds síðan
skjǫldungs kyn
ins skararfagra.

Gramr, sás veitti gjafir, átti mart barna, þaus biðu þroska. Því kømr kyn hvers skjǫldungs síðan til Haralds ins skararfagra.

The monarch, who gave gifts, had many children who reached maturity. Therefore the kin of each ruler since is traced to Haraldr the fair-haired.
