Gísl Magnkv 6II/6 — dróttni ‘lord’

Raufsk við róstu        — rymr varð í her —
helmingr Egils        við Hlaðir útan.
Môttut hersar        við Haða dróttni
láðgǫfguðum        landi ráða.

Helmingr Egils raufsk við róstu útan við Hlaðir; rymr varð í her. Hersar môttut ráða landi við láðgǫfguðum dróttni Haða.

Egill’s unit scattered in the tumult out by Lade; a roar resounded throughout the army. The hersar could not hold the country against the land-endowed lord of the Haðar [NORWEGIAN KING = Magnús].


[6] Haða dróttni: Hǫrða gram F


[6] við dróttni Haða ‘against the lord of the Haðar [NORWEGIAN KING = Magnús]’: Við gram Hǫrða ‘against the lord of the Hǫrðar’ (so F) is a possible reading. The Haðar were the people of Hadeland, the southern part of Oppland in south-eastern Norway.



case: dat.
