One of the Valkyrie. Her name means ‘Shaker’. The Valkyrie are powerful female warriors who abided in the heavens with Odin tthe leader of the Norse gods. They came to the battlefields to select the best warriors who have been slain and to bring them to Valhalla, the great hall of the upper world. They are also known as Oskmeyer ‘Odin’s Wishfulfillers’ and as ‘Waive Maidens’. Great warriors who had died in battle were chosen by the Valkyrie to fight in the heavens as a form of training. After each fight their wounds would be regenerated by the Valkyrie and thus they fought endlessly to prepare for the final battle Ragnarok. Some say that there were 36 Valkyrie while other myths state that there were 13.

The other 12 are; Goll ‘Battle Cry’, Geirolul ‘Spear Charger’, Hildr ‘Battle’, Herfjotur ‘Army-Fetter’, Hlokk ‘Battle Noise’, Mist ‘Cloud’, Radgridr ‘Bossy’, Randgridr ‘Shield-Destroyer’, Reginlefir ‘God’s Daughter’ Skeggjold ‘Axe-Age’, Sigrdrifa ‘Inciter to Battle’ and Thrudr ‘Power-Woman’.
