30 Days for Njord, Day 16: The Lore

Recently I was tracking down some examples in the Lore in which Njord is called “a wise Wan (Vanir)” and I came across this article. It lays out almost every mention of Njord that we have from the Sagas and the Eddas, from Odin’s conversation with the wise jotun Vafþrúðnir in the Vafþrúðnismál regarding which Gods survive Ragnarok, to the reference of Njord as a king of Sweden in the Heimskringla.

Njord Vanir, King of Sweden It’s definitely worth bookmarking for future reference.
