Godchecker's mythology encyclopedia

Also known as FRIGGA, FRIG

Top Norse Goddess of Marriage and Motherhood

She's a deity who tends to cause a little confusion. Is she the wife or daughter of ODIN? Was she BALDUR'S mum? Is Friday really FRIGG's day? Even Godchecker is more baffled than usual and may have to visit the Well of Urd for some answers.

However, our tireless research has come up with the following facts: FRIGG is ODIN's wife and mother of BALDUR, who she tried her best to save from a gruesome mistletoe-based death. As Queen of ASGARD, she seems quite a sassy lady, keeps ODIN in check and usually gets her way (unless mistletoe is involved).

FRIGG knows everybody's destiny, but will never reveal it. She is also in charge of housekeeping on a big scale. She rides a broom and sweeps away clouds when they pile up. Sort of air traffic control for the Gods. Or could it be something to do with witchcraft? And because she was best mates with VENUS, the Nords decided to borrow Venus's day and turn it into FRIGG's day. So thank FRIGG it's Friday.
