Thidrekssaga XI: Sigfrid’s death

Just now I published part XI of the Thidrekssaga: Sigfrid’s death.

The story now switches to the Niflungen and Sigfrid. First Sigfrid’s youth is treated — and it sometimes seems a parody of the traditional hero’s story. Then the Niflungen are briefly introduced and Hagen loses his eye. Then the marriages of Sigfrid with Grimhild and Gunther with Brunhild are related.

Finally, Grimhild and Brunhild quarrel, and Hagen decides to kill Sigfrid. This sets the stage for Grimhild’s revenge.

Enjoy.
