Frigg or Frigga (which means ‘Beloved’ in Old Norse) is a goddess found in Norse mythology. As the wife of Odin, and the mother of Baldur, she is the ‘Queen of the Æsir’. This deity was worshipped as a sky goddess and is believed to be responsible for weaving the clouds. Additionally, the Norse believed that she had the power of prophecy and was in charge of weaving the fates.
