(Norse Creature)HILD

Also known as HILDR

According to Úlf Uggason’s Húsdrápa - "The very powerful Hild of the mountains caused the sea-Sleipnir to trudge forward; but the wielders of the helmet flames of Hropt felled her mount."

Linguistic issues aside, and reading between the lines, this equates to a giantess launching Balders funeral boat as Odin's berserkers rendered her means of transport horizontal.

So, Hild is actually Hyrrokin, the giantess with a zillion aliases. Why didn't he just say that in the first place?
