Battle of Brávellir (Nordic)
It is said that when the king of Denmark Harald Wartooth lay on his death bed, he summoned for his nephew, Sigurd Hring, the king of Sweden. Harald, realizing he was due to die of old age, and fearing he would spend his afterlife in Niflheim, proposed to Sigurd, they fight a great battle, that he may die a warriors death and ascend to Valhalla. In accordance to the tales of the Danish historian, Saxo Grammaticus, both rulers would prepare for seven long years, gathering armies of 200,000 strong; both their ranks filled with warriors of great renown and legend. The old, half-blind king Harald, rode out to battle, sword in each hand, slaughtering any enemy in front of him. After the deaths of 15 kings, and the sum of 30,000-40,000 men were slain, Harald would meet his end by the hand of the All-father, Odin himself. When Sigurd received word of his opponent's death, he immediately signaled an end to the fighting, rode out to locate Harald's body and horse, and built a funeral pyre so that he may swiftly ride off to the halls of Valhalla.
