Horsa was an Aesir warrior part of a band led by Niord who allied with another Aesir band led by Wulfhere and including the young Conan of Cimmeria.

As Wulfhere's band was waiting for the coming of Niord and his fighting-men, both bands were attacked by the Vanir. All of Wulfhere's men were slain save for Conan. On his side, Niord fought his way out of the Vanir ambush with a few men, including Horsa and old Gorm.

Niord's band finally found Conan after he had been chasing Atali, daughter of the Ymir, the Frost-Giant, and Horsa helped him recover. While Gorm confirmed Conan's tale, Niord stated that Gorm had had his mind touched in his youth. When Conan found Atali's veil in his hand, all warriors stared in silence the proof.[2]
