    "Ásta, Gudbrand's daughter, bore a boy who was named Olaf when he was water-sprinkled by Hrani.  It was said by some that Gudbrand would not let him be raised on account of the hatred he had against his father (Harald Grænski), until Hrani told him that he had seen light over the house in which the child was born.  Gudbrand himself went to look at it.  Then the boy was taken and brought up with great love.  Hrani gave him a belt and a knife as tooth-fee, and when he grew up he gave him a ring and a sword" (St. Olaf's Saga, vol. iv.; Fornmanna Sogur). (The Viking Age, Chaillu, v.2, 1890).
