Freya is the Norse goddess who rules over the realm of the afterlife known as Folkvangr. It is said that in Folkvangra she gracefully receives and welcomes half of the Norse warriors who
have died in battle. The other half of the warriors who have perished in battle are said to go to Valhalla, where Odin rules supreme. Freya is also associated with fertility, beauty, gold, home and love.
