But the belly pain continued to strike and flared up wherever slaves or goods arrived. The Saxmen brought it over their marks; with the Jutters it sailed to Skeanland and along the shores of the Baltic Sea; with Askar's steersmen it got to Britannia.

We and the ones from Greanega did not accept goods, nor people into our territory, so we remained free from the belly pain. I do not know how many died of belly pain, but Prontlik, who was told later by the other maidens, informed me that Askar lost a thousandfold more free people from his states than he had brought foul slaves in.

When the pestilence had ended, the self-proclaimed ‘free’ Twisklanders came to the Rhine, but Askar did not want to associate with the princes of that vulgar, bastardized folk. He could not stand that they called themselves Frya's children, like Reintia had promised them they could, but he forgot that he had black hair himself.

One came from the far south-east and called themselves Allemanna. This name they had given themselves when they still roamed in the woods as exiles without wives.
