A shieldmaiden is a female warrior from Norse mythology.

During the Viking expansion, a number of shieldmaidens fought within the Great Heathen Army, such as Eivor Varinsdottir, Soma, Valdis, and Halfdan Ragnarsson's mother Lagertha.[1]

Behind the scenes

From a historical standpoint, many scholars are split on the concept of shieldmaidens. Some believe they only existed in story, while others believe there is a historical basis for the idea.
