... He heard that a distant king had a daughter who was beautiful, good, and wise; and he sent an earl laden with gold and gifts, to ask her to be his queen.  The king's name was Eylimi, and his daughter's name was Hiordis.
    On the very day of the earl's arrival at Eylimi's court, a messenger came from King Lygni to ask the hand of Hiordis.  Lygni's kingdom was near Eylimi's and Sigmund's was far away.  Lygni was young, and Sigmund was old.  Both were rich and powerful kings. (
