Sieglinde

Norse - A childhood companion of Siegmund. Daughter of Sigeher. Wife of Hunding, some say. Mother of Siegfried by Siegmund. In the Wagnerian story, she was carried off by a hunter and Siegmund vowed vengeance but could not find her. Years later, she was restored to Siegmund but the hunter followed her and killed Siegmund in a duel when Odin intervened to break Siegmund's magic sword, the Sword of Need. Sieglinde was carried off to safety by Brunhild who gave her the pieces of the broken sword to keep in trust for her son. She handed the baby to the dwarf, Mime, to be reared.
