OTTAR The human lover of the goddess freya. He built an altar to Freya and offered sacrifices. Freya helped him win a bet by turning him into her boar, hildisvini, and taking him to visit the giantess and seeress hyndla. Hyndla revealed that Ottar was the son of Instein and the priestess Hledis and that sig-urd, the greatest of Germanic heroes, was among his ancestors.
