Further Information

Norse Mythology

  • DagR is the personification of the day. He is the son of Nótt (night) by her third husband Dellingr. His wife is Þóra and his horse is Drasill or Skinfaxi. Óðinn took Nótt and DagR, gave them two horses and two chariots and sent them into the sky so that they should always ride in two days around the entire earth. Nótt rides in front on the horse called Hrímfaxi and early each day it makes dew fall to the earth from dripping from its bit. DagR's horse is called Skinfaxi and it illuminates the whole sky and the earth with its mane. [2]
