When do the hordettes appear?

Orm

They appear alongside the horde. If one appears, then so does the other. Historically, only the horde is counted, and then you know the number of hordettes as well. And the reason for this type of counting is because the horde arrived slightly before the hordettes and made an armed impression.


The hordettes are armed and are included in the reserves. Their bows have a weaker pull.

How about some being a "shield matron?"

Hordettes are not to be confused with Rockettes. At least not until they discover the stirrup.

Shield-maiden - a female Viking warrior.

Shield-maidens might be the origin for the valkyrie legends.

There are some evidence that there where female Viking warriors. And I suspect that there were plenty of them, especially when considering the important role the female had in Norse society. However, as far as I know, the jury is still out on this one.

At least one saga has it that their naked lady parts scared the enemy so they ran away.

And I suspect that their axes, spears, or swords, might distract you plenty when the weapons impact some of your body parts.

Indeed.

Many of the Nordic invaders panicked, having never seen such weaponry. As men fled during the confusion, Freydís, who was eight-months pregnant, admonished them saying:

"Why run you away from such worthless creatures, stout men that ye are, when, as seems to me likely you might slaughter them like so many cattle? Give me a weapon! I know I could fight better than any of you." Ignored, Freydís then picks up the sword of the fallen Snorri Thorbrandsson and engages the attacking natives. She undoes her garment exposing one breast and beating the sword's hilt on her chest gave a furious battle cry. With this, the natives retreated to their boats and fled.

They have worse things than pickled herring. They have lutefisk (aka fish boards) and Surströmming.

I think some poetic license is in order when you tell a story that lasts a thousand years.

Anyway. The story doesn't really involve Sweden. It is an excerpt from the Greenland Saga. So the action is taking place somewhere in America. Although at the time no one knew it as America. The Norse called it Vinland, and I have no idea what the natives called it (sadly, my education missed that part).

Vinland was Newfoundland/other places. The Norse made up the name 'Greenland' after a bad experience with an Icelandic travel agent.
How did the Vikings send secret messages? They used Norse Code.

I had a Newfoundland dog once. Speaking of dogs, I googled "Imperial Guards Div" recently but accidently mis-clicked on "Imperial Guards Dog" instead.
Got me to pondering other similar mis-clicks on the interweb. This one turned out relatively benign.

If Don Adams, Bob Bell (Chicago Bozo the clown), Bob Burns, Drew Carey, Bob Keeshan (Captain Kangaroo, original Clarabell the Clown on Howdy Doody), and Jonathan Winters were all members of the US Marines, does the US Marine Corps somehow help people to become comedians? There are more as well, including actors and writers of comedy.
