Adventure 18, How Siegmund Returned Home Summary

Siegmund approaches Kriemhild, asking her to return home with him to rule Siegfried's lands and care for their son. Kriemhild agrees, but at the insistence of her mother and other brothers-Gernot and Giselher-she changes her mind and chooses to stay in Burgundy. Siegmund makes a final plea for his daughter-in-law to return with him for the sake of her child; but Kriemhild's mind is firm and she entrusts the care of her infant son to Siegfried's men.

Siegfried's warriors vow to return to seek vengeance for their lord. The company departs without an escort from Gunther. Kriemhild remains behind, continuing her mourning each day and finding only small comfort from her brother, Giselher. Brunhild sits in haughtiness, feeling no remorse for Kriemhild's loss. However, Kriemhild will soon seek her vengeance and repay woe for woe.
