Vidar's Might

Víðarr, sometimes anglicized as Vidar, was the Æsir considered to be the god of vengeance in Norse mythology. In the mythological lore, Víðarr was described as the son of Odin and the jötunn Gríðr, and was foretold to avenge his father's death at the jaws of Fenrir by killing the wolf at Ragnarök.

Legacy and influence

Vidar had a totem named after him in the popular dice game Orlog, played during the 9th century. The piece "Vidar's Might" would remove a number of the opponents die from play for that turn. A Norse man in Fornburg, Rygjafylke possessed the piece, which he gave to the Viking shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir of the Raven Clan after being defeated.[1]

In 885, during the siege of Paris, the Viking leader Sigfred introduced Eivor to his horse which he had named after the god.[2]
