Abstract

The earliest known Icelandic manuscript containing translations of Chrétien de Troyes’ romances was commissioned by the rich landowner Ormur Snorrason. In this version the Arthurian knights defend the kingdom while maintaining a problematic relationship to the court. Ormur Snorrason experienced similar challenges during his career as a royal official in Iceland.
