Composed in medieval Iceland, Hrolfâ€™s Saga recalls ancient Scandinavia of the Migration Period, when the warrior chieftain King Hrolf ruled in Denmark. In the Viking World, King Hrolf served as a symbol of courage. Sharing rich oral traditions with the Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf, Hrolfâ€™s Saga recounts the tragedy of strife within Denmarkâ€™s royal hall. It tells of powerful women and the exploits of Hrolfâ€™s famous champions â€“ including Bodvar Bjarki, the â€˜bear-warriorâ€™, who strikingly resembles Beowulf. Combining heroic legend, myth and magic, Hrolfâ€™s Saga is full of wizards, sorceresses, and â€˜beserkerâ€™ fighters, originally members of the cult of Odin. Most startling is the central love triangle: Hrolfâ€™s father, a man of insatiable appetites, unknowingly abducts his daughter, who later marries the despised sorcerer King Adils of Sweden. A powerful human drama with deep historical roots, extraordinary events and fierce battle scenes, Hrolfâ€™s Saga ranks among the masterworks of the Middle Ages.
