"Horwendil, in his too great ardour, became keener to attack his enemy than to defend his own body; and, heedless of his shield, had grasped his sword with both hands; and his boldness did not fail. For by his rain of blows he destroyed Koller's shield and deprived him of it, and at last hewed off his foot and drove him lifeless to the ground."

Horwendill is a legendary Jutish chieftain in Chronicon Lethrense and in Saxo Grammaticus' Gesta Danorum (book 3).
