A fascinating article. There is often some portion of truth in legends. I wonder what it might be with this one.

vikings, like true warriors, embraced the fears and used them for their benefit against enemies. like the samurai used the fear of spirits and demons in their armors. they embraced the wolf. the legend of Ragnarok and fenrir plays a part of this i would think. the great warriors of legend conquered the fear of death and welcomed the afterlife and in so doing used what others feared most.
