Hubris is dangerous, however, and Siegfried may discover to his cost that he has one significant area of vulnerability. The second part, 'Kriemhild's Revenge', follows Princess Kriemheld (Margarete Schön), as she struggles to find a life beyond her love, Siegfried, amidst a kingdom torn apart by war and turmoil.
