SYNOPSIS:

Official Site: Europe – the Dark Ages.  When the evil Twin Kings betray his father, the King of Xanten, the young prince Siegfried narrowly escapes with his life.   Rescued by the kindly blacksmith Eyvind, he is raised as a simple blacksmith, unaware of his true kingly heritage.  When the gods send him a sign of his destiny in the form of a fallen meteor, he is led both to the metal which will be forged into his destined weapon, and the woman fated to be his love, Brunhild, the Valkyrie warrior queen.  Duty drives them apart, but they swear to reunite and never to leave another.

Siegfried comes to the kingdom of Burgund, where he earns the respect of its king, Gunther and the love of the princess Kriemheld.  But a powerful evil is plaguing the land, and it is up to Siegfried, armed only with the sword forged from the god’s metal, to slay the dragon Fafnir – and to claim the dragon’s gold as his own.  With this treasure comes the curse of its rightful owners, the mystic Nibelungs, and the hatred of Gunther’s adviser, the villainous Hagen, who covets the gold for his own.  To gain the treasure, Hagen uses black magic to make Siegrfied fall in love with Kriemhild and forget Burnhild, the love the gods had chosen for him.  The curse then spins an expanding web of betrayal, deception and greed that traps everyone, plunging a world into chaos.

Note:  Giselher is the younger brother of King Gunther .
