Thor – Norse Mythology - Thor was the God of Thunder and Lightning in Norse Mythology. Thor was also a god associated with storms, oak trees, strength and the protection of mankind. Thor was the son of Odin and the giantess Jörd. The day of the week Thursday ("Thor's day") bears his name. He is generally described as fierce-eyed, red-haired and red-bearded. Thor has the power to create lightning. Thor wields the mountain-crushing hammer Mjolnir, which when thrown at a target, returns magically to the owner. To wield Mjolnir, Thor wears the belt Megingjord, which boosts the wearer's strength and a pair of special iron gloves, Járngreipr, to lift the hammer. Mjolnir is also his main weapon when fighting giants. Thor was the husband of the golden-haired goddess Sif and had three children Magni, Modi and Thrud.

 

In Norse mythology, largely recorded in Iceland from traditional material stemming from Scandinavia, numerous tales and information about Thor are provided. In these sources, Thor bears at least fourteen names, is the husband of the golden-haired goddess Sif, is the lover of the jötunn Járnsaxa, and is generally described as fierce-eyed, red-haired and red-bearded. With Sif, Thor fathered the goddess (and possible valkyrie) Þrúðr; with Járnsaxa, he fathered Magni; with a mother whose name is not recorded, he fathered Móði, and he is the stepfather of the god Ullr. The same sources list Thor as the son of the god Odin and the personified earth, Fjörgyn, and by way of Odin, Thor has numerous brothers. Thor has two servants, Þjálfi and Röskva, rides in a cart or chariot pulled by two goats, Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr (that he eats and resurrects), and is ascribed three dwellings (Bilskirnir, Þrúðheimr, and Þrúðvangr). Thor wields the mountain-crushing hammer, Mjölnir, wears the belt Megingjörð and the iron gloves Járngreipr, and owns the staff Gríðarvölr. Thor's exploits, including his relentless slaughter of his foes and fierce battles with the monstrous serpent Jörmungandr - and their foretold mutual deaths during the events of Ragnarök - are recorded throughout sources for Norse mythology.
