The mother-in-law from Hell!

Uta, a.k.a. Grimhild is the widowed queen of Gibech, King of the Niblungs. She is the mother of Gunther, Dankwart, a.k.a. Giselher, as well as daughter Kriemhild. Uta's favorite child Hagen is not the son of Gibech! With her 'Potion of Forgetfulness,' Uta tricks Siegfried into marrying Kriemhild. Uta is a ruthless mother, who eventually condones the murder of Siegfried.
