A shieldmaiden (Old Norse: skjaldmær, Danish: skjoldmø, Norwegian: skjoldmøy, Swedish: sköldmö, German: Schildmaid) in Scandinavian folklore and mythology was a woman who had chosen to fight as a warrior. They are often mentioned in sagas such as Hervarar saga ok Heiðreks and in Gesta Danorum. Shieldmaidens also appear in stories of other Germanic peoples: Goths, Cimbri, and Marcomanni. The mythical valkyries may have been based on the shieldmaidens. The historical existence of shieldmaidens is heavily debated, but scholars including Lars Magnar Enoksen, Neil Price, and scholar Britt-Mari Näsström argue evidence for their existence, while scholar Judith Jesch disagrees, citing lack of hard evidence.

  • Eine Schildmaid (isl. skjaldmær, schwed. sköldmö, dän. skjoldmø) wird in der skandinavischen Mythologie eine Frau genannt, die sich für ein Leben als Kriegerin entschieden hat.
  • Volgens het Nordisk familjebok, verschijnen schildmaagden ook in verhalen van andere Germaanse volkeren: de Goten, de Cimbren en de Marcomannen. Ze waren de inspiratie van J.R.R. Tolkien voor Éowyn. Voorbeelden van schildmaagden uit de sagen zijn Brynhilde in de Volsunga saga, Hervor in de Hervarar saga, Brynhilde uit de Bósa saga ok Herrauds, de Zweedse prinses Thornbjörg in Hrólfs saga Gautrekssonar en Hed, Visna en Veborg in de Gesta Danorum. Volgens Saxo Grammaticus vochten 300 schildmaagden aan de Deense kant in de slag bij Bråvalla in 750.
  • Uma skjaldmö (skjaldmær em islandês, sköldmö em sueco), ou donzela escudeira, era uma virgem que costumava lutar como um guerreiro, na mitologia nórdica. São mencionadas com frequência nas sagas, como na Saga de Hervör e Gesta Danorum. De acordo com a enciclopédia sueca Nordisk familjebok, as skjaldmö aparecem também em histórias de outras nações germânicas: os godos, e as tribos dos cimbros e marcomanos. Elas foram a principal inspiração para as valquírias, e também a inspiração de J. R. R. Tolkien para a personagem Éowyn, chamada de "shieldmaiden of Rohan" (Escudeira de Rohan).
  • Una skjaldmö (skjaldmær en islandés, sköldmö en sueco), o doncella escudera, era una virgen que había elegido pelear como un guerrero en la mitología nórdica. Son mencionadas con frecuencia en sagas tales como la saga Hervarar y en Gesta Danorum. Ejemplos de nombres de doncellas escuderas mencionadas en sagas nórdicas incluyen a Brynhildr en la saga Volsunga, Hervör en la saga Hervarar, la princesa sueca Thornbjörg en Hrólfs saga Gautrekssonar y Hed, Visna y Veborg en Gesta Danorum. El mismo Saxo Grammaticus las definía así:
  • Una skjaldmær (sköldmö in svedese, skjoldmø in norvegese), nota in inglese come shieldmaiden, nella mitologia norrena, era una donna che aveva scelto di combattere come guerriero. Queste donne combattenti sono spesso menzionate nelle saghe, ad esempio nel Gesta Danorum. Secondo il Nordisk familjebok, le skjaldmær appartengono anche ad altre popolazioni germaniche, come i Goti, i Cimbri e i Marcomanni. Erano ispirate dalle valchirie e una loro trasposizione si trova nell'opera di J.R.R. Tolkien "Il Signore degli Anelli", nel personaggio di Éowyn.
  • La skjaldmö est un terme en vieux norrois qui désigne une jeune femme guerrière armée d'un bouclier dans la mythologie nordique. Le mythe de la walkyrie est fondé sur l'épopée des skjaldmös. Les skjaldmös ne sont pas sans rappeler le mythe grec des amazones. La Saga de Hervor et du roi Heidrekr décrit ces femmes combattantes et notamment l'héroïne de cette saga, Hervor et sa mort. La Gesta Danorum (la Geste des Danois) raconte le déroulement de la bataille de Brávellir au cours de laquelle plusieurs centaines de skjaldmös participèrent au combat.
