Aesirs Family Tree

Njordr (Old Norse Nj÷r­r) 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 Ăsir, had the custom of consanguineous marriage.

Vanaheimr is the home of the Vanir.

I am just starting on this (Nov. 26,2006) so if you have more to add please let me know.

  • Giants Fßrbauti
  • Mother: Giantess Laufey
  • Hel (Hellia) - Queen of Hel, the Norse underworld and she lives in Eliudnir. Odin gave her authority over all those in the nine worlds who do not die gloriously in battle but of sickness or of old age. Her hall is called Sleet-Cold. Hel builds the ship Naglfar from the nail clippings of the dead, to be used against the Ăsir at Ragnar÷k. The path to Hel is known as the Helvegr and the gates Helgrindr or Nßgrind ("Corpse Gate"). Here Garmr is fastened, Hel's watchdog, who is bloody both on chest and neck.
  • Consort: Swedish king Dyggvi who died a natural death.

  • Fenrisulfr

  • J÷rmungandr - The sea serpent.
