Sigewif
Derog.
Old Norse


An elite crop of mythical shieldmaidens who fought alongside soldiers in battle. She is a fearsome thing to behold, a woman of great victory. Translated from an Anglo-Saxon metrical charm based on taming honey bees, to mean “victorious woman” considering that bees swarm and sting. Some scholars have suggested the term is but a mere metaphor for “victorious sword”.
