the dictionary of norse mythology


AGNAR Son of hrauding and brother of geir-rod 2. When he and his brother were shipwrecked, they were befriended by an old couple who were odin and frigg in disguise. Frigg took special care of Agnar, who was eventually betrayed by his brother, Odin's protege. In later years another Agnar proba-bly the son of Geirrod took pity on Odin, who had been captured and slung between two fires. After Agnar had given Odin ale to quench his thirst, Odin chanted a song that was known as the grimnismal.
