All her knowledge came from classic literature; she has never been to Greece, and never participated in archaeology. Her father began teaching her Latin when she was seven years old and soon added Greek, French, and German to her curriculum.

I was pleased to see the Volsungasaga included, since it is so often replaced by the Nibelungenlied (the Germanic version of Sigfried and his messed up love life), but then as I read it I found to my dismay: "The story of Siegfried is so familiar that that of his Norse prototype Sigurd can be briefly told.
