Þá kvað það Gullrönd,
Þegi þú, þjóðleið,
hefir þú æ verið;
rekr þik alda hver
vífa mest. (eddic or germanic)
(Then said Gullrond, Giuki’s daughter:
‘Be silent, you monstrous woman, cease these words!
The nemesis of princes you have always been;
every wave of ill fate drives you along,
wounding sorrow of seven kings,
the greatest ruination for women’s loved ones!’
