Chapter 20 - Skallagrim's marriage.
There was a man named Yngvar, powerful and wealthy. He had been a baron of the former kings. But after Harold came to the throne, Yngvar sat
at home and served not the king. Yngvar was married and had a daughter named Bera. Yngvar dwelt in the Firths. Bera was his only child and heiress. Grim
Kveldulf's son asked Bera to wife, and the match was arranged. Grim took Bera in the winter following the summer when Thorolf had parted from him and his
Grim was then twenty-five years old, and was now bald, wherefore he was henceforth called Skallagrim. He had then the management of all the
farms belonging to his father and himself and of all the produce, though Kveldulf was yet a hale and strong man. They had many freedmen about them, and many
men who had grown up there at home and were about Skallagrim's equals in age. Men of prowess and strength they were mostly, for both father and son chose
strong fellows to be their followers, and trained them after their mind. Skallagrim was like his father in stature and strength, as also in face and temper.
20. kafli - Kvánfang Skalla-Gríms.
Maðr hét Yngvarr, ríkr ok auðigr. Hann hafði verit lendr maðr inna fyrri konunga, en síðan er Haraldr kom til ríkis, settist
Yngvarr heima ok þjónaði ekki konungi. Yngvarr var maðr kvángaðr ok átti dóttur, er hét Bera. Yngvarr bjó í Fjörðum. Bera var einberni hans ok
stóð til arfs eftir hann.
Grímr Kveld-Úlfsson bað Beru til handa sér, ok var þat at ráði gert. Fekk Grímr Beru þann vetr, er þeir Þórólfr höfðu skilizt áðr um sumarit. Var
Grímr þá hálfþrítugr at aldri ok var þá sköllóttr. Síðan var hann kallaðr Skalla-Grímr. Hann hafði þá forráð öll fyrir búi þeira feðga ok tilöflun
alla, en þó var Kveld-Úlfr hress maðr ok vel færr. Margt höfðu þeir frelsingja með sér ok marga þá menn, er heima þar höfðu upp vaxit ok váru nær
jafnaldrar Skalla-Gríms. Váru þeir margir afreksmenn miklir at afli, því at Kveld-Úlfr ok þeir feðgar völðu menn mjök at afli til fylgðar við sik
ok tömðu við skaplyndi sitt.
Skalla-Grímr var líkr feðr sínum á vöxt ok at afli, svá ok at yfirlitum ok skaplyndi.
