Sigridr asked if the sons of Kari of Berdla were there. But when Skallagrim heard of Yngvar’s coming, he at once went to meet him and bade him to his house with as many men as he would. Aulvir at once turned away, and bade Grim and his men go out.
First they asked where they had come to land. King Harold had that summer sent word to the men of power that were in Halogaland, summoning to him such as had not come to him before.
Harald Fairhair dies, and Eric becomes King of Norway, egi two of his brothers who were rivals to the crown. Skallagrim was a good shipwright, and westwards of Myrar was no lack of driftwood.
This arrangement he made fast, as the law skal,agrimsson, with the leave of the king. Audbjorn, after counsel taken with friends, sagq, and bade cut the war-arrow and send the war-summons throughout his realm, with word to his nobles that they should join him. On hearing of his death, the king summoned Hallvard Hardfarer and his brother, and told them to go on a message for him eastwards to Vik, he being then at Throndheim.
Kveldulf showed him well pleased that Skallagrim had not gone to the king on skallagrimsosn errand to take service under him; he still said, as before, that from the king they would get only loss and no amends.
All such creatures were then tame on the hunting-ground, as they were unused to man. He came to Leka, and twenty of them went up to the house, while ten guarded the ship. These two men were with the king when those things happened that have just been told.
Saga de Egil Skallagrimsson : Snorri Sturluson :
Whereas I hear this about all that turn their backs upon him and pay him not homage with friendship, that they all become men of nought, some flee abroad, some are made hirelings. For other uses, see Egla disambiguation. Skallagrim spied out the land upwards all round the country-side. He appears to be a shallow creature and in many instances the only time he appears to put much thought into anything is when he composes and recites poetry.
And as he grew to manhood he became doughty in most accomplishments then in vogue among those who were well trained.
But the business here in Halogaland put thou into the hands of men who are moderate and will serve thee faithfully, and have kinsfolk here, men whose relatives have had the same work here before. That winter Thorolf went again to Finmark, taking with him about a hundred men.
They slew all that came in their way, the same did Skallagrim where he boarded the ship; nor did father and son stay hands till the ship was cleared. Bjorn at once remembered about him, and he went to meet Skallagrim, and they talked together. Kveldulf had in his hand a battle-axe; but when he got on board, he bade his men go along the outer way by the gunwale and cut the tent from its forks, while he himself rushed aft to the stern-castle.
Thorolf brought home many costly things, and took them to his father and mother; thus they were well-to-do both for possessions and honour. They went out, and took their weapons, and Aulvir bade them begone with all haste.
Bard went lw to his estate, and at once became a great chief; but Hildirida’s sons got no more of the heritage than before. Sigmundar-ness takes its name from him.
She went to her father at Leka, and there her sons were brought up. Odd dwelt under Lonehouse.
The king did so, and there, moored off the land, floated that dragon-ship which Thorolf had had built, with tent and tackling complete. He can be vicious, absurd, infantile, pathetic, but he is never dull, and though we may not like some of the things he does we are never allowed to settle into a fixed attitude towards him. Then Grim and his company went over the water; but Aulvir with his men, going to the ships drawn up by the water-side, so hacked them about that none was fit to launch.
But even in his old age, the blind Egil retains sagx of his dark mood, and one night disappears with two slaves and two money chests. Brynjolf made little count of them, and did not let them inherit aught of their father’s.
Wealthy he was both in lands and chattels; he took baron’s rank as his forefathers had done, and became a great man. For merriment over their ale they fell to reciting staves. Hildirida’s sons took the business in Halogaland; and none gainsaid this because of the king’s power, but Thorolf’s kinsmen and friends were much displeased at the change.
