Norse history remembers and gives a Festival to, Sigurd, the son of, Sigmund.
Sigmund happened to die in a battle with Odin. His son, Sigurd, though, took his father’s shattered sword used in that battle and killed the Dragon called, Fafnir. After drinking the Dragon’s blood, Sigurd, inherited the power of wisdom.
Now, even though Odin and Sigmund were sworn enemies, Odin actually came to Sigurd many times in different disguises attempting to guide him on his destiny.
