The poetry in this volume commemorates the lives of Scandinavian rulers from c.1035 to 1280 and events that took place during their reigns. It mainly focuses on the kings of Norway and on noblemen and chieftains associated with these kings, although some of the kings of Denmark, as well as three of the jarls of Orkney receive attention.
