The daughter of Njord

Freya had two jobs. She was the goddess of love and the goddess of war.
She was the daughter of Njord, and the sister of Frey.

She had a husband named Od. Somehow she lost him and got so upset that she cried golden tears which fell to the earth as amber.

She had a chariot was pulled by cats and she owned the precious necklace  called Brisingamen.

She also had a feather coat which she  used to fly between the worlds. Some say that Friday is named after her and Frey and Frigga.
