Kan du utveckla detta? Var nämns älvar specifikt i kvädet? flód omnämns många gånger men har enligt http://old-engli.sh/dict%20pages/OE%20D ... -%20F.html många möjliga betydelser:
mass of water, flood, wave; flow (of tide as opposed to ebb), tide, flux, current, stream; the Flood, Deluge
Jag minns inget specifikt västskandinaviskt från Hrólfr Kraki's saga."Rolf Krake och hans bror som verkar i en Västskandinavisk kontext undviks naturligtvis.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hr%C3%B3lfr_Kraki tycker jag beskriver en möjlig förklaring:
A common identification is that Hrólf Kraki is the same as the character Hroðulf (Hroðgar's nephew) in Beowulf. There seems to be some foreshadowing in Beowulf that Hroðulf will attempt to usurp the throne from Hroðgar's sons Hreðric and Hroðmund, a deed that also seems to be referred to in Saxo Grammaticus's Gesta Danorum (Book 2), where we find: "... our king, who laid low Rorik, the son of Bok the covetous, and wrapped the coward in death." Rorik is the form we would expect Hreðric to take in Danish and we find personages named Rorik or Hrok or similar in most version of the Hrólf Kraki tradition but differently accounted for, seemingly indicating that Scandinavian tradition had forgotten who exactly Hreðric/Rorik/Hrok was and various story tellers subsequently invented details to explain references to this personage in older poems. The future slaying of Hreðric may be the occasion of the future burning of the hall of Heorot in the beginning of the poem – though some take it instead to refer to the legendary death of Hrólf Kraki, who in Icelandic sources is said to have died in the burning of his hall by his brother-in-law Hjörvard.
