Summary:

The Nibelungenlied, translated as The Song of the Nibelungs, is an epic poem originally written in Middle High German. The story tells of dragon-slayer Siegfried at the court of the Burgundians, how he was murdered, and of his wife Kriemhild's revenge. It is based on pre-Christian Germanic heroic motifs (the Nibelungensaga), which include oral traditions and reports based on historic events and individuals of the 5th and 6th centuries.
