Description

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.

This book has 275 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1909.
