Mjaðveig daughter of Máni

Illustration loosely based on an Icelandic tale called "Sagan af Mjaðveigu Mánadóttur" (with some huuuuge northern gannets).
Mjaðveig is the daughter of the king Máni. As the king just looses his wife, he sends messengers to find a new queen. His men travel a long time. Oneday, they hear some bewitching melody, played by a beautiful lady and her own daughter.
They bring them back to the kingdom, and the lady marries the king.
But as you may imagine, the new queen and her daughter won't be so well-intentioned towards Mjaðveig...
