Brothers, am I correct in saying that Frigga, Queen of Asgard, is Vanir, daughter of Hoenir, jarl of the Vanir. Sister and wife to Njord whose children were Frey, Freya, Hlif, Hlifthrasa, Eir, Thjodvarta, Bjart, Blik, Blid and Frid and then as wife to Allfather Odin with whom she had Baldur, Thor and Hod?

I have been unable to find how/where she came to be with Odin, but perhaps it happened at the end of the Aesir/Vanir war when Njord, Frey and Freya came to live with the Aesir? ... Storm

Is that from the modern incarnation of The Norroena Society?

Tyrsman - Yes, it is. It's the book I asked about a couple of weeks ago. I have started to read it, interesting as it's laid out quite 'user friendly' and they say that they have gathered their information from 'numerous sources'. They have tried to eliminate the 'xianisation' from it. I was/am lead to believe they are reputable ... Storm

I have had no reason to be leary of their teachings but I have not studied their lore in depth.

I wonder if their portrayal of Frigga as a daughter of the Vanir is somehow extrapolated from the Heimskringla? Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I find it interesting enough to delve a little deeper.
