Skjaldar þáttr Danakonungs. A lost fornaldarsaga?

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikel

  • Philip Thomas Lavender
In this article I discuss a reference in Illuga saga Gríðarfóstra to a Skjaldar þáttur ok Hermanns. Previous commentators have said that this reference is either made up or alludes to a now lost saga. I show that the reference to the saga is not a fabrication: the narrative of Skjöldr and Hermann exists in several different forms present in post-medieval manuscripts. A diplomatic edition of one of the earliest texts is provided here.
