King Olaf's Verse / O, Olaf, our subjugator, the one-eyed betrayer; / death-dealing demon and dragon-killing King. / Your legend is lies, lurid and false; / your cunning capture of Numinex, a con for the ages. / illegible text illegible text / Olaf grabbed power, by promise and threat; / From Falkreath to Winterhold, they fell to their knees; / But Solitude stood strong, Skyrim's truest protectors. / Olaf's vengeance was instant, inspired and wicked. / illegible text
illegible text / So ends the story of Olaf the liar, a thief and a scoundrel we of Solitude commit to the fire. In Solitude bards train for their service, they also gather each year and burn a King who deserves it.
