Njáls saga or 'The Story of Burnt Njáll' is a 13th century Icelandic saga that describes events between 960 and 1020. It deals with the process of blood feuds in the Icelandic Commonwealth, showing how the requirements of honor could lead to minor slights spiralling into destructive and prolonged bloodshed. The principal characters are the friends Njáll Þorgeirsson, and Gunnar Hámundarson. Gunnar's wife instigates a feud that leads to the death of many characters over several decades.
