Aided by an unwitting Sigurd, Gunnar won the heart of the warrior maiden Brynhildr through trickery and deceit.
Brynhildr, a powerful Valkyrie, was to marry only the most valiant warrior; and was forced to remain sleeping encircled by a magical ring of fire on top of Mt Hindarfjall. Gunnar and his horse, Goti, were unable to traverse the flames, so Sigurd and his horse, Grani, exchanged forms and names with Gunnar and Goti, and rode through the flames without issue. Unaware of their switch, Brynhildr believed Gunnar was worthy of her hand and she consented to marriage.
Upon her marriage, Brynhildr lost her supernatural powers and unhappily resigned herself to her union with Gunnar. Brynhildr soon learns the truth of the marriage and about the deception of Sigurd. Enraged from learning the truth, and at the "trickery" of her former love, Brynhildr orders the killing of Sigurd. Consumed by jealousy, Gunnar aids in the murder of Sigurd consequently breaking the oath he swore to Sigurd. The breaking of this oath meant he would never be able to enter the halls of Valhalla.
