Thor, or THUNDER, was the most popular and in some respects the chief of the Scandinavian gods. In the Northern mythology he is described as the son of Odin and as the defender of Asgard and Midgard the Jotuns. His palace was the largest in the world, and his terrible hammer is a familiar figure in poetry. His force is represented as doubled when he puts on his wonderfull belt of strength, We keep a memory of him in Thursday and in many place names.
