The Saxon Stories[]

She came from Hocchale, a village north of Dunholm. She tried to poison Kjartan and then was thrown into the guard dogs' den. She is mentioned by Sihtric in "The Lords of the North" when he and the other warriors try to capture Dunholm.

She probably gave birth to Sihtric in 867 as Sihtirc is mentioned in the novel "Sword Song" as 18 years old and the novel takes place in the year 885.
