Forseti

by Micha F. Lindemans
In Norse mythology, Forseti is the god of justice. He is the son of the god Balder and his mother is Nanna. Forseti rules in the beautiful palace Glitnir, which serves as a court of justice and where all legal disputes are settled. Glitnir has a roof of silver that is supported by pillars of red gold.

Forseti can be compared with the Teutonic god Fosite, who was worshipped on Helgoland.
