Alfhild

According to Saxo Grammaticus' Gesta Danorum, Alfhild was a daughter of the Geatish king Siward. She was a shieldmaiden who had her own fleet of long-ships with crews of young female pirates and raided along the coasts of the Baltic Sea. The story is doubted by some historical scholars and considered to be a legend.

Anglicized as Awilda or Alvilda
