With the Nibelung crown, a magic sword and made invulnerable with dragon’s blood, Siegfried decides to brave yet another adventure of a different kind. He conquers the heart of the beautiful Kriemhild, and also helps her brother to the woman of his dreams. They all would live happily ever after, if it weren’t for evil Hagen of Tronje.
