As the wife of Odin, Frigg is the highest-ranking female in Asgard, and she’s got the lifestyle to prove it: eleven maidservants who cater to her every demand, an open invitation to sit in Odin’s magic throne, Hildskjalf, and her very own hall, Fensalir.
Frigg is the goddess of marriage, motherhood, fertility, love, and of what the Norse considered “women’s work,” like household management, spinning, and weaving.
People sometimes mix up Frigg and Freya because they’re associated with a lot of the same things, like love and fertility, and both possess magical abilities. But in the Norse tradition, they’re totally different goddesses. If you're looking for some way to remember Frigg, think about this tender moment: she attempts to protect her favorite son, Balder, by forcing every living thing in the world to take an oath never to hurt him. Now that's love.
Queenie, Beloved Lady (Old Saxon Fri), and, not to brag, but some people call me “foremost among the goddesses” (love you, Snorri!)
