Færeyinga Saga, the saga of the Faroe Islands, tells the story of how the Faroe Islanders were converted to Christianity and became a part of Norway.
The saga is believed to have been written in Iceland in the early 13th century. The original manuscript of the saga is lost. However, certain passages have been copied in other sagas, such as Óláfs saga Tryggvasonar en mesta, Flateyjarbók, and AM 62 fol.
Þorgerðr’s second name appears in the following forms, Hǫlga-, Hǫlda-, Hǫrða-, Hǫrga-brúðr, and Hǫlga-, Hǫlda-, Hǫrða-, Hǫrga-troll.
See, for example, Storm, G., ‘Om Thorgerd Hölgebrud’ Arkiv II (1885) 124 ff. and “Jómsvíkinga saga. The saga of the Jomsvikings”, in Icelandic Texts, (eds.) Sigurður Nordal and G. Turville-Petre (1962), Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd, Toronto/New York pp.51-52.
