Norse - Son of Studas. Son of Volund, in some accounts. In the Germanic stories, Studas gave his son the marvellous sword, Blutgang, with which he challenged Dietrich von Bern. He was defeated and became a devoted follower of Dietrich to whom he gave the horse, Falke, which never grew tired. When he saw Wittich fall in battle, he took his famous sword, Miming, thinking the owner was dead. When he later discovered that Wittich had survived, he returned the sword. He later fell out with Dietrich and became the leader of a band of robbers. Identified as Heime, Wittich, Wittich, Witege, Wittig, Vigda, Witege, Anglo-Saxon Widia, Heimir or Heimir.
