Shield-maidens

Shield-maiden was a woman who had chosen to fight as a warrior alongside men in Scandinavian folklore and mythology.

Shieldmaidens also appear in sagas such as Hervarar saga ok Heiðreks and in Gesta Danorum. Shieldmaidens also appear in stories of other Germanic peoples: Goths, Cimbri and Marcomanni. The historical existence of shieldmaidens is still heavily debated.

In Vikings Edit

Vikings series uses shield-maidens quite extensively. Lagertha, Gunnhild, Astrid, Torvi, Porunn and Brynhildr are among the shield-maidens featured.
