AMLETH

Norse legendary mortal

Also known as Amlethus, Amlóða, Amlóði, Hamlet

The original Prince of Denmark

Alas poor Hamlet – Amleth is the original version of Shakespeare’s hero. You never know who is going to pop up in Godchecker do you?

The exciting tale of Amleth as borrowed by Shakespeare goes back to at least the 12th century and possibly further to a lost Icelandic saga.

There is an obscure theory that suggests he is also in charge of the World Mill where cosmological ingredients are warped and wefted. Unless that lost saga turns up with all the juicy details we will remain sceptical.
