Norse Gods

The Norse gods and goddesses are the array of deities honored by ancient Nordic worshipers. They primarily came from two different tribes, the Aesir and the Vanir, but were united in their efforts to fight the jötnar, a tribe of giants dwelling in another realm of the world tree Yggdrasil.
