|Brynhild is a mythological queen of Iceland that appears in the German Nibelungenlied, in the Icelandic eddas, the Völsunga saga and Thidrekssaga, but her story is told very differently in all those sources. It is speculated that she is based on the Visigothic princess Brunichild who married a Merowingian king in the 6th century. The sagas containing Brynhild, however, origin in the 13th century. I depicted the mythological figure, therefor the clothing doesn't match any historic period. I wanted to show her as both the queen and the warrior she was, proud and mighty.
