Sigy married Nobly and had a son named Rerir. He grew to be very strong, and a very capable man indeed. Sigi was later killed by his wife's brothers, who became jealous of his success. Rerir, who had no part in his father's death, built an army of his own, and after establishing his claim to the throne, marched with his troops and killed his uncles, and all the men who had anything to do with the killing of his father.
Rerir and his queen, who is not named, tried for years to produce an heir to the throne, but to no success. They constantly prayed to the Gods and Goddesses for Their help. Great Mother Frigga heard their pleas and told Odin of their need. Odin called forth the daughter of the Jotun, Hrimnir, and gave to her a magic apple. She turned herself into a crow, ( an unusual choice to deliver a fertility charm ), and dropped the apple onto the lap of King Rerir. After eating the apple he, "visited the queen", and she soon became with child.
While campaigning with his troops King Rerir took ill and died. It is said at this point that he went home to Odin. His queen was so distressed by his death that she could not give birth to the child for 6 years. Realizing that she was dying, (carrying a child for 6 years will do that), she asked that the child be cut from out of her womb. The child, a boy, was said to have kissed his mother before she died. He was named, presumably by her, Volsung.
When Volsung became a man, and King of Hunland, the Jotun, Hrimnir, sent his daughter, Hljod, who had brought the magic apple to Rerir, to Volsung, and they were soon married. Together they had ten children; nine sons and a daughter. The eldest, Sigmund and Signy, were twins, and they were the foremost and fairest of face of Volsung's children. It is said that King Volsung built a noble hall in Hunland, in such a way that a big oak - tree stood within the structure, with the limbs of the great tree splaying out over the roof of the hall.

Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love and Thor's protection !
