If you choose the Empire and do the Civil War prior to the Main Quest, then manage to get to Sovngarde, you can meet Ulfric in Sovngarde. Does that not mean that his motives were ultimately for good, and he died a hero?
would that also mean the Stormcloaks is the ultimate choice? --- Scrawn
No Sovngarde is for Nords who die in battle regardless of what they did in life
Actually I think it is for the honored dead only. He may have been partially motivated by a desire for the throne but he still died fighting for his homeland. Whoever/whatever decides if a person goes to Sovngarde must have seen some honor in his actions and death.
He always fought for what he believed in: making himself the High King. --- Look, for the last time: Kirby has explained it over and over! http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk138/Schesparn/11911255317531.gif
Proved their mettle in combat would be a more accurate way to put it honestly, as Torygg is there and I'm fairly sure he didn't fight in any wars. --- "You persist too long after your own defeat. Come then, warrior. Have your resolution."
