Hjálmþés saga ok Ölvis is a late legendary saga without an apparent historic basis. It is about two children of a jarl, and one of them is Hjálmþér whose evil stepmother commands him to work as a thrall until he has performed an impossible task.
In its present form, it is overdone and it stacks different motifs on top of each other. [according to whom?]However, the various Hjálmþésrímur which appear in the saga reveal that it once had a different structure.[according to whom?]
