     The Bay of the Broken Heart is a bay that is supposedly haunted by the spirit of Chinhilda, the wife of Grimbeard the Ghastly and mother of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock II.


When Hiccup the Second was deemed a runt by the Naming Dame, Grimbeard stole him from Chinhilda and as result she attacked him, but was defeated and banished. During her banishment Chinhilda spent the rest of her life searching for Hiccup II, thus she became the spirit that haunts the Bay of the Broken Heart and supposedly shouts "Hiccup! Hiccup!", desperately searching for her son. This is how the Bay of the Broken Heart got it's name.
