As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- land-vörðr (land-vǫrðr)
- m. a land-warder, poët. a king, Lex. poët.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, land-vörðr may be more accurately written as land-vǫrðr.
