Freyr in Norse Mythology

Freyr

Freyr was closely linked with the Sun. He was the god of peace and fertility and also considered to be the god of Success. His father was the sea god Njord and his twin sister was Freya. His golden boar, “Gullenbursti”, is supposed to represent the daybreak. On a journey to the underworld, he saw and fell in love with the giantess Gerd. At Ragnarok, he is said to fight with the horn of an elk (much more suited to his nature rather than a sword).
