Trivia

  • Drottinn Hrothgar is most likely named after the character in Beowulf, Hrothgar, who is king of the Danes. This is further supported by the fact that the vrykul have a strong viking theme to them and Beowulf is one of the only and most popular pieces of viking literature (Old English) to have survived to the present day.
  • Dróttinn is the Old Norse word for "Lord", of which Drottinn is the modern Icelandic word.
  • In the The Grand Tournament expansion for Hearthstone, there is an epic warrior card called "Sea Reaver". The artwork for this card is labeled on the artist's DeviantArt site as "Hrothgar-The Sea Reaver",[1] but the name "Hrothgar" is never actually used in-game.
