text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following is taken from an old edition (Skj where relevant):



Sigurður konungur var mikill vexti og jarpur á hár,
skörulegur, ekki fagur, vel vaxinn, snöfurlegur, fámæltur og
oftast ekki þýður, vingóður og fastúðigur, ekki talaður mjög,
siðlátur og veglátur. Sigurður konungur var stjórnsamur og
refsingasamur, hélt vel lögin, mildur af fé, ríkur og ágætur.



Ólafur konungur var maður hár og mjór, fríður sýnum, glaður
og lítillátur, vinsæll.



Þá er þeir bræður voru konungar í Noregi tóku þeir af margar
álögur þær er Danir höfðu lagt á lýðinn þá er Sveinn
Alfífuson réð landi og urðu þeir af því stórum vinsælir við
alþýðu og stórmenni.
