In his own saga, Finnbogi proves to be an upright and noble figure who almost always does the right thing. With superhuman strength, he’s capable of dispatching an angry bull with his bare hands, snapping the spine of an angry Norwegian bear, and coming out ahead in a seemingly endless feud with Vatnsdæla Saga’s brutish Jokul Ingimundarsson. Finnbogi’s Saga deserves more attention than it has gotten in the past.

This is the first English translation of one of the last Old Icelandic Family Sagas called Finnbogi saga ins ramma (The Saga of Finnbogi the Strong). Of considerable interest to folklorists and students of comparative literature courses, this saga purportedly recounts the life adventures of one Finnbogi Asbjornson, a tenth century Icelander renowned for his prodigious strength. Although external evidence does suggest that there was indeed someone name Finnbogi, born in Flateyjardale, who lived in Vididale and Trekyllisvik, it can not be proven. Includes a comprehensive introduction to the tale's history, a glossary of proper names, and several maps.
