Written by an anonymous author in fourteenth-century Iceland. The Saga of King Hrolf Kraki is built on almost a thousand years of oral traditions, many of which are related to underlying stories found in the Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf. Reaching into the mists of Scandinavia's most ancient history, Hrolf's Saga tells of events set in the Migration Period when warrior chieftains and their proud women ruled, loved and feuded in the northern lands.
