The Vikings considered the northern lights a gleam of armour from the Valkyrie, mythical female warriors who brought the souls of deceased soldiers to Valhalla. These days, the locals refer to the lights as “the green lady” instead of the Valkrie.
Norway’s first monarch was a Viking by the name of Harald Fairhair. He succeeded his father by the age of 10, and ended up becoming one the best warriors in his era. Fairhair claimed all of Norway under his domain.
