Freyr

Freyr is a god of fertility, peace, fair weather and good harvests. Many statues of him from ancient times depicted him with a large, erect phallus. He is widely attested in Norse mythology. Freyr is the son of Njord and his unnamed "sister-wife", and the twin brother of Freya. He rides a shining boar named Gullinbursti and a ship called SkĆ­Ć°blaĆ°nir, which can be folded up and put inside a pouch when not being used.

He is the husband of the jƶtunn Gerd.
