Note to BjHall Kálffl 8I

[8] heiptminnigr ‘intent on hostility’: ÍF 27 and ÍF 34 translate this with the more specific minnugur (forns) fjandskapar ‘mindful of former enmity’; there is no evidence of personal hostility between Kálfr and Rǫgnvaldr, but they had fought on opposite sides at Stiklastaðir (Stiklestad).
