Gudrun

German - Daughter of Hettel and Hilde. Wife of Herwig. She was promised in marriage to Herwig but was abducted by Hartmut, an unsuccessful suitor. She refused to marry him so he handed her over to his mother, Gerlinda, who treated her badly. Thirteen years later, when she and her companion, Hildburg, were washing clothes on the shore, a mermaid or angel in the form of a swan told her that her brother Ortwin and her betrothed, Herwig, were coming to rescue her. Herwig, Ortwin and Wat routed the forces of Hartmut's father, Ludwig, who was killed by Herwig and Gudrun was reunited with her beloved who married her.

Norse - Daughter of Giuki and Grimhild. Sister of Gunnar, Guttorm and Hogni. Wife of Atli, Jonakur and Sigurd. Mother of Swanhild by Sigurd. Mother of Eitel and Erp by Atli. Mother of Erp, Hamdir and Sorli. By Jonakur. When Sigurd came to her father's court her mother gave him a lovepotion that caused him to forget Brunhild and fall in love with Gudrun whom he married. When Sigurd was murdered by her brother, Guttorm, she went with her daughter Swanhild to stay with Elf, the step-father of Sigurd who had married Thora after his first wife, Hiordis, died. Atli, king of the Huns, demanded compensation for the death of his sister Brunhild, who had died on Sigurd's funeral pyre, and, under the influence of another of her mother's magic brews, Gudrun agreed to marry Atli even though she hated him. They had two sons, Eitel and Erp. When Atli, coveting the treasure of the Niblungs, killed Gunnar and Hogni, she killed her two sons by Atli and served their hearts and blood to Atli and his guests. In one version, she then set fire to the palace killing all inside, including herself; in another story she killed Atli with Sigurd's sword and then drowned herself; in yet another story she survived the sea and married King Jonakur, bearing three more sons, Erp, Hamdir and Sorli. When her daughter, Swanhild, was killed by King Ermenrich, she ordered these young sons to avenge her death. Hamdir and Sorli killed Erp en route, thinking him too young for such an enterprise, and when they found the king they cut off his hands and feet. In the Nibelungeleid she appears as Krimhild and in Wagner as Gutrune.
