Tyrfing is a legendary sword in Norse mythology and Germanic sagas.
Forging of Tyrfing: According to the most well-known version found in the Hervarar saga, Tyrfing was crafted by the dwarves Dvalin and Durin for the Swedish king Svafrlami. The dwarves, however, cursed the sword, predicting that it would bring about the death of a man every time it was unsheathed.
The Curse: The curse on Tyrfing played a significant role in the sword's story. The blade would always deal deadly blows, but it would also be responsible for great tragedy and loss, as foretold by the dwarves who forged it.
Svafrlami's Death: King Svafrlami used Tyrfing to conquer many lands, fulfilling the dwarves' prophecy. However, his own demise came when the sword was turned against him. Svafrlami was killed by the berserker Arngrim, who took possession of Tyrfing.
Berserker's Tale: Tyrfing passed through several hands, leading to various tragic events. Arngrim's sons inherited the sword, and they, too, faced a series of misfortunes and deaths due to Tyrfing's curse.
Angantyr's Tale: One of Arngrim's sons, Angantyr, inherited Tyrfing and faced his own tragic fate. The sword played a central role in the epic battle known as the Battle of the Goths and the Huns (the Hlöðskviða), where Angantyr and his brothers perished.
The Burial: After the battle, Tyrfing was buried with Angantyr, but it was said that the sword's curse endured. It was destined to cause more strife in the future.
