The saga deals with the shieldmaiden Hervor and her son Heidrek, the king of Reidgotaland. Between his sons Angantyr and Hlod, there is a great battle about their father's heritage and Hlod is aided by the Huns. However, Hlod is defeated and killed.
The sword Tyrfing plays a key role.
In the end, the saga relates that Angantyr, had the son Heidhrekr Ulfhamr who was king of Reidgotaland for a long time. Heidhrekr's daughter was Hildr and she had the son Halfdan the Kind. Halfdan the Kind was the father of Ivar Vidfamne. After Ivar Vidfamne, the saga recites the line of Swedish kings to the certainly historical Philip Halstensson (see Swedish semi-legendary kings).
