When the Danes learned of Smaland' s precarious situation, they took advantage of it and attacked the defenseless small lands. Blenda was a woman of noble descent in the Konga Hundred and she decided to rally all the womenfolk in the Hundreds of Konga, Albo, Kinnevald, Norvidinnge and Uppvidinge. The women armies assembled on the Bravellir, which according to tradition is located in Varend and not in Ostergotland
The women approached the Danes and told them how much they were impressed with the Danish men. They invited the men to a banquet where they were provided with food and drink. After a long evening, the Danish warriors fell asleep and the women killed every single one of them with axes and staffs.
When King Alle returned, he bestowed new rights on the women. They acquired equal inheritance with their brothers and husbands, the right always to wear a belt around their waists as a sign of eternal vigilance, the right to beat the drum at weddings, and so forth. The five hundreds were combined into the land of Varend, which means the "defense", since it was a bulwark for Geatland. Blenda's village was called Varnslanda and a location near the battle ground was called Blandinge.
