Frigg is said to be the wife of Odin, and is the “foremost among the goddesses”. She appears primarily in stories as a wife and a mother. She is also described as having the power of prophecy yet she does not reveal what she knows. And Frigg is the only one other than Odin who is permitted to sit on his high seat Hlidskjalf and look out over the universe.
Frigg also participates in the Wild Hunt (Asgardreid) along with her husband. Frigg’s children are
- Höðr and, in an English source
Her stepchildren are
- Váli, and
Thor is either her brother or a stepson. Frigg’s companion is Eir, the gods’ doctor and goddess of healing. Frigg’s attendants are Hlín, Gná, and Fulla.

Invocation to Frigg
Lady Frigg, most magnificent!
Asgard’s Queen, in your cloak of stars:
We call to you: Be with us now!
Send your mighty maidens to us:
Swift Gna, bringing grace and good fortune;
Golden Fulla with her overflowing gifts;
Gentle Hlin, giving comfort and strong warding
Against all grief, despair and evil
That assail the heart.
Teach us your wisdom, Mother,
To order our lives, homes and folkways rightly,
For the good of all,
And to reflect your grace and brightness.
Round of Toasts
Frigg I toast, Lady All-Holy,
Odin’s loved companion, wonder-working queen!
Shining lady, splendid queen,
Blessed in triumph, binding folk together.
Lover of your people, lady bright-minded,
Bridler of kin-strife, bourne of kin-mindfulness.
Protector and peaceweaver, friendly goddess:
Your blessing give us, to babies and brave men,
Mother kind, of mind most excellent.
Great-hearted queen, holding secret counsel
With god-loving soothsayers; to the wise-minded
Giving rede and wisdom, discretion and prudence.
Key-keeper mighty, in your starry cape,
Silver adorned, shining heaven’s queen!
Bid us blithely together
To your benches at Fen-Hall sitting;
Offer us the cup of frith and happiness,
Frigg, Queen beloved!
Frigg, my beloved.
