(Norse Deity) FREYJA

Also known as FREA, FREYA, GEFN, GULLVEIG, HEIDH, HÖRN, HREDA,
In a nutshell ...
God of : Sex
Attributes :
Hall : Sessrumnir (Rich in Seats)
Mount : Hildisvín (battle pig)

The Norse Goddess often associated with love, desire and fertility .. lets cut to the chase - she was the goddess of sex.

Freyja was Frey's twin and probably married him at some point, which was all the rage in god-land, before he fell in lust with Gerd and had Skirnir batter her into submission, psycologically that is.

She then married Odr but maybe she was put off by his odour, because although they had two beautiful daughters called Hnoss and Gersemi it didn't stop her from putting herself about a bit.

It was the necklace you see? Brisingmamen - which looks a bit like 'bring me men' if you read it fast. It made her irresistable to men and Gods alike. Stories of how it came into her posession are outrageous, especially the one that claims it was a 'gift' after a five-some with the four lucky dwarves who crafted it!

Her hall was called Sessrumnir which was in Folkvangr, the place where half of those fallen battle heroes would find themselves. Rumour has it Valhalla was the place to be, but i'm sure deep down most of the gloriously defeated warriors wouldn't mind if they ended up at Fre's place. Apparently she puts on a cracking show to keep the troops entertained.

She has many aliases, some of which could just be a case of mistaken identity and can lead to much confusion : Syr, Gefn, Mardöll, Gullveig, Heidh, Hreda and Hörn, amongst others.

She may also be Men-glad in disguise - the name says it all. But deep down, she still misses Odr and as she travels the world looking for her first true love she still weeps tears of pure gold.

Meet the family ...
Parents : Njord and Nerthus
