Signy

Norse - Goddess of the dawn. Daughter of Volsung. Twin sister of Sigmund. Wife of Siggeir. Mother of Sinfiotli. She married Siggeir, whom she despised for his puny stature and grim nature, without seeing him before the wedding. At the wedding, Odin appeared in disguise and planted a sword in the oak, Branstock. All tried to draw it from the tree but only Sigmund succeeded. When Siggeir killed her father and all her brothers with the exception of Sigmund, she plotted to have him killed by Sigmund and another of the same blood. She sent two of her children by Siggeir to Sigmund to help in the task but they proved useless so she disguised herself and slept with her brother, producing a son, Sinfiotli, who, when old enough, helped his father to kill all Siggeir's children and Siggeir himself by shutting him in the palace and setting it alight. Signy then entered the burning building and died with her husband. In some accounts, referred to as Signy, Sigyn, Sigyn, Signe, Signy, Siguna, Signe, Sygny, Sygny, Signy or Signy.
