Summary
In the face of the battle, Siegmund, fathered by Wotan, discovers that Sieglinde is his twin sister. Yet, they join as man and wife. Wotan knows he must kill Siegmund for the violation of the laws of matrimony. But unable to bear the agony of the deed, he sends the Valkyrie Brunnhilde, in his place. Brunnhilde takes mercy on the two lovers. In anguish, Wotan causes Siegmund's death by shattering his sword in battle. Brunnhilde is made mortal as punishment for betraying Wotan, and he surrounds her with a wall of flame that can only be broken by a hero. A wall of flame. A portent of the fall of the Gods
