AEGIR

A picture showing the legend of AEGIR taken from our Norse mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Norse Gods, Norse Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

God of the Sea. As with all Sea Gods, he is worshipped and feared by sailors.

It always pays to respect watery Gods, especially AEGIR as he has a fondness for dragging ships and men down to his halls. But as he is well-known for his wonderful parties, it could just be his way of avoiding gate-crashers.

His is married to Sea Goddess RAN, and sea froth is caused by his Underwater Brewery. See also HYMIR.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Aegir graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Aegir movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Aegir statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Aegir. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
