</table>Hrafnhildur Rögnvaldurdottir is a Fjallandic politician, and Varaformaður of Nordic Republic of Fjalland. She has been serving in such a capacity since the 2003 elections in Fjalland, serving as Friðbjörn Þórhallursson's running mate in 2003 and 2009. Hrafnhildur's politicial influence as the former Formaður of the Viðskipti League between 1995–2002, gave her many connections within the world of politics in Fjalland, and catapulting her into the second-most powerful position in her nation.
In her youth, Hrafnhildur was a staunch anti-abortion leader, and was present at the 1989 Friðgerður v. Eymundur case, which was a landmark decision to include anti-abortion laws into the constitution of Fjalland. Hrafnhildur later career was marked by her entry into politics as a spokesperson for the Viðskipti League opposition party, afterwhich she later became the chairperson in 1995, and ran unsuccessfully for the office of Höfðingi in 1997, losing to Aðalsteinn Þorkellsson instead. Her fiery personality attracted the attention of Friðbjörn Þórhallursson, who had been looking for strong speaker to support his run for the office in 2003.
In2003, Hrafnhildur was given the chance to become Friðbjörn's running mate, upon which she accepted, and was critical in reforming parts of the government for the better. Since then, Hrafnhildur has become an icon for Fjallander women seeking to enter politics, and is still a major anti-abortionist, making routine trips to other nations to speak at rallies condeming the act. While she has lost much support from feminists who believe her to be denying women the "right to choose", Hrafnhildur states that murder is never a choice, and that she will always oppose it.
