Vikings Season 3. Why does Lagertha (actress Katheryn Winnick) respect Freyja so much? Today, ten things you should know.

1.- In Norse mythology, Freyja (also Freja or Freya) is the goddess of love, beauty, fertility, gold, war, and death. Thus, we can compare her with Aphrodite, Isis or Venus.

2.- Various sacred places, flowers and plants in Scandinavia bore her name. But it was replaced with the name of the Virgin Mary during the process of Christianization. Although rural Scandinavians still continued to recognize Freyja as a supernatural figure into the 19th century.

3.- Freyja owns the necklace Brísingamen, rides a chariot pulled by two cats, and keeps the boar Hildisvíni by her side.

4.- She possesses a cloak of falcon feathers.

5.- Freyja rules over her heavenly afterlife field Fólkvangr, where she receives half of those that die in battle.

6.- She is the mother of two daughters, Hnoss and Gersemi, and is always invoked in matters of fertility and love.

7.- Freyja’s husband, the god Óðr, is often absent. Then, she cries tears of red gold for him.

8.- Freyja has numerous names: Gefn, Hörn, Mardöll, Sýr, Valfreyja, and Vanadís.

9.- Freyja is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and in several Sagas of Icelanders.

10.- The name for Friday honors her in many Germanic languages.

“When I was growing up, there were times I had to compete against boys in tae kwon do, and I’d show them right away that I wasn’t someone to mess with.” Katheryn Winnick.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
