Guttorm

Norse - Son of Giuki and Grimhild. Brother of Gunnar, Gudrun and Hogni. His brothers Gunnar and Hogni had become blood-brothers of Sigurd who had married their sister, Gudrun. When Gunnar's wife, Brunhild, quarrelled with Gudrun, she asked Gunnar to kill Sigurd. He would not kill a blood-brother so the deed was done by Guttorm who drove his spear into Sigurd's back while he slept. With a dying convulsion, Sigurd flung his sword at the fleeing Guttorm, cutting him in half. Sometimes identified as Guttorm, Guttormr or Guttormr.
