Sturl Hákkv 30II/2 — dróttinn ‘the lord’

Ok þar sat
seggja dróttinn
gulli grimmr
á gjafstóli.
Þá hverr maðr
af hringskata,
þat er yrþjóð
æskja kunni.

Ok þar sat dróttinn seggja, grimmr gulli, á gjafstóli. Hverr maðr þá af hringskata, þat er yrþjóð kunni æskja.

And there the lord of men [KING = Hákon], fierce towards gold, sat on the gift-chair. Each man received from the ring-generous one that which mankind could wish for.


[2] seggja dróttinn: ‘at segia drottnínn’ Flat
