Sigmundr ok Sinfjǫtli ‘Sigmundr and Sinfjǫtli’: These two heroes, father and son (or uncle and nephew), are central figures in Vǫlsunga saga. Their Anglo-Saxon counterparts, Sigemund and Fitela, are also paired in Beowulf ll. 874-900. It is especially appropriate that Sigmundr should be mentioned in a poem in praise of Eiríkr, since he was counted a descendant, through the supposed marriage of Áslaug, the daughter of Sigmundr’s son Sigurðr, to Ragnarr loðbrók ‘Shaggy-breeches’; cf. Ættartal [Genealogy] I in ÍF 28.
