About This Quiz

You may think you know all there is to know about the Norse gods, but could you name other members of the pantheon beside Thor and his father, Odin? Well, we'll tell you who you are and what that means if you take this quiz!

As far as we know, the Norse gods are mythological beings that came to be known sometime around the 9th century. They were spread by the Scandinavian people (mostly in Iceland) before the beliefs of Christ were spread. These gods and goddesses reigned supreme and even had days of the week named after them. But which one are you? What would you have ruled over in the world of the Vikings?

Would you have been Odin, King of all the Gods and the chief god of the Aesir? Would you have been Thor, God of the sky and Thunder, and the man who wielded the most powerful hammer in the history of the world? Would you have been Balder, one of the gentlest, wisest and kindest gods? Or would you have been Frigg (sometimes called Frigga), the chief goddess of the pantheon and the patron goddess of marriage and motherhood?

The only way to find out is to get started on this quiz!
