Volsung is one of the eight high-ranked dragon priests in Skyrim. Volsung drops an eponymous mask, which makes prices better by 20%, increases carrying weight by 20 points, and gives waterbreathing.

Volsung can be found in Volskygge in northwestern Skyrim. Note that you can just climb the mountain above the entrance and skip the dungeon entirely.
