[All]: According to Mork (1928-32, 433) and Hkr (ÍF 28, 316), Magnús was resting in his bed during the battle, but when the ship was cleared, his faithful retainer, Hreiðarr Grjótgarðsson, took him in his arms and tried to jump over into another ship. A spear hit Hreiðarr between the shoulders, and the same spear penetrated Magnús and caused his death. Mork (1928-32, 433) reports Magnús’s dying words: Þat melti M. konvngr blindi er hann fecc scotit. Þat com .vij. vetrom til siþ ‘This is what King Magnús the Blind said when the spear hit him: “That came seven years too late”’.
