In Norse mythology, a Valkyrie is one of a host of female figures who decide who will die in battle. Selecting among those who die in battle, the Valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the God Odin.
VALHALLA - this is the place where the Vikings that died in battle would go for the afterlife. VALHALLA was located in ASGARD, where there were 540 doors. The doors were so wide that through each huge door, 800 warriors could walk side by side.
“It is better to live on the sea and let other men raise your crops and cook your meals. A house smells of smoke, a ship smells of frolic. From a house you see a sooty roof, from a ship you see Valhalla.
