Learn a little bit more about Valkyrie:
The Valkyrie are female figures in Norse mythology – the mythology of Scandinavia. There is a possibility that the legend was based on the women who actually took part in battles in the Scandinavian countries of the early middle ages. Scandinavian women at this time had many of the same rights as men and were often tall and strong. While Viking men were away would defend themselves and there are tales of their outstanding performance in battle.
In legends, Valkyries choose some of the dead from the battle field and take their souls to Valhalla, Odin’s hall.
Valhalla is a sort of paradise with endless food and drink, a roof thatched with gold shields and rafters made of spears. This paradise is only for those who die in battle and have been chosen and transported by the Valkyries.
Valkyr means “Chooser of the slain” and those chosen will go on to fight beside Odin at Ragnarok. There, at the battle at the end of the world, the Valkyrie are thought by some to die in battle alongside Odin against the forces of chaos.
The Valkyrie, and in particular Brunhilde, were made famous worldwide by the operas of Richard Wagner. In a tale reminiscent of Sleeping Beauty she defied Odin and so was made mortal.
