Where is the oldest manuscript of this subject ? Whithouth source is not FalsifiableNasz 10:12, 14 February 2007 (UTC) The links on page had not very sholarly nature.
I've been reading about this all my life and the saga is always referred to in English as Volsunga Saga. NO umlaut. Why do we suddenly need one here in the English-language wiki? It seems superfluous and un-English. Evangeline (talk) 22:11, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
I agree, it would probably better to move it to Völsunga Saga. However it's not critical as long as there are redirects. Cilibinarii (talk) 15:26, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
"Odin appears a number of times to assist characters with his magic and powers. At the start of the saga, he guides his son Sigi out of the underworld." Not so, the saga says nothing of the underworld. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:16, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
"The Norse Epic of Sigurd the Dragon Slayer" is only the subtitle of Jesse L Byock's translation. In Old Icelandic it is Völsunga saga (complete with umlaut). This does not imply that Sigurd is the central character of the entire narrative. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 13:56, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
I see that a merger of Völsung Cycle to this article was proposed in 2010. I have just reverted someone making that article into a redirect here, so I had better state my disagreement with the proposal. The Völsung stories are also told in the "heroic" poems of the Poetic Edda and in the Nibelungenlied, so there should be a separate article on the cycle itself, although it is badly in need of expansion.

An IP editor has drafted a possible extension to the Context section. This may well contain useful ideas, but without cited references, both to the Völsunga saga and to reliable sources (presumably, academic critics of the VS), it reads as WP:OR. Suitably cited, more explanation of the context would be welcome. Chiswick Chap (talk) 08:22, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
