GERMANIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of central Europe and the Anglo-Saxons

NERTHUS

Germanic Fertility Goddess

Also known as Nerþuz

Danish Goddess who may also be known as HERTHA. Nude with naughty bits of over-generous proportions.

She is so mysterious that no-one knows anything about her except a cult so secret no-one knows anything about that either. Her secret is safe with us.

At some point it all got too much and she flipped gender to become NJORD, the Norse Sea God. A real sea change.
