The battle of Badon was a major battle between the Waelish and the Weswarans. It occurred in the time of Ealstan's grandfather, who fought in the battle[1].

The Waelish were led by their king, the Black Bear, who had corrupted the wights and commanded monsters, including the wolf Fenris. The gods initially refused to intervene in the battle, fearing the end of the world, but eventually Friag appeared. Her boasts bound the Black Bear to his land. Fenris killed Friag but was bound to the hill of the Black Bear with her dying breath. According to fate, it should have been Tiw who was killed instead[2].

In response to the death of Friag, Woden forbade humans to use writing, which had been Friag's invention[2].
