In the 13th century Karlamagnus saga, Dyrumdali is the sword of King Karlamagnus. It is one of three blades forged by Wayland the Smith (Volund), and came into his possession as a ransom payment in exchange for Abraham. After the exchange was complete, King Karlamagnus decided to test the quality of the swords. He took the first sword and struck it against a steel mound, and the sword sunk into it a "hand's breadth" (about 4 inches). He decided to call the sword Kurt (Curtana, the blade that would later be given to Ogier the Dane). He again struck the steel mound with the second sword, this time sinking slightly more than a hand's breadth. He decided to call the sword Almacia (Almace, the sword that would later be given to Turpin, Archbishop of Reims). With the last sword he struck the steel mound and it sunk in "more than half the length of a man's foot" (about 6 inches). He decided to call the sword Dyrumdali and kept it for himself as it was the finest of the three.

Dyrumdali is almost certainly Durendal, the sword of Roland. However, the Norse saga has no French equivalent to compare with.
