Norse Mythology

The Mighty Gods of the Vikings...


Norse legendary mortal

Also known as Volsung, Vǫlsungr

Legendary King with an odd parentage

King Völsung had a strange birth. His parents were unable to conceive, but Odin came to the rescue with the aid of an apple, a crow and wish. The pregnancy took several years, major surgery and the death of his parents, but Völsung finally appeared.

He had ten sons. None of them are Gods but they pop up in some hefty Norse legends so we thought we’d give him a mention.

In fact he was so legendary they even named a saga after him: The Völsung Saga.

Sigmund was the eldest and most heroic of his sons. See Brunhild.
