This month of November one of my focus will be on Folklore Heroines.
What better way to start off this month with these feisty warrior spirits?
The Valkyries in Norse mythology are female divine shield-maidens. The name means choosers of the slain. They transport the dead warriors to Valhalla Odin’s hall and the other half are transported to Freyja’s hall Fólkvangr.
