Thor is the Norse God of Thunder closely associated with the Viking (Scandinavian) people. Wielding his mighty hammer Mjolnir he helped the Vikings conquer the Welsh/English peoples. He is described as having a strong will, and a quick temper. He is also known to be strong, loyal, and honest. He has iron gloves and a girdle that doubles his strength, and he drives a chariot pulled by two goats. It is the rumble of the chariot wheels in the mountains that was said to be the cause of thunder; lightning was believed to be the sparks from Thor's hammer. Mjolnir was not used just for destruction, it was also used to bless a bride at her wedding. One of the legends that surrounds him involves a beautiful, royal, Welsh maiden named Mariah. Mariah is the wind. Thor immediately fell in love with her, forsaking his wife Freya. But, Mariah refused him. Thor continued to press his suit until a fierce battle ensued in which Mariah wrapped Thor in her winds, trapping him. Using the lightning and thunder Thor escaped and the battle continued. Finally, Mariah realized that the only way to beat him was to surrender to him. She welcomed him into her gentle embrace, and won. Legend has it that she gave him twenty sons and he stayed faithful to her forever after.
