Sovngarde is the part of Aetherius where Nords go to after death. It is ruled by Shor and contains the Hall of Valor, a supposedly gigantic feasting hall where the mead "flows like a waterfall". In 4E 201, Alduin retreated there to ensnare and feast upon the souls of the dead. He was killed by the Dovahkiin, who fought alongside three other ancient Nord heroes who resided there.
Except in rare cases where one forces their way into Sovngarde, it can supposedly only be reached by true Nords who die valiantly or in battle, regardless of personality. This excludes those afflicted with Lycanthropy, as Hircine takes them to his hunting grounds instead.
