With the impressive mound Valsgärde 57, containing a female cremation grave from c. 700 AD, as the starting point, two richly furnished female cremation graves from the first half of the 10th century AD, Valsgärde 85 and 94, are discussed. An analysis of the find assemblages leads to the conclusion that the two vomen represent both social and religious power.
