One of Odin's many wives, Frigga is primarily concerned with the household and married love. She is a stately, gracious, and bountiful woman often invoked in childbirth and by those wishing to conceive. Her attempt to protect Baldur was one of the few times she acted to change the future she perceived.

A sky goddess, responsible for weaving the clouds (and therefore for sunshine and rain and the fertility of the crops), she was also responsible for weaving the fates.

She has a reputation of knowing every person's destiny, but never unveils it. She is the mother of Balder. Her hall in Asgard is Fensalir ("water halls"). Frigg's messenger is Gna, who rides through the sky on the horse Hofvarpnir. In some myths she was rumored to have had love affairs with Odin's brothers Ve and Vili.
