NERTHUS


NERTHUS HERTHA Earth A north German goddess, an earth mother, worshiped as a goddess of fertility. Some say that she was the sister-wife of the god niord and the mother of frey and freya. The Roman historian Tacitus wrote that when Nerthus appeared in her wagon, drawn by oxen, it was a cause for rejoicing throughout the land, and sacrifices were made in her honor.
