If you enjoy Norse mythology, then you’ve likely heard of their seidkonas and volur using magic to help tip the tide of battle. Featuring in many sagas, these folk skilled in witchcraft, charming, and influencing the threads of fate are fascinating to read about.
What we don’t see very often, is accounts of these sorceresses from the people that were fighting against them. Let alone, the locals using magic of their own against these Norse invaders.
The Norse King’s Sorcerous Daughter is one such story, from Scotland, and tells about how magic was used to fend off viking invaders that were wreaking havoc along the west coast.
