Further Information

Norse Mythology

  • Ullr is the son of Sif and the step-son of Þórr. He is a good archer and an accomplished skater and skier. He is handsome and of warlike appearance and it is useful to invoke his aid in duels. Ullr lives in Ýdalir. His name is often named in skaldic poetry as a kenning for 'warrior'. It is not certain if he can be counted as one of the Vanir or the Æsir. [3]
