Thor was the son of Odin. He fought for the world against Giants and other evil forces.

He was married to the beautiful Siv who had golden hair.

Thor was the god of thunder and lightning and so ruled the weather and everything that grew.

When Thor was fighting against the Giants, he used his hammer.

Thor, the god of thunder

He wore iron gloves and a belt of strength. If he threw his hammer it always came back to his hand. Just like lightning..

The Vikings believed that during a thunderstorm, Thor was riding around on his chariot pulled by two goats.

Some people think that the weekday Thursday is named after Thor. You can also find many place names beginning with 'Thor'.
