The present article attempts to fill a gap in
modern Old Norse scholarship by presenting
overviews of two highly mysterious figures,
the apparent goddess Njǫrun and the unnamed
wife  and  sister  of  the  major  god  Njǫrðr.  In
doing so, this article thematically connects
with previous discussion of the Vanir found in
earlier issues of RMN Newsletter.
