Note to Anon Nkt 75II

[2] spjalli konungs ‘the confidant of the king’: Jón Loptsson was in Norway in 1163, and, according to MErlHkr (ÍF 28, 395), King Magnús Erlingsson acknowledged their kinship. Jón returned to Iceland the following year, but he may have been present at Magnús’s coronation in 1164 (see Hungrv 1953, 28).
