[Illustration: _HOW KRIEMHILD IS LED TO ETZEL._

From the Hundeshagen Nibelungen manuscripts of the 10th
century, in the Royal Library at Berlin.

"Let the messenger ride and thus we make
Known to you how the queen rode the country."

Kriemhild is the legendary heroine of the "Nibelungenlied,"
and the rival of Brunhild. She was the wife of Siegfried
who was slain by her brothers. Later, as the wife of Etzel
(Attila) King of the Huns, she avenged the murder of
Siegfried by compassing the death of her brothers, but was
herself slain.]
