Gísla saga. When Eyjólfur and his men attacked Gísli in overwhelming numbers, Gísli's wife Auður stood by his side, armed with a club. In the first rush, Gísli killed Helgi by cutting him in two, while Auður struck Eyjólfur so hard that he staggered back down the hill. Gísli turned to his wife and said, "I knew I had married well but never realized until now how good the match was."
