(Norse Deity)NANNA

In a nutshell ...
Norse Goddess of : The Old Moon
Hall : Breidablik (Wide-Shining)
Mount : n/a

The daughter of Nep and wife of Mr Popular Balder. Nanna is Goddess of the moon which could explain why her and Balder, the sun God, are rarely seen together.

Nanna was the half sister of Idun, and the original Granny Smith of Asgard, in charge of dishing out the apples of youth.

 

When she learned that her beloved husband had been rendered dead by his blind brother and a lousy twig she was heart broken, literally, and dropped dead on the spot. Idun took over the apples of youth racket full time.

 

Nanna went with Balder on Hringhorn, almost the hugest ship ever, and even with both of them, Balders horse, Draupnir, and other personal bits and bobs, there was still plenty of room for a dwarf called Litr who just happened to wander by and was booted there by Thor. He can be such a pig!
