Badb

In Goidelic mythology, Badb ("raven") or in modern spelling Badhbh was a goddess of war who took the form of ravens, thus known as Badb Catha ("battle raven"). She often caused confusion among soldiers to move the tide of battle to her favored side. Battlefields were called the land of Badb.

With Macha and Anann, she was part of a triumvirate of war goddesses.
