The Definitive Study of Odin´s Wife, Frigg.
For more than a millennium, the people of Northern Europe venerated an
Earth goddess, the oldest attested Germanic deity. Called by a number of
names, when the accounts are compared, common traits emerge. She rides
among her people in a wagon inspecting homes during Yule, rewarding the
industrious and punishing the lazy. With her husband, she leads the
fearsome Wild Hunt. Most often identified as Odin´s beloved wife, she is
"Queen of Heaven" and "Mother of the Gods", roles firmly rooted in her
Indo-European pedigree. Only now can the full scope of her reign be revealed.
