MIDIR

Irish Ruler God

Also known as Midhir

Ruling Chief of the Tuatha-De-Danann

Son of Dagda and quite a ladies man.

His first wife Fúamnach was not at all pleased when he married a second, called Étaín.

He was involved with the Tuatha Dé Danann Dynasty and tended to think of himself more as a politician than a God. A staggering role reversal in our experience.

Naturally he wasn’t too good at it; his policies weakened the Party of Gods, allowing the Milesius Milesian Party to win the next dictatorship.
