Solveig is one of the heroes in Viking Conquest. She is a Norse pagan skjaldmo (shieldmaiden) from Norðvegr (Norway).

She is free to hire. In storymode, she can only join if player chooses to become the enemy of jarl of Kennemer.

Solveig claims to have followed the player for some time, witnessing and recording their exploits, even if they have encountered her very early on in the game. She states that she wishes to join their party to experience firsthand the actions of the player.


"Heill, handsome. I've been watching you a while."

"Calm down, handsome. It is wiser to be grateful, but allow me to introduce myself. My name is Solveig Olafsdottir. I'm not just any woman. I'm a skjaldmo."

"By your face, I see you do not know what I'm talking about. Well, I must admit that there are not many like me, and here even less than in my own land, Northvevgr. So you can understand, a skjaldmo is a virgin who takes the way of weapons. Also poetry, since poetry and war come from the same impulse."

"The main thing is that I have followed and studied you the past few days. I will join you now. You have a great future ahead ,if my intuition serves em well, and I want to share your luck."

"Oh, luck can't be valued too much. this is a harsh, harsh world. The timid die young, handsome, and the bold quickly follow."

"But I am a skjaldmo. I fight like a Valkyrjar and sing as Balder sang before that cunning Loki finished him off mid-stanza. The jarls of Northvegr and Danmark would pay a fortune and their left thumb for me to join them, but the one I choose is you, handsome!"
