Kungen tittade på Guthorm, gjorde ett snett ansikte och låtsades vara arg på dem: där pojkarna var rädda. Sedan Asta förde hennes yngsta son, som heter Harald, som var tre år gammal, till honom.

It is told that when King Olaf was on his visit to his mother Asta, she brought out her children, and showed them to him.
