Úlfljótslög was the first law-code amongst the iceladers and was established in 930 AD, at the founding of the Alþing at Þingvellir. It is named after the first law speaker Úlfljótr. The Norwegian Gulaþings law was the basis for the Icelandic Úlfljótslög. Parts of Úlfljótslög is preserved in Ari’s Íslendingabók (12th century) and Þorsteins þáttr uxafóts in Flateyjarbók (late 14th century).
