Illuga Cherny lived on the White River in Krotoyar. He was second in nobility in Gorodische Fjord after Thorstein, son of Egil. Illuchi had a lot of children, but only two of them were in the saga - Hermunde and Hunlandau. About Hunlaugh tell that he was early mature, was tall, he was strong and good. He loved to compose violent poetry, and for this he was nicknamed Zmein. Hermunda loved more than Hunlandga. Twelve years later, Hunllaug had quarreled with his father, and Thorstein offered him to live in the Gorodishche. Hunllaug studied the laws of Thorstein and earned universal respect. They and Helgo are very attached to each other. Helga was so beautiful that, according to the intelligent people, there were no women in Iceland more beautiful than her. One day, Hunnlaug asked Torstein to show how he was getting married to a girlfriend, and he made a rendezvous with Helgo, but Torstein warned,
There was a man named Enund on the Mystic Mountain. He had three sons, and they all had great hopes, but he was particularly distinguished among them. Hrafn was a tall, strong, handsome young man who was able to compose good poetry. Enund had many relatives and they were the most respected people in the south.
For six years, the Hunland Valley of the Serpentine Language has lived alternately in the Torpstein Mountains, then at home in Krotoyar. He was already eighteen years old, and with his father they were now well off. Hunllaug asked Illugia to let him go on a journey, and he bought him a ship. As long as the ship was fitted, Hunnlaug went to the hometown and spent a lot of time with Helgo. When he began to marry, Thorstein replied that it was necessary either to go for the sea or to marry - Helge is not a couple who does not know what he wants. But Illugi Black Torstein could not refuse, and promised that Helga would wait for Hunllaug for three years, and if he did not return in time, Thorstein would give her another.
Hunnlaug went to Norway, but he had to leave from there, because he had angry Yarl Eirik with his tenacity. He sailed to England and composed a laudable song for Konul Adalrad - for this the Kong donated him with a purple cloak on a fur with a gold trim. Then he killed in a dueling known viking: this feat brought him great fame in England and beyond. The Dublin conggregation Sigturygg thanked him for a laudable song with an expensive cloak and a gold wrist weighing one mark. In Hutland then Yarl Sigurd ruled. Once argued Gauta with the Norwegians, whose Jarl is better. The elected arbitrator, Hunnlaug, told Vise, in which he commended Jarl Sigurdu, and Jarl Eiriku. The Norwegians were very pleased, and Yard Ayrik, having learned about it, forgot about his offense. In Sweden, Hunnlaug met with Chaplain, the son of Enund, and made friends with him. But for the banquet at the Konuna, Olawa Hunllaug wanted to say the first song of praise. The hrafn called it hurried and harsh, as Hunland was himself. Hunllaug called the song Hrafna beautiful and insignificant, as Hrafn himself. Before leaving for Iceland, Hrafn said that his former friendship was over, and sometime he would also conjure Hunluga. He replied that threats are not afraid.
Throughout the winter, Hrafn spent time with his father, and in the summer he drove to Helge. Thorstein denied him, citing the promise given to Hunlandau. Next summer, the noble relatives of Hrafna began to cheat Helga very persistently, saying that the term of three years had already passed. Then Thorstein drove to Illuga Black. He said that he did not know exactly the intentions of his son Hunland. It was decided that a wedding would take place at the beginning of the winter in Gorodisch if Hunlandug would not return and would not require a promise. Helga was very dissatisfied with all this conspiracy.
Hunlandau from Sweden traveled to England, and Konal Adalrad accepted him very well. The Danes were then threatened with war, so the Konung did not want to let go of his warrior. For half a month before the beginning of winter, Hunlandug landed in Lava Bay, and here he was summoned on a fist battle by Tord, son of the bond from the plain. Hunnlaug won, but dislocated his leg - and came to Krotoyar the very Saturday, when he sat at the hill behind the wedding feast. People say that the bride was very sad. When Helga learned that Hunllaug was back, she became cold with her husband. At the end of the winter, they met with Hunluga during the holiday, and Scald gave her a cloak obtained from the Konul Adalrad. In the summer, everyone went to the tung: there Hunllaug summoned Hrafn to a duel, but when Chrafn broke his sword, the relatives stood between them. The next day, a law was passed that all fights in Iceland are now prohibited.
Hrafn arrived in Krotoyar and invited Hunlandau to finish the fight in Norway. To his relatives, he said that he had no joy from Helgi, and one of them should perish by the hand of another. When Jarl Ayrik forbade them to fight in his state, they met in a place called Livangr. Hunllaug killed Hrafna's companions, and Hrafn - Hunlandga's satellites. Then they began to beat two.
Hunnlaug cut off the leg Grab, and he asked to drink. Hunllaug brought in a helmet of water, and Hrafn gave him a dashing blow to his head, because he did not want to give Helga the Beautiful. Hunllaug killed Hrafna and three days later he died of a wound. At that time, Illya Black had a dream, as if he had come to him with a bloodied Hunlandug and told Vise about his death. And Ennudu in a dream appeared Hrafn.
In the summer at the Althinge, Illugi asked Enund for a hug for what Hrafn had done to Hunlough. Enund said that he would not pay, but he would not require a hare for the vire. Then Illuchi killed his two relatives, and Hermund, who lost his peace after the death of his brother, pierced one of his nephews with a spear. Nobody demanded a barn for murder, and on this stopped Illyu Black's fight with Enund from the Mushroom Mountain.
Thorstein, the son of Egil,, after a while, gave out his daughter Helgu for a decent and rich man named Torquel. But she was little to him, because she could not forget Hunllauga. The greatest joy for her was to open up and look for a long cloak for her. Once upon a time in Torquay's house there was a serious illness, and Helga also suffered from illness. She ordered to bring Hunluga's cloak and looked closely at him, and then bowed to her husband's hands and died. Everyone was very sorry for her death.
