Frigga, Queen of the Norse Gods

Frigga is a major goddess in the Norse pantheon. She is the wife of Odin, and is the "foremost among the goddesses" and the queen of Asgard. Frigga appears primarily in Norse mythological stories as a wife and a mother. Frigga is also described as having the power of prophecy yet she does not reveal what she knows. Frigga is the only god other than Odin who is permitted to sit on his high seat, Hlidskjalf, and look out over the universe. Our day of the week, in English, Friday, derives from the Anglo-Saxon name for Frigg, Frige - Frigga.
