Fricka urged this in a manner calculated to show Wotan there would be no more peace in walhall if he flouted his wife.
walhall did not confuse her, for now she caught clues to the meaning of the mighty epic.
Thus urged, but looking thoughtfully at the spot where Erda had disappeared, he permitted himself to be led toward walhall.
heavenly hall in which Odin receives the souls of heroes slain in battle, 1768, from Old Norse Valhöll "hall of the battle-slain;" first element from valr "those slain in battle," from Proto-Germanic *walaz (cf. Old English wæl "slaughter, bodies of the slain," Old High German wal "battlefield, slaughter"), from PIE root *wele- "to strike, wound" (cf. Avestan vareta- "seized, prisoner," Latin veles "ghosts of the dead," Old Irish fuil "blood," Welsh gwel "wound"). Second element is from höll "hall," from PIE root *kel- "to conceal" (see cell). Reintroduced by 18c. antiquaries. Figurative sense is from 1845.
