Hagbards Gallows The name comes from an Old Nordic legend about Hagbard and Signe. A Viking from Trondheim, Hagbard, embarking on a Viking raid for war. Off the coast of Halland in Sweden, he encounters the local king Sigvards armed forces. After fight they make peace since victory eludes them both. Hagbard then meets the king Sigvards daughter, Signe. Love emerges between them, but because of the long-standing enmity between their families, marriage is not possible. Hagbard tries to secretly courtship Signe, but gets arrested upon disclosure of the scam. He is sentenced to death at the court in Asige. Signe had promised to follow Hagbard in death and Hagbard lured Signe to proove her faith. As his last wish, he therefore asked that his dress to be shown up first in the gallows. Upon this sight Signe thinks that Hagbard has been hunged, she burns herself inside her castle with her bridesmaids. When Hagbard sees the smoke from the castle, he calmly walks to his death.
