The Morrígan (“phantom queen”), also spelt Morríghan or Mór-ríoghain in Modern Irish, is a figure from Irish mythology.
The Morrígan is a goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty. She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors, and in the Ulster Cycle she also takes the forms of a wolf. She is generally considered a war deity comparable with the Germanic Valkyries.
She is often depicted as a trio of goddesses, all sisters. Although membership of the triad varies, the most commonly combinations are Badb, Macha and Nemain.
