"There was a man (troll) named Bergþór, he lived in a cave in Mt. Bláfell; - he had a wife named Hrefna. Bergþór didn't hurt anybody if he was not attacked himself and he was thought to be clairvoyant and wise. When Christianity started spreading in Iceland Hrefna urged her husband to move away from Mt. Bláfell north across Hvítá river, because she couldn't stand watching the settlement below after the inhabitants became Christians (trolls were not Christian and shun away from everything having to do with Christianity - RHR). Bergþór didn't think this mattered at all and told Hrefna that he would stay in the cave. Hrefna decided on moving anyway and moved north of the river and built a hut beneath a mountain - it has since been called Hrefnubúðir. The couple met after that by lake Hvítárvatn and went trout fishing together.
When the giant grew older he once went down to Haukadalur valley and asked the farmer at Haukadalur to secure him a grave, where the chime of the church bells could be heard and the sounds of the river which runs by Haukadalskirkja church - he asked the farmer to move his dead body to Haukadalur. Then the farmer should go and collect his body in his cave in Mt. Bláfell and the payment for his good deed would be found inside his kettle. As a sign of his death his walking stick would be by the farm door in Haukadalur. The farmer agreed to this and they parted.
One morning as the country people arrived at Haukadalur they found a huge walking stick by the farm door. The farmer was informed about this and recognized the walking stick of Bergþór. He had a coffin made and went up to Mt. Bláfell with several men - they found Bergþór dead in his bed in Bergþórshellir cave. They put him in his coffin and were surprised that such a huge man (troll) didn't weigh more. The farmer noticed a big kettle by the bed and checked what was inside, and when he only saw leaves inside he gathered that Bergþór had tricked him so he left the leaves behind. But one of the men in his group filled his mitten with leaves.
When they had descended from the mountain the man who had taken the leaves checked his mittens; they were filled with money! The farmer and his men returned to the cave to pick up the kettle, but they didn't find the cave and it has been hidden ever since. They returned and carried the body of Bergþór down to Haukadalur; the farmer had him buried north of the graveyard; it has since been called Bergþórsleiði or the Grave of Bergþór.
The ring from Bergþór's walking stick is the same ring as the one on the shield on the church door, and the spike of the walking stick is also in the possession of the church".
