Stúfr Stúfdr 6II/1 — þeir ‘Those’

Flýðu þeir á Þjóðu
þengils fund af stundu;
stórt réð hugprútt hjarta.
Haralds ǫnd ofarr lǫndum.

Þeir á Þjóðu flýðu fund þengils af stundu; hugprútt hjarta réð stórt. …Haralds ǫnd ofarr lǫndum….

Those at Thy fled the encounter with the prince at once; the proud heart prevailed completely. …Haraldr’s spirit above the lands….


[1] þeir: þeir sem Hr


[1] þeir á Þjóðu ‘those at Thy’: Þeir ‘those, they’ could perhaps also be a reference to people in some previous ll., now lost: þeir flýðu fund þengils á Þjóðu ‘they fled the encounter with the prince at Thy’. Thy is a district in north-western Jylland (Jutland).
