The battle is a legendary battle between Víkar, the King of Agdir (now Agder) and a King from Kiev named Sisar.

It was a hard battle at the Lake of Vanern and many solders fell dead on the battlefield. According to the "Gautreks saga" one of the fallen was King Sisar himself. The saga doesn't give the reasons for the battle, but Vikar and his army were raiding the area, so Sisar's Army may have been sent to stop them.
