Norse Mythology | Loke’s ladies: Sigyn & Angerboda - Sigyn & Angrboða
Sigyn is Loke’s wife, and is deeply devoted to him. She is the mother of his sons Vale and Narve. When one of Loke’s tricks goes too far, he receives the punishment of having poison dripped on him for all eternity. Sigyn sits by him, collecting the poison in a bowl to spare him the pain. The vikings believed earthquakes were caused by Loke writhing in pain whenever she moved the bowl to empty it. Sigyn is a goddess, but has no known attributes.
Angerboda is a jotun who was Loke’s mistress. She gave birth to Hel, the goddess of death, the Fenris Wolf and the Midgard Serpent. Her name, “bringer of sorrow”, comes from the fact that her offspring killed Tor and Odin during Ragnarok.
