List of Norse Gods and Goddesses

There were predominantly two clans of Norse gods, the Vanir and the Aesir.

The Aesir and Vanir were in conflict for quite some time, leading to the Aesir-Vanir war. Later on, however, they seemed to get along just fine and the Vanir were eventually considered to be a sub-group of the Aesir.

The Germanic people had their own pantheon of deities. The twelve Norse gods and goddesses that are categorized as the Aesir and identified as the warrior gods. A second tribe, the gods of fertility, are known as the Vanir clan.
