Hagena and Heoden
The tale of Hagena and Heoden remained popular long enough to receive a romantic treatment in the German Kudrun. Its roots are darker and more tragic, befitting a Northern legend. The Hjaðningavíg, or, battle of the Heodenings, is the story of the endless cycle of death and reanimation of Heoden and Hagena's armies by the lost daughter and wife, Hild.
