Frigg (also spelled Frigga), in Norse mythology, the chief goddess, wife of the principal god Odin. Her name means "wife" or "beloved," and she was the goddess of marriage, associated with love and fertility. One of her sons was the beloved but doomed god Balder. In the heavenly realm of Asgard, Frigg lived in a magnificent palace called Fensal. She sometimes dressed in the plumage of falcons and hawks, and she could also travel in the form of these birds. She had 11 maidservants: Fulla, Hlin, Gna, Lofn, Vjofn, Syn, Gefjon, Snotra, Eir, Var, and Vor, who helped the goddess in her role as goddess of marriage and justice. They are sometimes considered to be various aspects of Frigg herself rather than distinct beings.
