Signy, in Norse mythology, was a daughter of king Wolsung, and was married against her consent to Siggnir of Gothland. She had feared that her husband would bring misfortune to her family, and her dread was realized in the murder of her father and eight of her brothers, Sigmund, the ninth brother, being rescued by her. She lived in concealment in a hut in the forest with Sigmund, and having presented herself before him in a changed form, she conceived a son, who was afterwards known as Sinfioetli, and who consequently belonged to. the Wolsung race by descent from both his father and his mother. Like his father, he was immensely strong. Sigmund and Signy avenged the murder of their father in the blood of Signy's husband, and Signy then caused herself to be burned with the corpse, as she had no wish to live after her revenge had been inflicted.
