Further Information

Norse Mythology

  • Nótt is the personification of the night. Her father is Nǫrr. She is said to be black and dark. She was married to a man called Naglfari and their two sons were both called Auðr. Her second husband was Annarr and their daughter was Jǫrð. Her third husband was Dellingr and their son was DagR. 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]
