Thor's Fight with the Giants (1872) by Mårten Eskil Winge.
Thor (Old Norse Þórr) is the well known as the god of
thunder in Old Norse Mythology Odinn
is his father and the Giantess Fjörgyn his mother. Þórr is associated with the day Thursday derived
from the word Torsdag in Scandinavian countries and Germanic countries where it
is called Donnerstag, meaning the day of thunder. Donar, is also the name of
Thor in the Germanic countries. It is said that Thor’s hair and beard are bright red. His namesake is
often connected to thunder, lightning, oak trees and shear strength. The
strongest of all the Gods and the protector of mankind in Midgard. Some argue
that Thor he is not the smartest or the wisest of the Gods, but I would
disagree with this argument as he has often outwitted his enemies.
