Freya (Frigg)

Freya is the wife of Odin and is best known in popular imagination as a beautiful and seductive Goddess, a well-proportioned strawberry blonde with a taste for Love. She is the powerful goddess Frigg who can see the future but tells no one.

Vikings worshiped Freya, the goddess of Love and Beauty. They prayed to her for rain and good harvest. Until now peasants in Scandinavian countries leave jugs filled with milk to propitiate Freya.

According to the legend, Freya travels in the heavens in the chariot pulled by two giant, blue cats. These cats are the children of the magic Cat Bayun that have been presented to Freya by Thor the Thunderer.

She has a brother too - Frey.
