Vanir Family Tree

Njordr (Old Norse Njrr) is one of the Vanir and the god of wind, fertile land along the seacoast, as well as seamanship, sailing and fishing. The prose Edda says he has the power to calm the sea or fire.

His wife was, according to the Heimskringla, his own sister and lover. Apparently the Vanir, unlike the sir, had the custom of consanguineous marriage.

Vanaheimr is the home of the Vanir.
