Chivalric sagas The term "riddarasögur" (singular "riddarasaga") occurs in "Mágus saga jarls" where there is a reference to "Frásagnir...svo sem...Þiðreks saga, Flóvenz saga eðr aðrar riddarasögur", "narratives such as the saga of Þiðrekr, the saga of Flóvent, or other knights' sagas". Another technical term sometimes encountered is "lygisögur" (singular "lygisaga"), "lie sagas", applied to fictional chivalric and legendary sagas.
Chivalric sagas These Old Norse translations have been characterised by Margaret Clunies Ross thus:
Chivalric sagas The material received a fairly substantial survey in Margaret Schlauch's 1934 "Romance in Iceland", since when the main monograph studies of the genre have been Astrid van Nahl's "Originale Riddarasögur als Teil altnordischer Sagaliteratur", Jürg Glauser's "Isländische Märchensagas", Marianne Kalinke's "Bridal-Quest Romance in Medieval Iceland", and Geraldine Barnes's "The Bookish Riddarasögur".
Chivalric sagas Chivalric sagas remained in widespread manuscript circulation in Iceland into the twentieth century. They were often reworked as "rímur", and new chivalric sagas in the same mould as medieval ones continued to be composed into the nineteenth century.
Chivalric sagas The following is a probably complete list of original medieval Icelandic chivalric sagas.
German Sagas The introduction explains the difference between fairy tales and sagas: "The fairy tale is more poetic, the saga is more historical in nature." Sagas often contain historical characters such as kings and queens, specific places, and the year of the event, and may also include mythical elements such as magic and spirits.
Kings' sagas Kings' sagas (Norwegian: "Kongesagaer") are Old Norse sagas which principally tell of the lives of semi-legendary and legendary (mythological, fictional) Nordic kings, also known as saga kings. They were composed during the twelfth to fourteenth centuries in Iceland and Norway.
Kings' sagas Included works in Latin, in approximate order of composition (many dates could be off by decades)
Bagler sagas The sagas pick up the story where Sverris saga leaves off, at the death of King Sverre in 1202. The older, and shorter, version ends with the wedding of Philippus in 1209. The later and longer version, also continues the story until the death of King Inge in 1217. The older version is neutral in its depiction of events, without a clear bias for either birkebeiner or bagler. It was probably written not long after the point where it leaves off, in 1209. The newer version was probably written by someone who wanted to expand the older version with more material about the birkebeiner, and continue the story to cover all of Inge's reign. It was probably written no later than the early 1220s. The author of this later version is clearly on the side of the birkebeiner, and shows personal sympathies for king Inge, also in his disputes with his brother, earl Haakon the Crazy ("Håkon Galen").
Saints' sagas Saints' sagas (Old Norse "heilagra manna sögur") are a genre of Old Norse sagas comprising the prose hagiography of medieval western Scandinavia.
