The Völsunga saga (often referred to in English as the Volsunga Saga or Saga of the Völsungs) is a legendary saga, a late 13th century poetic rendition in the Icelandic language of the origin and decline of the Völsung clan (including the story of Sigurd and Brynhild and destruction of the Burgundians).
The saga covers themes including the power struggles among Sigurd’s ancestors; Sigurd’s killing of the dragon Fafnir; and the influence of the cursed ring Andvaranaut.
The saga has given rise to operatic and literary adaptations including Richard Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen, Henrik Ibsen’s The Vikings at Helgeland, William Morris’s The Story of Sigurd the Volsung and the Fall of the Niblungs, and J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún.
