Alrunes
Female demons or sorceresses, the mothers of the Huns in
ancient Germany. They took all sorts of shapes, but without
changing their sex. The name was also given by Germans to little
statues of old sorceresses, about a foot high. To these they
attributed great virtues, honoring them as fetishes; clothing
them richly, housing them comfortably, and serving them with
food and drink at every meal. They believed that if these little
images were neglected, they would bring misfortunes upon the
household.
