Flag This WallpaperAdd to FavoritesEnlarge Wallpaper
Wallpaper Description:
In Norse mythology, Freyja (Old Norwegian meaning the "Lady") is a goddess associated with love, beauty, fertility, gold, victory, war, and death. Freyja is the owner of the necklace Brisingamen, rides a chariot driven by two cats, owns the boar Hildisvani, possesses a cloak of falcon feathers, and, by her husband Odr, is the mother of two daughters, Hnoss and Gersemi. Along with her brother Freyr (Old Norwegian meaning "Lord"), her father Njord, and her mother (Njord's sister, unnamed in sources), she is a member of the Vanir. Stemming from Old Norse Freyja, modern forms of the name include Freya, Freja, Freyia, and Freia.

Freyja rules over her heavenly afterlife field Folkvang and there receives half of those that die in battle, whereas the other half go to the god Odin's hall, Valhalla. Freyja assists other deities by allowing them to use her feathered cloak, is invoked in matters of fertility and love, and is frequently sought after by powerful jotuns who wish to make her their wife. Freyja's husband, the god Odr, is frequently absent. She cries tears of red gold for him, and searches for him under assumed names.
