Þá gat son
Sigurðr ok Ásta,
þanns Haralds
heiti átti.
réð einn
allvitr konungr
víðri fold*
vetr tuttugu,
áðr herfǫr
hilmir gerði
til Englands
með ofstopa.
Felldu vestr
í vápnþrumu
enskir menn
Óláfs bróður.

 

Then Sigurðr and Ásta begot a son who bore Haraldr’s name. That very wise king ruled the wide land alone for twenty years, before the lord made a war-expedition to England with insolence. English men killed {Óláfr’s brother} [= Haraldr] in the west in {weapon-thunder}. [BATTLE]

notes: Sigurðr sýrr married Ásta Guðbrandsdóttir, the widow of Haraldr grenski and the mother of Óláfr inn helgi Haraldsson (S. Óláfr). Haraldr Sigurðarson ruled jointly with his nephew Magnús Óláfsson (d. 1047) for one year, and thereafter he was sole ruler of Norway for nineteen years. He fell at the battle of Stamford Bridge against Harold Godwineson of England on 25 September 1066. His body was brought back to Norway and was buried in Mariekirken (Máríukirkja, the Church of S. Mary) in Trondheim, which Haraldr himself had built (see Theodoricus, MHN 58). When that church was demolished by Archbishop Eysteinn c. 1170, Haraldr’s body was relocated to the Augustinian foundation of Elgeseter (see McDougall and MacDougall 1998, 105 n. 281). See Ágr (ÍF 29, 39-40), Mork 1928-32, 270-8, 284, Fsk (ÍF 29, 280-9), HSigHkr (ÍF 28, 183-91, 198).
