Let me talk about one of my favorite woman in Viking ages, Freydís Eiríksdóttir 🏻🦰 She was on exploration in Vinland when one evening her and fellow Vikings were attacked by the North American natives. They used a weird noise making weapon that the Vikings had never heard of and out of fear they fled. All except Freydís. She called out to her fellow Vikings - “Why run you away from such worthless creatures, stout men that you are, when, as seems to me likely, you might slaughter them like so many cattle? Let me but have a weapon; I think I could fight better than any of you.” The men did not listen to her and continued to flee out of fear. She was not easy to scare and stepped out to defend herself. She grabbed a sword, bared her breasts at her enemies, beat them with the flat side of the sword and screamed. This was unexpected for many reasons and scared the attackers. They ran off in fear at the sight of this wild woman. Freydís and her crew decided it was time to return to Greenland because they were greatly outnumbered by the Skræling.
