    The Norse god of wind and waters, Njord was the patron of sailors and fishermen; he also brought wealth to the just and deserving. As patriarch of the Vanir deities, Njord led his tribe against the Aesir gods during the Aesir-Vanir War. He would later join the Aesir as part of a peace settlement. Unlike most deities, the mythological father of Freyr and Freya was fated to survive the cataclysmic destruction of Ragnarök and be reborn into the world.

    Njord was a popular god among the Norse, and seafarers in particular. Those who worshipped him did so in hopes of receiving bounty from the seas. In Norway—the center of Njord’s worship—locals continued to offer him prayers well into the eighteenth century.
