In Norse mythology, Freyja (/ˈfreɪə/; Old Norse for “(the) Lady”) is a goddess associated with love, sex, beauty, fertility, gold, seiðr, war, and death. Freyja is the owner of the necklace Brísingamen, rides a chariot pulled by two cats, keeps the boar Hildisvíni by her side, possesses a cloak of falcon feathers, and, by her husband Óðr, is the mother of two daughters, Hnoss and Gersemi. Along with her brother Freyr (Old Norse “(the) Lord”), her father Njörðr, and her mother (Njörðr’s sister, unnamed in sources), she is a member of the Vanir. Stemming from Old Norse Freyja, modern forms of the name include Freya, Freyia, and Freja.

His half brother Harald Harðráði (harðráði, roughly translated as “stern counsel” or “hard ruler”) managed to escape first to Sweden and the further in to what they called Garðaríki (Todays Russia and Ukraine) and all the way to Miklagard (Istanbul). He was in these areas for over 10 year before he came home with a lot of wealth collected by his warfare, he also found love on his journey and broth his beloved back from Garðaríki to Norway.
The NORSE GONG – SHEILD OF FREYJA is produced in Samsun Turkey nearby the black sea where Harald Harðráði must have sailed past or also might have visited who knows. So this is a great journey to bring back both the wealth of knowledge and the love for the gong from Garðaríki to Norway once again.
