ⓘ Frigg

Frigg is the goddess of marriage, family, and motherhood in Norse mythology. She is the wife of Odin, by whom she is the mother of Baldr and Hodr, and stepmother of Thor and Vidarr. Ruling Asgard as queen alongside the All-Father, Frigg often dwells in the dense, foggy lands of Fensalir when her husband is away on one of his quests for knowledge; additionally, she is the only one besides Odin permitted to sit on his throne Hlidskjalf, and look out across the Nine Realms. Serving as Friggs attendants are Eir, the gods doctor and goddess of healing, Hlin, Gna, and Fulla. It is unclear whether Friggs companions and attendants are simply different aspects of Frigg herself.
