Valhalla is the sixth and final of the Viking sagas. The tale follows the story of Balthasar, King of Norway, as he tries to maintain peace in the kingdom. It also explores the theme of war between two major powers, but with the backdrop of the religious beliefs of both the ancient Norse and Christian Scandinavians.
Valhalla is thought to be a reference to the place where Odin (god of war) and Thor (god of lightning) were killed and placed after death. They are both said to lie in a well called 'Vulosa'. In this well, the two gods are protected from the spirits of those who have died recently by a guardian named Freyja (the goddess of love). But with the coming of Christianity, the spirits of the dead are no longer protected.
Sigrid was born to King Egil and his queen Frigg. Her mother, Inge, was also a daughter of King Sweyn and Queen Frigga. She is never revealed to have a sister, although Frigg gives the name of 'Brunhild' to the young queen. And though she is praised for the beauty of her face, we never see Sigrid's eyes, only her hair, so the manner of her death is unknown.
Ragnar Lodbrok was one of the sons of Prince Ubbe. He became the first King of the Danes after the death of his father.
His royal marriage to his mother's sister, Kjartan, caused some conflict between them. Ragnar later helped to destroy the Kingdom of Denmark. He and his brother Gudlaug were executed together. As they are being led to their deaths, they both asked to be killed by way of a spear, but Ragnar refused to kill his brother.
Gudlog tried to end his life by throwing himself into the sea, but the young ones who witnessed this begged him to stop. To protect his followers, he refused. Instead, he turned back to land and begged Ragnar to forgive him for killing his brother.
And Ragnar later forgave his brother and took him as his own son. He named him Ragnar, which means "the avenger". Then he instructed him to lead a revolt against the remaining members of the Danes, and if possible kill King Harald as well.
Ragnar heard an angelic voice saying that he must not enter into the forest. So he went to seek his revenge. He entered the forest and killed Harald's sons.
