Skeggiold, Skeggold, Skeggöld or Skeggjöld, is one of the less known Valkyries, the female warriors and psychopomp who guide the souls of the people died in battle to the afterlife, to odin´s sacred hall, The Valhalla. Her name means "axe age" or "big Axe", because of that, its supposed she was somekind of axe or halberd master, a specialist on this kind of weapon, the word is also used to describe the time of war before the ragnarök. She is mentioned in some poetic eddas, like the Grimnismal or the Nafnabulur, along with others Valkyries like Hrund, Geirdriful, Randgríðr and Þrúðr, as soldiers at Odin´s service.
