Further Information

Norse Mythology

  • Hǫðr is a blind god, one of the Æsir, a son of Óðinn and Frigg and the brother of Baldr. Frigg made every object on earth vow never to hurt Baldr because she had had a dream of Baldr's death. All objects but the mistletoe made the vow. Loki heard of this and made a spear from that weed and gave it to Hǫðr who inadvertently killed his brother. [3]
