Anon (Mberf) 1II/8 — allan ‘it all’

Ungr kom Hôkon hingat;
hanns beztr alinn manna
frægðarmildr á foldu;
fór með Steigar-Þóri.
Syni Óláfs bauð síðan
sjalfr um Nóreg halfan
mildr, en Magnús vildi
málsnjallr hafa allan.

Ungr Hôkon kom hingat; hann, frægðarmildr, [e]s alinn beztr manna á foldu; fór með Steigar-Þóri. Síðan bauð mildr sjalfr syni Óláfs um halfan Nóreg, en málsnjallr Magnús vildi hafa allan.

Young Hákon came here; he, generous with glory, is born the best of men on earth; he came with Steigar-Þórir. Then the generous one himself gave Óláfr’s son [= Magnús] power over half of Norway, but eloquent Magnús wished to have it all.
