Colored Art Print "Ride of the Valkyries" by William T. Maud (1865 - 1903).
Valkyria is the Old Norse word for Valkyrie. Wal stands for "heap slain" and kyria stands for "voter". The warriors are both Odin's helpers and his daughters. They fulfill the wishes of the whalvaters, choose warriors who fell in battle and bring them to Him. The Valkyries can also intervene in battles and determine destiny.
The function of the Valkyries is therefore similar to that of the three Norns. It is believed that the youngest Norne Skuld was also a Valkyrie.
The warriors live as well as the Einherjer in Valhalla. She lives in Winghall, Wingolf, the Hall of Friendship.
In the Northern Lights, the Vikings saw the presence of the Valkyries on Earth. Somewhere on earth a great battle was fought, they believed. The moon reflected the gold armor of the Valkyries as they rode across the battlefield and selected the Einherjers. As a result, according to legend, the aurora was conjured up to the sky.
