SYNOPSIS:  “These two fair women saw the light in the self-same hour.  But Eric Brighteyes was their elder by five years.  The father of Eric was Thorgrimur Iron-Toe.  He had been a mighty man; but in fighting with a Baresark who fell upon him as he came up from sowing his wheat, his foot was hewn from him, so that afterwards he went upon a wooden leg shod with iron.

Somewhat late in life he took to wife Saevuna, Thorod’s daughter… but these two never loved each other overmuch, and they had but one child, Eric, who was born when Saevuna was well on in years.”
