Mythological Ancestry – Thor, son of Asgard

In Norse mythology, Thor (from Old Norse Þórr) is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, and also hallowing and fertility. The cognate deity in wider Germanic mythology and paganism. He was known in Old English as Þunor and in Old High German as Donar.

His father Odin ‘Woden’, King of the Swede’s, was a legendary King immortalised as a king of Asgard, In Anglo-Saxon England, Odin held a particular place as an euhemerized ancestral figure among royalty, and he is frequently referred to as a founding figure among various other Germanic people’s, including the Langobards. Forms of his name appear frequently throughout the Germanic record, though narratives regarding Odin are mainly found in Old Norse works recorded in Iceland, primarily around the 13th century. These texts make up the bulk of modern understanding of Norse mythology.

Thor, Son of Asgard is recorded Mythologically as one of our Norse ancestors and he appears in my own recorded tree as my 50th great-granduncle.
